A Trio of Valeries from Mo Manning- warning - picture heavy!

I think these images - Valerie in Winter Trio - are going to be my new favourite stamps from Mo Manning - I just adore them, and when I couldn't decide which one to colour up first, I decided to colour all three and make three similar cards, whilst I had all the colours, papers out etc.
I think this one of Valerie hugging her frosty friend, is my most favourite of the three but only just!
The papers I've used are from a Tim Holtz 12x12 pad - I love the mix of designs on the papers - it meant I could make what actually turned out to be quite quick cards.  The sentiment on this card, is from Stampin Up.
I also love this one of Valerie with her puppy who has all but disappeared under the snow - just gorgeous!
The mittens are a Memory box die and the nordic print buttons are from Hobbycraft
The Let It Snow sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse.
Finally a picture ( a rubbish picture) showing the three together!
I think I've now made about 60 of my cards for this year - only another 25 to go!   I'm not ready!  Hope you're doing better than me!!

Totally beautiful cards. I absolutely love Mo's images, makes me so wish it snowed here so I could use them.

these are all super cards. I love those corners and the papers are terrific together. I can't quite believe that Mo Manning has a range of images named after me! I will have to go and buy these for sure. Hugs Mrs A.

What a wonderful trio of cards! I love them all! I am amazed that you have so many Christmas cards ready to go - I have not started yet! I am so behind again this year - too much time spent on other projects so I better get busy! Your beautiful cards have inspired me to begin! Wishing you a happy day today!

THESE ARE GORGEOUS!!! I so hope I get a gift certificate for Mo's store for Christmas (you might want to mention that to Tom on Friday PLEASE) I love your red colouring! I love your mittens (these are already on the list and have hopefully been shared with my brother) and I love your papers and buttons and corners and twine and everything! One question though (and I hope nobody tells Mo) but why is Valerie dragging a rhino backwards through the snow? Those poor creatures are endangered and he doesn't look like he is able to breathe with so little of him above the surface! Love Lesley
