Birthday Moose - Stampin' Up! Jolly Friends - Fab Friday 101

 So how much turkey did you eat yesterday?  I hope you have some Thanksgiving leftovers so you don't have to cook today!    That way you can spend more time stamping!

  Let's start the weekend off with a fun Fab Friday challenge.  Maybe it will get you moving a bit and work off some of those goodies you ate yesterday.  It's a sketch challenge this time around.  I used our challenge for double duty again!  Design Team card and a birthday card all rolled into one!

  It was my dad's 70th birthday yesterday!  Yup, some years his birthday falls on Thanksgiving and I don't think you could ask for a better birthday feast than the spread our family puts out.  We had a lot of extended family gathered to celebrate the day and we ate really well all day!


  The sweet little moose doesn't have to only be used for Christmas or winter cards.  Here I left off a hat and instead gave him some balloons wrapped up in his antlers instead.

  I thought these colors worked well for a guy card.  Smoky Slate, Dapper Denim and Old Olive along with the browns for the moose.

  The greeting is from the Party with Cake set,  the balloons are from the Balloon Celebrations set and the '70' on the balloons is made with the Labeler Alphabet set.  It's fun to mix and match stamp sets to make a card for any occasion.

  On the inside of the card I stamped "make a wish" from Party with Cake and then I added "party animal!!" with the Labeler Alphabet.

  I hope this sketch will spark your creativity and you'll join us at Fab Friday by adding your creation to our gallery so we can all ooohhh and aaahhh over it!  For more great inspiration check out the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
