A Hoof is a Hoof

Today the Guardian of Glitter and I travelled north to the snow covered region of Arctic Flurries. We had received a message from Mr. Claus asking if we would be able to locate a replacement reindeer for his team this year. Apparently one of the deer had sustained an injury and was not expected to make a full recovery in time for the upcoming Winter Festival. Nikki and I searched Arctic Flurries, using locating spells and fire potions to keep warm, and were unable to locate any reindeer. We did happen upon a rather amicable moose though. 

I started this card by stamping the moose and his hat using the Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Arctic” set. They were water coloured with Distress Markers and my Hydrabrush of +90 wetness and then die cut using the coordinating die set. The birch trees were stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Joy to the Woods” set and also water coloured. I die cut some snowflakes using the Lawn Fawn “Stitched Snowflakes” die set, earning me +777 die cutting XP, allowing me to level up!

As you can see, the center portion of this card is clear, obtained from packaging I had saved: -50 hoarder XP points! The sentiment was stamped using the Bug Bites “Mistletoe” set. 

This card moose be entered into the following challenges:

I wondered how picky the fat man was of the hoofed animals pulling his sleigh. The moose we met seemed rather eager to at least audition for the task. The Guardian of Glitter and I, already cold and tired from our long search, decided to give it a try and lead the friendly moose towards the North Pole to meet with Mr. Claus.
