Mo's Challenge #165

"D" is For.......

I love these alphabet challenges, don't you? It's fun to think of things that begin with the given letter and work them into a card or project. 
I have several cards that fit the theme for this Mo's Challenge this week.

 My first card uses Mo's image, "Darn It!" I printed and colored digital images of thread and scissors to use as embellishments for this fun image.

Inside: "Being sick is no fun! Hope you're soon on the mend!"

Images: "Darn It!" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital spool and scissors, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, Sewing machine, Oval punches, Glue dots, Mounting tape, Paper crimper

Papers: SU! Only Orange, Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Light-weight cardboard, Neenah white

Embellishments: Assorted buttons


 Of course, "D" is for dog, so I made this card for our grandson's thirteenth birthday 
using Mo's image, "Just Tia", the sweetest Rotty ever!


 Inside: "No bones're a big dog now! Happy Birthday!"

Images: "Just Tia" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital bone image, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, White gel pen, MS Border punch, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Apricot, Neenah white, Basic Grey DP

"D" is for Dickens, too!

Inside: "Bless us...everyone! Merry Christmas!"

Image: "Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit" from  Mo's Digital Pencil Too (Mo's old store), 
SU! snowflake stamps
