Mo's Combined Blog Hop!

The winner has been chosen!
It is comment #117, Anki! 
Congratulations!
 Please contact Mo to claim the image, "Mummu and Me"

 A huge "Thank You" to all of you who left such wonderful comments!

Mummu Rocks!

Welcome to my blog! This is the first Blog Hop I've ever been involved in, so I'm excited and a bit nervous. This Hop is in celebration of two milestones for Mo...passing 1,000 members in her PCP group and the six month anniversary of her start in creating digital images for stamping and scrapping. With her wonderful talent and kind and giving attitude, I know her appeal will continue to grow exponentially!
There are special prizes from Mo for the lucky participants who gather the letters from each blog and guess the correct phrase they spell out. 
Winners will be chosen at random from all the correct entries. Just submit the final phrase to Mo by email.  There are lots of prizes...gift certificates, Stampavie stamp sets, Mo's coffee mugs, t-shirts, tote bags, and more. Each of us will also award the image that we've used to one lucky person who comments on our blog.
Jak Heath is the first stop on the hop.

For this Hop, both teams were asked to use their favorite image from Mo. I found it difficult to choose, because I love them all, but settled on a Mummu image because "Mummu Dancing" was the very first one that caught my eye six months ago. The images just exude her sweetness and love of life. I want to be just like her when I grow up! 



The image I used is called "Mummu and Me" Isn't it full of joy?!
I printed her on PTI white, colored her with Copics, cut it out using the Large Label die from Shape-abilities, and sponged the edges with Creamy Caramel ink. I used mounting tape to secure it to the Basic Grey DP. It's finished  with yellow gingham ribbon, Basic Grey buttons, ribbon roses, and the Martha Stewart branch punch. Two punches from SU! make up the tag. The word is from Warm Words, a Stampin' Up set, and the Pumpkin Pie  and Garden Green CS is also SU!
Inside it says, "Happiness is contagious...I caught it from you!"

Just a reminder....I will be choosing someone who will win this wonderful image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I will assign consecutive numbers to each comment on this post, put them all in a basket, and pull out a random number. You will then have 3 days to reply and claim your prize!


This Grandma's Rockin' not Rocking!

 

 The little rocking chair is another in my collection of miniature chairs. It's one of my absolute favorites! It  is a handmade antique replica of a scroll-arm rocking chair and is so perfectly made to scale that, if it were photographed with nothing else, you might not realize that it's not full sized.




Next stop on the Hop is Sandy Hulsart !
