Mo's Challenge #141


Straight From the Heart

Mo's Challenge this week is to make a card or project using one of her wonderful images and hearts. The hearts can be on the image, the papers, used as's your choice!

I've used her cute "To Grammy's" on my card. I just love her sweet little face! 

Cleaning out my stash the other day, I came across some paint sample strips that my son had given me years ago. I decided to punch flowers out of them. The graduated colors on the strips make pretty little color coordinated flowers!

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with Cheery Lynn Lattice die and Swiss Dot embossing folder, Nellie Snellen Rose Leaf embossing punch set, SU!s  3  flower punch, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Pirouette Pink, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Neenah smooth white CS, Paint strips

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Brads, Heart charm, Bead

Please check out the other team members' blogs to see their wonderful work, then make something pretty and join us in this Mo's Challenge this week for a chance to win a gift certificate to Mo's shop! 

I love it when you stop by!

Mo's Challenge #140

The Men in Your Life!
Mo's Challenge this week is to make a masculine card.
I have always loved making cards for men, but haven't made many lately.  Mo drew this cute little guy quite a while ago when I requested an image of an old-fashioned newsboy, and I'm just getting around to using him now! I think he's just perfect for birthday cards!

Inside: "Someone is a year older! Happy Birthday!"

Images: "Extra" from Mo's Digital Pencil , Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, Dauber, Creamy Caramel ink pad, Fiskar's border punch, Deckle edge rectangle die

Papers: SU! Kraft, Basic Black, Neenah smooth white,  Basic Grey and My Mind's Eye DP

Embellishments: Brads

This one uses one of the three images from  Mo's "Lazy Mutt"set.
I made it to give to our school janitor, who left at the end of this school year.

Images: "Lazy Mutt" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital Sentiment (Unknown source)

Tools: Copics, MS border punch, Black fine line marker

Papers: SU! Taken with Teal, Creamy Caramel, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Brads

 This one uses an image I found on the web. I use it only for cards I give to family and friends. This one went to a brother-in-law.

The inside says, " ...Another 'wrenching' reminder that you're getting older! Happy Birthday!"

Images: Digital image, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: MS border punch, Glue dots

Papers: SU! Creamy Caramel, Garden Green, Burgundy,  Neenah smooth white, Paper Studio DP

Embellishments: Wooden buttons, Twine, Grosgrain ribbon, Wrench charm

So there you have it, some of my examples of cards for the men in your life. Grab one of Mo's fabulous masculine images and make a card or project to enter in Mo's Challenge this week.

Mos Challenge #139

Saturday, At the Park!

So many things go on at a park that I thought this would be a fun theme! I love Mo's animal images, so I chose "G-fa Giraffe" for my card. After all, a zoo is a zoological park!

This is one of several cards I had to make for co-workers who will be leaving us this year, six in all! You'll see others in the coming weeks.
