Tribute to Amanda--

Several weeks ago, the Mo's Digital Pencil world was stunned by the sudden loss of a wonderful one of our own, a fellow DT member Amanda Reed.  Mo created the following adorable image as a way for us to show our love to Amanda and her family and her love for cats and use the purchase price of the image as a donation to an Animal Shelter in Amanda's town.

The image, Amanda,  is adorable and I know that Amanda smiled down a little when my card was done, Here is a little cutie just for you Amanda dear:


I think the sentiment says pretty much everything, the memories of all of the fun challenges we shared will live on forever and she will be watching over the remaining challenges smiling at the Mo images she loved so much.

The only change to our normal Challenge format is that this fortnight you must use the Amanda image available for 1.00 and there will be a random drawing for a 5 dollar gift card.

Have a wonderful creative week and thanks for stopping by.

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Clean and Simple--Really ME????!!?

Thursday is Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Day every 2nd and 4th  Thursday of the Month and this week the hostess is Kim, who chose the theme CAS.  Here is my rendition of CAS which is not always so simple for me, I do layers, and I do embellishments, so a single layer besides the base cs  is a struggle but here you go:


Winter Fairy Halla is the image I chose for the theme this week. Isn't she just the cutest little chiller? There are many Winter Fairies to choose from and they are all wonderful.

The Challenge Blog is getting a little lonely as there have not been as many entries as in the beginning. Maybe everyone is getting kids started in school and adjusting to the new schedules and kids activities  so if you have time we love to have you join us and grab a Mo image and enter it for a chance to win a chance at the Top 3 badge and also a random drawing for a 5 dollar gift card for each 25 entries each challenge.  Even I have time to make a card for the challenge every two weeks :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day/week :)

Creative Inspiration Challenge card

My DT buddy, Tracy, is the guest designer for Creative Inspiration Challenge Blog right now and she made a darling card and it inspired me to create a card for one of my many Mo images I have colored lately.  I am always in the mood to color but sometimes I like to do something new and different, thanks Tracy :)

I really wanted to color this little darling Mo's digital Pencil image  in neutral colors so she may look dull to some of you but she looks very natural to me.

I love the leather flower but I thought it fit the theme of this outdoorsy image, maybe a little heavy but I tried to keep the rest of the card light and I think the polka dots keep it young and happy.  Work with me here :)

Thanks for the new and different Challenge Tracy, I have bookmarked it, hopefully I will find time to play often. I appreciate a good sketch challenge, less brain strain for me :)

Hugs,
Cathy

Mo's Digital Pencil--Fall

Are you ready for Fall in your neck of the woods?  In Nebraska, it is getting cooler and a little too early for my liking....I prefer summer and warmer temps, but no one asked me if I was ready :(    But I am ready for Tracy's wonderful challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge,  which is Fall because Mo created two new Valerie images and I LOVE Valerie:



Aren't they just adorable?   You get both images in the purchase, I love two for one images especially when they are so darn cute.

Be sure to grab a image from the Mo's Digital Store and play along in the Challenge for a chance to win a 5 dollar gift certificate for each 25 entries in the challenge.   While you are checking things out be sure to check out the DT members cards and their choices for the Fall Inspiration.

While you are checking out Mo's sites be sure to check out Belle and Bronte's Clubhouse where you can chat with Mo, DT members, and all of the members, ask questions, show what you are working on, show off your projects and see Mo's newest images as they are created....doesn't get much better than that.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

:Puppy in Boot/ Aurora Wings

I think I made the deadline for the Puppy in Boot Contest if not I got a cute card made, never a bad thing.  When Aurora Wings reached 1500 members Mitzi gave this darling image and offered a Contest which ends tomorrow.  Here is my card:

As with ALL of the Aurora Wings images I had so much fun coloring this darling image.  I usually go for the more intricate detailed images but also love every image I have ever seen that Mitzi has created.  They are not all my personal style but all are a wonderful art project to color.  Thanks for what you do Mitzi.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by Mitzi's Etsy store and just try to buy only one image...like the tootsie roll owl you can't do it...

Have a wonderful creative day.

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Back to School

Can you believe it has been two weeks already and time for a new Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge?  The theme for this two weeks is Back to School, brought to you by my super talented DT member Tracy and I chose Tom Sawyer:


How can you not think of Tom Sawyer for Back to School if you lived in my day, as my kids used to say, the dark ages, gotta love kids :) as it was a classic that we read in grade school and I enjoyed it enough along with Huckleberry Finn to make me want to read more books.  The rest is history LOL.

I colored this darling image with copics and used a fence SVG file which I sponged to look likek peeling paint.  I can just see Tom putting down the paint bucket and grabbing the fishing pole with Aunt Polly hollering out the door to not be late for dinner :)
Be sure to grab a Mo's image and play along in the challenge, for every 25 entries there is a chance to win a 5 dollar gift certificate to the Mo's Digital Pencil shop and there are new images and lots of old ones to choose from, so can't wait to see what you color up :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful colorific time.

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Girl's Birthday

Where does the time go, it is already time for a new Mo's Digital Pencil challenge, and although we had an extra week in July, we are ready with our Girl's Birthday Challenge for you for the next two weeks.  I chose the adorable, Baby Fairy Bee:


I love the hexagon die cut, which is actually a SVG free file I  found online,  with this adorable image, reminds me of honeycomb...work with me here :)  Because the theme is Girl's Birthday I added the Happy "B" ee Day sentiment.  A few buttons and a little lace and I think it is an adorable for any sweet girl card :)

Be sure to join us by entering your challenge card using  Mo's Digital Pencil image linked to the challenge blog and you might win a  5 dollar gift certificate given for every 25 entries in a random drawing for each challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative week.  Be sure to join us at Bella and Bronte's Clubhouse where you can chat and show off your creations too :)
