Wintertime at Mo's!

Hey there, my sweet friends! It's great to be back with another great challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! set by our super-smart, -talented and -funny sistah Pat :


As simple as that! Now, this is one of those tasks you were just about to do but only needed a hint, weren't you?:) ; I know we are all into Christmas and winter cards these days, so all you have to do is to share them with us! Of course, you'll just have to make sure they have a Mo image on before submitting it to Mr. Inlinkz:)!

I have no idea how to call the "thing" I have to show you today; it's a sort of card in  a box or with a box; well, it's something I meant to hang on the wall and it's quite lovely and bright if you could see it on my dining room wall, well that was before my 2 year old came home and started pointing at it. Generally, he takes no interest in my cards which are all over and even within his reach. Moreover, when one happens to fall from a shelf he immediately brings it to me, knowing he is not to play with. But this one he just had to examine closely and started laughing and making faces; "grandes chaussettes" he said- meaning "big socks" lol; that's what he got from it. I had to hide it eventually before starting pulling the tiny bells!

This was my first Mo Manning image and since last year I only had the time to make one card with it just thought I'd use it again. The image is called Christmas Morn and I love it to bits!

Stamp; Mo Manning- Christmas Morn
Medium; copics, promarkers 
Embellies: Wild Orchid Crafts poinsettia, metal corner, golden bells and pearls, lace and ribbon from stash
Dies; Marianne Design snowflakes
Sentiment: freebie from Bizzy Becs

In case any of you would love to try this out, it's quite simple: make a box lid- mine is 5.5 inches square and just glue it to a thick base cardstock (mine is 7 per 7 inches). You can embellish the edges however you like. Just a tip: next time I would use paper lace - it's easier to adhere it and make a frame round the window:)

Creatalicious Challenges -  Christmas and make sure it SPARKLES
 Marianne's Design Divas -  Sparkle and Shine
Digital Tuesday -  Christmas Time
Everybody-Art-Challenge - Little Present
Sassy Cheryl's -Anything Goes

Ok, that's it from me; now it's time for you to head on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE so you can check out the wonderful projects my talented DT sisters have prepared for your inspiration! Then make your own Mo Manning challenge project and join the fun!! Just remember to use one (or more) of Mo Manning's images (you can find them in Mo's online stores HERE and HERE)! One lucky participant (chosen at random, of course) will receive a $5.00 shopping spree at Mo's online store.

OMGosh, everybit is gorgeous...your frame is so intricate...I love how you have put different things on the different sides, how you have combined the silver and golds and holographics and your gold corners with the copper/brass ornaments! Your coloring is SO great and fun! the color choices are just beautiful Iulia! WOW...I can't stop looking at it!!!! Besides, stockings are the best part!!!! Great success on the challenges and of course on ours at Forever Friends. Divine Love, Samara
