2nd Whimsy challenge as design member

Good Monday morning/afternoon everyone!!! It has been crazy around here. I have tried to get out of the house a lot more. It seems like since the triple digit temperatures hit the boys and I have been staying in the house. I am here to tell you that just because you don't live in a cold climate doesn't mean you can't get cabin fever. I have had it in the Alaska winters and I got a bit of it here this summer.

We have gone to the pool a couple of times. My boys are Alaska boys and do not much care for the water. Remember our beach trip? Yeah, that is about the same thing as they do at the pool. they sit there for about 5-10 minutes and then they finally get their feet wet. We went on Friday and someone left a ball. My boys got a hold of it and started tossing it back and forth in the pool and my oldest finally got in the deepest part of the pool (about chest deep) :)

Today I am going show you my 2nd assignment as a Whimsy Guest Designer. The challenge this week is "Christmas in July". Can you believe it is July already? The time has gone by so fast. I can't believe that my oldest baby will be in Kindergarten next month. I am so scared and so excited all at the same time.

Anyway, back to the card. I had no idea what I was going to do. I decided that this is the perfect opportunity to get my Whimsy stamp that I have wanted, a moose. I love the moose. It reminds me of being back in Alaska and I truly, deeply miss living there.

With the moose I just knew I had to make it a snowy/wintery/holiday scene. I went simple with this card because I wanted to show off the beautiful stamp that it is. I used liquid applique to make the snow pop and some sparkly fluff to make the moose antlers velvety. I am so happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it as well.

Be sure to pop on over to the Whimsy Challenge blog and enter your favorite Christmas/wintery/holiday project.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
