Wacha doing? Chilling on the weekend? Surfing around for card ideas? Catching up with friends? Googling yourself ...
Yesterday during my nursing lunch break, I went out to the Playhouse to read this week's challenge themes aloud to Hammy as he chased his tail. It's a thing we do. That's his way of thinking, remembering, connecting the dots, lining up the ones that jive with each other, eggsetra. When I got to the Christmas challenges and told him that Merry Monday's challenge was to use a moose, he squealed and did a somersault halt.
When Hammy squealed, that made me squeal, too, even though I didn't know why. It's funny how reactive we are, isn't it? Then we both looked at each other, startled by our squealing. Hammy quickly reminded me that we have had an orphan moose die-cut in our Bits Box since the last century. Well, hello! That made me squeal for reals.
And I made this with it:
- Addicted to Stamps and More: Anything Goes.
- Colour Me ...! Striking.
- Less Is More: Masculine.
- Merry Monday Christmas Challenge: The Moose is Loose.
Recently I made a few thank you cards and one of them went to my friend Kylie who runs Happy Little Stampers (HLS) along with a few other challenges and companies. When Hammy and I saw that Simon was holding a watercolor challenge, we thought it would be a good time to post this:
