Tolo from Mo's Digital Pencil - for Making Cards Magazine

This is the final of my cards made for Making Cards Magazine back in February - seems like another world!  This is Tolo from Mo's Digital Pencil and one of my all time favourite images from Mo.  My little granddaughter, Violet saw it when it was returned from it's photo shoot for the magazine and said she loved it so I kept it for her 4th birthday a couple of weeks ago and added her name and her age.  She's so excited to be 4 -missing her so much at the minute but had a little face time last night.  Mind you, all she wanted to do was speak to her Aunty Em who has come home for the duration.
The papers are Introspection from Prima and the sentiment is from the Kaisercraft You set.

I hope your keeping well and safe at the minute.

PFP Bunnies and/or Chicks Challenge

Hi everyone, I'm completely out of routine in these strange times so posting a bit late today!!  I think we do need to have things to distract us at the moment and crafting is a great pastime, that also keeps  us connected for those of us that blog and uses social media.
Anyway,  it's new challenge day at Passion for Promarkers, and our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up  and the DT have been lucky enough to work with some of their images.  I love this little bunny - Easter Bunny is his name, what else!!

Mo's Loads of Love

Morning folks - I hope everyone is keeping well.  I find I'm not blogging so much - there's been so many other things to think about at the minute. 

I suppose Loads of Love from Mo's Digital Pencil is quite appropriate in these times of keeping clean! I matched up the image with some old papers but I've lost the note I  made to myself of who they'reby. sorry!  I also borrowed the Hello die from my friend, Lesley, when I visited before the days of social distancing and self-isolation! So again I don't know who made it!
Marianne Products Used

Stitched Circle Dies - CR1360
 Cat Dies - LR0591

People keep wondering how they're going to stay busy during these strange times but I find with crafting there are so many choices- card-making, crochet, scrapbooking - I still don't have enough time!

Stay safe everyone.

Fierce Fairy Frankie for Making Cards Magazine

This is another of  the cards that I made for  Making Cards Magazine last month.  I used a number of Mo's Digital Pencil fairies for the feature and I think this is one of my favourites, Fierce Fairy Frankie.  Such a great expression!

The  papers are by Prima from their Melody 6 x6 pad, and I love the Wonky Stitched  Dies from  MFT Dienamics.    There's also a couple of Marianne Dies as per below:

Oval Frame Die   LR0607
Leaves Die SetLR0621
I love the sentiment too that comes with the image - perfect!!

Hope everyone is staying safe and well at the moment.  As least us crafters can find plenty to keep us busy if we have to self-isolate!

Big  cyber hugs,

Passion for Promarkers Make It Feminine

Hi folks -I'm a little late posting today!  This is for our new challenge that started this morning over on the Passion for Promarkers  challenge blog with a lovely theme of Make it Feminine as chosen by our  Nic.  We're being sponsored by JMC Designs and I've used one of their fab quirky images - meet Pippa!

I love pink and black together and these Nit Wit papers are also the perfect complement to this little birdie.  I've cut the curved borders with a Marianne die set, Catalogue no  LR0518.  
I think the sentiment may have been a freebie from years ago but can't be sure!

You can check out the rest of my teamie makes here- using more gorgeous JMC images!

Teen Genius for the new challenge on Mo's Challenge blog

I sort of feel that today's card is rather appropriate given the global problem with those pesky Corona virus germs!  Here's hoping those clever scientists are busy working on a vaccination or something similar.  For now just keep washing those hands!

This is Teen Genius from Mo's Digital Pencil and he's for the new challenge over on the DP2 Challenge blog here where this month's theme is simply the colour Green. 

I've kept him quite simple because the papers are quite busy-from Graphic 45. The little test-tubes and conical flasks were from my friend's stash and the little bubbles are a Memory Box  die set that has been in my stash an age!!
Check out the fabulous green makes of Mo's DT here on the challenge blog and then come and join in our challenge!!  Keep washing those hands!!

Happy weekend!
