Mo's Challenge #219

Spots Before My Eyes!

The theme for Mo's Challenge this week is from design team member Mau. She wants us to use spots and dots in our creations with at least one of Mo's images, of course! 

My card features a 'spot of tea' and a dotted Swiss dress!  Not too much of a stretch, huh?

The inside says, "My heart is steeped in gratitude for your kind and thoughtful attitude!"

Images: One of the adorable little girls from "Tea for Three" from Mo's Digital Pencil Too, Stamped sentiment from Stampendous

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Mounting tape, MS border punch, Cuttlebug with Quick Cutz swirl die

Papers: SU! Pretty in Pink, Gable Green, Neenah white, Digital DPs

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Flowers

Hope we 'spot' you in Mo's Challenge this week! Enter for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to Digital Pencil Too!

Mo's Challenge #218

Lots of Layers!

That's Mo's Challenge for this week, and Franz is our hostess!
Most of my cards have at least five layers, so this was a pretty easy challenge for me! This one has seven layers. I love this cute little squirrel delivering his bag of acorns....he's such fun to color! This was made for a faculty member who gifted me with a box of gourmet cashews at Christmas. Yummy!

Images: "Winter Delivery" From Digital Pencil Too, Digital sentiment

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Sewing machine, Black fine marker

Papers: SU! Ruby Red, River Rock, Sage, and Creamy Caramel, Neenah white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Brads

Please join us at Mo's Challenge with a card or project using at least one of Mo's images
 for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's shop.

Hope to see you!

Mo's Challenge #217

Something New!

Hello! Anja, our hostess for this week, has a new Mo's Challenge for you...use something new! It could be a new image, technique, tool or what have you. 

I've used an image that's new to me. I think it's the perfect image for a 'Thank You' card. The inside says, "Thanks for the lift!" I loved coloring the balloon and making the flowers to match the ones on the DP!
I sent this to my co-workers at school to thank them for the beautiful bouquet they sent while I was in the hospital recently.

Images: "Going Up" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Sentiment stamp from SU!

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Sewing machine, Nellie Snellen and MS Punches for the flowers and tag, Dimensional dots, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Black, Guava, Daffodil, Celery, and Turquoise CS, Neenah white

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Brads, Tiny pearl cabochons

It's your turn! Use something new to create a card or project using at least one of Mo's wonderful images, then enter Mo's Challenge for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil.

Thanks for dropping by!

Mo's Challenge # 216


This week Amanda is our hostess, and she wants us to use flowers on our projects for Mo's Challenge. Isn't that easy? I have a huge stash of flowers but always seem to find some new ones that I just 'have to have'!

This is the first time I've used this adorable little butterfly fairy, but it won't be the last! She was a joy to color!

Mo's Challenge # 215

Anything Goes!

Happy New Year to all!
I'm back after a three week absence, and just in time for my favorite Mo's Challenge Challenge at all!
I've had some health issues that have kept me from crafting. I had an emergency appendectomy for a perforated appendix. It wasn't fun, but I'm healed now and feeling much better. It's good to be back to coloring and making cards again!

Isn't this little guy cute? With all the cold, snow, and ice recently I needed a little reminder of warmer times!

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Memory Box die, Sewing machine

Papers: SU! Yellow and Blue CS, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Seashell charms

We had such a wonderful response for last week's 'Favorite Mo Card of 2013" Challenge, and we'd love to keep up the momentum! Please join us in Mo's Challenge with a creation using at least one of Mo's images for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil.

Hope to see your work!
Thanks for stopping in!
