First, I started with a Prairie Fairy Digital Stamp, The Moost. The cool thing about digital stamps? You can alter them and make them work for YOU! I decided to change the sentiment on the sign from "Love You The Moost" to "Moose You So Much!" Very easy to do in Photoshop, or another image editing program. I then colored my image using my Prisma pencils. I used some cotton to trim his winter clothes and added some Stickles too. I also used Stickles for some sparkly snow. The patterned paper is Autumn Leaves and The Paper Studio, while the cardstock is Bazzill. The paper ribbon trim is by Flair Designs, the jute is by Fiskars, and the ribbon is from my stash. I also inked all my edges with Stamp Craft, Studio G, and KI Memories ink. The pine needle branch, berries, and pine cone are actually off an old Christmas decoration. I used some hot glue to hold those bad boys in place!
I hope y'all get a chance to head on over to Fairy Fun Fridays and check out all the awesome creations by the rest of the DT!

On a different note, and a sad one too, I didn't particpate in last week's Fairy challenge and have been absent from blog land due to the death of a dear friend. She was very young (same age as me...32) and very special. It was sudden, unexpected and tragic. I miss her so much and will for a very long time. She was a beautiful person and a fabulous mother. Get-togethers just won't be the same without her. It is so easy to take life for granted and think things will always be okay...to put off calling a friend today because you think they will be there tomorrow. Please don't...make sure your friends and family know exactly what they mean to you! Please keep Melissa's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers...I really appreciate it.
