Merry Christmas (moose) cards

Happy Monday everyone....I just wanted to pop in here and share a couple cards and photos. I'm almost finished with my morning coffee and I'll be off and running. I need to finish up my shopping today (hopefully) and then finish the decorating here at our home. We just had a blizzard the other day and it took a day to dig out from that. But at least we are going to have a WHITE Christmas this year, finally!!! We never have a white Christmas. So this snow was very welcomed. I just wish it wasn't so much all at once. ..lol..but nonetheless, we have it and it's here to stay for awhile. So first up is a card I made for a special customer and his wife that we have. He is just sooo funny and always smiling and happy. So I just wanted to make them a special card this year. I used one of those display globes from flower soft and added some diamond dust to the inside as a shaker. Let me tell you, the globe is huge. So much bigger than the one I used and posted on my snowman card below. But I love it. Even though it's so much bigger, I like that you can really do more things with it. The paper is Making Memories, used the Martha Stewert leaf punch for the tree and $1 stamps from Michaels and Ranger glitter glue. I made ribbon corners to match the folded ribbon at the bottom.
This next card is a stamp I got at a rubber stamp convention. He's just the cutest moose. I colored him in with prisma pencils added glitter glue and cut him out. I also used the Storybook Cricut cart to make the frame and some shaved ice. I still need to add a sentiment.
And last but not least, this is our little man (grand baby). I bought him this little Steelers outfit for Christmas and had to make sure it fit him. Everyone knows that I just love The Steelers. And I want him to grow up "loving" them as much as I do. Although I think I will have a problem with that. Our daughter and his Daddy are Baltimore Ravens fans. So I can see a fight on my hands for this venture. But only time will tell who he'll root for in the years to come...heehee....on a little side note, he's not feeling to well. He's got phenomena and is very sick right now. I just hope that he gets to feeling better soon. So if you could, just say a little prayer for him.
look at that happy face. He really is such a ham when it comes to the camera...
Well that's all I have for today...probably the week. I hope that everyone has a safe and Happy Holiday. I'll try to post later this week if I get a chance, but I know this week is very busy for all of us here at our home. Hugs from a very snowy Charm City
