Rachelle Anne Miller moose

Happy day-before-Thanksgiving!!! Are you all busy cooking & cleaning today?? We are going to mom's so my only responsibility is dessert. I am making a banana split cheesecake....this will be the first time I'm making it so we'll need to taste test it before I post the recipe here :)

I was so excited when I saw this Rachelle Anne Miller moose at 7 Kids College Fund. I had tried to get it earlier this year, but couldn't find it!! This & a few others will be in the store for I believe a limited time, so if you want 'em, go get 'em!!

As anxious as I was to use this cutie, there are days I just shouldn't be allowed near my stamping table. Yesterday was one of them. Good grief, I colored this image 3 different times before I was happy with it! I'm still not 100% thrilled with it, but I just didn't have it in me to do it a 4th time, lol!! Good thing he's so cute....maybe you won't notice my mess-ups!!

He's colored with Prismas & gamsol.....& I added Crystal Effects to the lights. The papers are SU's Real Red (I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink because the red was just too bright!) & Basic Grey Mistletoe & Pear, a limited edition line from last year. I used the layout from Papertake Weekly.....from LAST week, lol....good thing this week's challenge is make a Christmas card so I can still enter it!! The corners are Cuttlebug dies......I really wanted to add something to the corners of the red layer but nothing looked it's a bit of a simple card!

Not sure if you can see the CE on the lights on this photo or not...that red again....& after Xmas cards will be Valentines Day cards so I'd better get a handle on how to photograph red sometime soon!!

I hope you all have a fabulous Turkey Day!! I cannot wait to eat!! I love to eat!! Oh yeah, & spending time with family is important too, lol.....but I still love to eat :)

Oh, my friend asked me if I wanted to go shopping with her on Friday. Early. Um......I DON'T do early, & I DEFINITELY don't do shopping on Black Friday!!! Do you?? Lots of deals out there, if you can bear the crowds. I'm not generally claustrophobic, but I have a feeling I would not do well with all those thousands of people!!

Wow this is just beautiful! I think your coloring is great! I'm with you - love to eat too. And I swore I would never shop the day after Thanksgiving, but I found myself at Michael's tonight. LOL. My father in law told me to get myself an early Christmas present - so I did. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
