Mo's Challenge # 65

It's Playtime!

This is my second week as hostess for Mo's Challenge during the month of January, and I chose the theme of "Playtime".  I love toys, don't you? I fondly remember my childhood dolls and stuffed animals that seemed so alive to me and allowed my imagination to fly! I still have my very first stuffed animal. It's actually older than I am...... it is a furry, little gray donkey given to my mother before I was born. Its been well-loved and has lost all its fur, mane, and both of its eyes!

This  is "Some Tea", a sweet image of a little girl having a tea party with her toy bunny. I took the colors from the Basic Grey paper from the "Olivia" collection.

Image: "Some Tea" from Mo's Digital Pencil

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, Cuttlebug with Nesties, Tacky Tape, Glue Dots

Papers: SU! Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey "Olivia" DP

Embellishments: Daisy lace, Pearl cabochons, Paper doily

So take a walk down memory lane to the time when your only responsibility was to  play and make-believe. Make a card using one of Mo's adorable images of kids and their toys and enter for a chance to win. We'll be waiting  for you to come out and play!
