Warm Birthday Wishes!!! Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

Okay, Christmas is over for most people.  Our family is still trying to get the other half together.  The weather just isn't cooperating. This week we aren't having 15 inches of snow(we only got 5 today), so Kansas City is URGGGGHHHH!!!  I think we will opt for Christmas in July from now on :)

Today is Thursday and that means....Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge!!!   Always one of my favorite days.  I am still trying to get into the swing of things and getting back to my regular posts.  I love this image of Miki and her dog sled pups.  Don't they just make you feel good?!? 

The image was colored with copic markers and sponged with Tim Holtz faded corduroy distress ink.  I thought that the Eskimo Kisses village scene dp was winter and not just Christmas, so that was what I chose.  I wanted to create a warm wish Birthday card so added the MS heart punched border to the green cs.
The tag was created by stamping Birthday Wishes on vellum and gluing that to the backside of a Tim Holtz fragment tag.  This way the sentiment ink can't be rubbed off and I like that you can see the dp behind the sentiment.
Be sure that you check out all of the new Valentine images at Mo's Digital Pencil, and we are only 2 members away from another freebie.  Can you believe that Mo's Paper Craft Planet group will have 800 members.  We all know how amazing her creations are but that is still a LOT of members. 

While you are at it play along in our challenge that this week is to make a Birthday card.  All you have to do is use a Mo image and post it to the Challenge site.  Mr. Linky is being a stinker this week so just add your blog link or gallery link to your comment so we can come shower you with Luv!!!

I have got to get a new white gel pen but they are not all created equal, even the same brands.   I used one for the fur on Miki's jacket and the fur on the pups.  I really like the added detail it gives to make the fur really look like fur!!!
Thanks for stopping by.  I promise to post daily now so be sure to stop by, love to have you.

Happy Coloring!!!
