Merry Monday #175 & SAS4Kids

I got another card done, only took me three days! lol  With all that goes on here, it’s a wonder I ever get a card done!  I’m actually working 3 different cards that are kind of the same, only not, if you know what I mean;)  Anyway….I did finish one of them and I thought I would enter it in the challenge over at Merry Monday #175, and it’s done before the last day, yay! 🙂  Here is their challenge for this week:

Merry Monday #175aSDC17953Hmmm, now that I’m looking at it here, it looks like I followed the photo almost like a sketch.  That’s really strange, because the other cards I’m working on are totally different.  I chose this one because my granddaughters voted, they liked the plaid moose 😉 lol  I did too, it was not intentional on my part:)

I used two different digital images from Esty.  The background which is the trees with the tan color, and the plaid moose.  I added a small “snow” covering at the bottom from just some torn cardstock.  That layer was added to a Stampin’ Up! Real Red that was embossed with the Stampin’ Up! Tulip Embossing Folder.  Finally I put the whole thing onto a white card base.  I think it looks even better in hand;)  This card will be going into a box for Send A Smile 4 Kids, as will all the cards I showcase today! 🙂


Yes, that means I have a guest today! 🙂  Janelle Klapperich is from SD, she has sent many cards before to be shared with our kids at SAS4Kids! 🙂  I believe Janelle has told me before what cutting machine she is using, but today, I can’t remember:(   I guess I should have written it down, maybe she’ll let us know:)
