Shadowbox for a friend

I swear I never keep any of the cool things I make.  I always make things to give away, oh well; at least I have pictures and get to see the expressions on their faces when they see them!!!  This shadow box I put together for a friend of mine who, growing up, was like a second mom to me.  She has a very cute country home she calls the Red Moose, all thru the home she has accents of moose and outdoorsy items.  After my last trip down to CA in the spring I made her a thank you card with a plaid back ground and a moose on the front.  Very simple but she absolutely loved it, she wanted to put it in a shadow box and display it in her office.  I ended up surprising her with a shadow box, put the card in it, and gave it to her.  She hung it on the wall right then and there.  I love it when people get excited about things I make.  I had found this saying I loved so I put it in the box and the card sits on the bottom.  I took this picture before the card was put in it but the space at the bottom is open for the card. 

The top part says “Advice from a Moose”
Think big
Spend time in the woods
Eat plenty of greens
Hold your head up high
Stay on track
Keep your nose clean
It’s ok to be a little wild
