Hahahahha...Love you googly-eyed moose, Tenia! Actually, when we see moose around here (we do, but not often), I'm the one wearing googly-eyes! They truly are majestic creatures (I remain a very respectful distance from them...they are BIG!). Your card is fabulous, as are you! Thank you for being part of Taheerah's fabulous Advent series!
