Favourite Mo project for 2011!

Hi there my dear friends! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday and your batteries are fully charged now and ready for a new year abounding in wonderful things!
This is our last challenge for 2011 at Mo's Digital Pencil Too and we have something special in mind for you. All you have to do in order to be eligible for 5$ shopping spree in Mo's store is to share with us your favourite Mo project you made in 2011. As simple as that.
I have lots of favorite cards but I chose this one because it's somehow special and a bit different than my usual style.

Recipe:
Stamp: Mo Manning: Dare
Coloring medium: copics/promarkers
DP: K&Co and Prima- Botanical, the golden globe is from a greeting  card
Embellishments: compass from stash, meatl corner from WOC, Tim Holtz film strip ribbon, gold dew drops from Robin's Nest
Misc: stickles, DI (antique linen and vintage photo), nestie labels 8
Sentiment: Mo Manning- came along with the image

Since I found it so hard to narrow down my favourite Mo projects, I thought maybe a top 5 would be also welcome; so here are my top Mo cards for 2011:
 

 




 Hope you like my selection:)
Thank you  everyone for visiting my blog today and over the past year; wish you all a wonderful 2012 with lots of accomplishments and especially  great health for you and your loved ones!
Big hugs,

Unfortunately I run out of black in my printer and since I was in such a hurry to have the cards done I printed this one in an awkward colour; the image is really wonderful, you can check it here in Mo's store, but they way it turned out, even coloured is not that successful...lol. 
The challenge theme we have for you over at Mo's today is

Medium: promarkers/copics
DP: Audrey Jeanne- Nature's Christmas Paper Pack, one of my favorite papers ever:)

I have met the most beautiful people from all over the world and I'm really thankful for that. I only wish days had more hours to spend them with you all and also to make lovely cards!

Mo's DP2 Challenge- The Great Outdoors


Hi everyone! This is going to be a short post as we celebrate the National Day today which means my little one is at home:) In translation, he makes sure I don't sit in front of the computer (or anywhere else out of his sight:)) for more than 1 minute.
So this is the card I made a couple of days ago for this week's challenge over at DP2 is The Great Outdoors, which means you are supposed to place Mo's characters outside or just use your imagination to create something in order to suggest "outdoors":) Of course, bear in mind your creation must have a Mo image on:)



I had to take several pictures; maybe  some of you would like to make something similar. So, all you have to  do is to cut 3 panels ( I wanted to have a separate panel for the writing) , punch a hole in the corner through all three and then attach something like a key ring or even a brad to bind them all. As simple as that.




Supplies:
Medium: promarkers/copics, chalks
DP: Papermania
Embellies: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, ribbon, charm from Bunny Zoe
Dies: Go Kreate- Frame Frilly XXL, nestabilities circles classic and scalopped
Misc; beads from stash, acrylic white paint, Diamond Dust, ultrafine glitter, gold shimmer mist
Sentiment: freebie from here

Challenges:
Wild Orchid Crafts- A Child's Christmas
Totally Gorjuss -  Sparkle

Now it's time for you to pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous cards by my talented DT sisters!! Then, please join the fun this week at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! Just remember to use one (or more) of Mo Manning's images (you can find them in Mo's online stores HERE and HERE)...and follow this week's theme: The Great Outdoors!!! Who knows, you may be the lucky winner of  $5.00 shopping spree at Mo's online store!!!

And last but not least, would love to thank you all my followers and beautiful friends; it's always great to hear from you!!! Don't forget to enter MY CANDY if you haven't already:)!
Till next time, take care!
