The man in my life is my friend of 34yrs and husband of 29 of them!   He is a very outdoors person, loves the forest immensely and has hunted in them since he was 12 yrs old.  He comes alive every fall as the days shorten and cool , the birds head south and the 'rut' begins. It is his time of year and I become a hunter's widow, I call it my 'crafting time':O)!

Card details:
Stamp:Via Las Vegas stamp: sentiment computer generated, Stampin' Up's 'banner blast'
Punch: circle punch, one hole punch,round corner punch ,Stampin' Up's 'petite banner' punch
Colour medium: stamped image with versa-mark and used Stampin Up 'Early Espresso' embossing powder to heat emboss the moose and give it it's colour  
Paper: Stampin' Up's garden green, whisper white, chocolate chip: 
Other:  twine, brads
Technique: heat/wet embossing using background stamps and the moose stamp. The heat embossing on the moose  looked great IRL but I could not take a decent picture of it and I tried everything from outdoor light to a picture box. I ended up digitally enhancing the colouring of the moose to make it presentable to post.

I have tried so many of them and this one is the best. But it has to be the Poster Paint one. I cannot find it where I live so I order it online at I always order more than Hope this helps...Hugs, joann
