I take no personal credit for the creativity behind this wonderful little Canadian moose (or "moosh" as someone I know has been known to call them). I made this card at our June card club evening at my demo's place - I don't usually upload my club cards but this little fella is one of my all-time faves. I know my demo received her original in a swap at Leadership and on her blog she credits "Cara B." for the one she received. I searched the gallery for something similar and found one or two that were close, but none quite like this little fella. Since it's Canada Day, I simply had to share him. So, thanks to Donna Wizniuk (peama) and Cara B. for sharing their creativity - and Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks.
PT: I think I counted over 10 different punches/die cuts

Hey, Heather!! Happy late Canada Day. We watched fireworks last night, but we didn't see any Canadian Moose!! Well, now I have and what a cutie. Look at all those punches!! A punchkateer piece of heaven!! Love the wonderful wood grain in the bg too. We have another "light show" going on in the sky tonight. It has my 8 yr. old grandson curled up in bed with his uncle cause he's a little skeerd of these lights and noises!!

Too cute! My husband is a big fan of moose...although he has never seen one...he hopes to some day ;)
This just popped off the page for me. Great creativity. And the woodgrain is the perfect background. TFS!
