I Moose You
This week's sponsor at For Fun Challenges is the Digi Doodle Shop. Our challenge is patriotic colours, which for me here in Canada is Red and White. With the hockey playoffs on and the local team ready to make it to the quarter finals, I've been really inspired lately so look for more Canadiana and hockey cards soon!
For this week, I was given this fabulous moose image from our sponsor, which is just so stereotypically Canadian. I loved it. I've never actually seen a moose here, only in the States but still, people think of nature when they think of Canada. Go figure.
The background image is Loveliest of Trees from SU and I did a quick copic wash of the background colours. The maple leaf is a Nestie which I just love. I use it more for scrapbooking than anything else. The sentiment is from My Favourite Things, Nature Calls (retired). I showed it to my husband and had to explain "I Moose You," "I Miss You." He didn't get it. What do you think? Should I forgo that sentiment next time?
