CDS Sneak Peek - Moose Friends

Welcome to day 3 of the CDS sneak peeks! Today I have 2 cards to show you, but I will be showing the other a little later on this morning in another post :) The stamp set that I am showcasing is a spin off of the February stamp of the month and it's called Moose Friends. This adorable little fellow was so cute that they just had to continue producing more of him *wink*

Since the set is called Moose Friends, I couldn't have this cutie standing there all lonely like, so I added this mischievous little blue bird to his head (Moosey doesn't mind giving him a ride every now and then - what a generous guy...he'd do anything for his friends) *grin*

I of course gave the images lots of dimension with paper tole and literally made him pop out of the card. I ended up adjusting an old sketch from CPS for this image and loved it because it was curvy and whimsical. I picked the paper out to specifically coordinate with these really cool buttons made of sea shells (the large blue button) that a friend of mine had found while we were out shopping (a favourite pastime for most of you as well no doubt!)

Now that you have seen mine, don't forget to do some blog hopping to see all of the samples for cool sets that have been shown off today!(Ageless Antiques, Moose Friends, Beautiful Butterflies)
