Peeking Sloth - I feel a little like this guy at the moment!

This wasn't meant to be today's card!  I'd coloured up a Mo image a couple of weeks ago and was going to pop it on a card yesterday after my stint in Holly's shop!  But could I find it anywhere -no!
So I needed to make a quick card for my post on Mo's Dream Team blog today and so used Peeking Sloth from the set Belated Birthday Wishes and Peeking Sloth - it's twofer!  I feel like this little guy has just about used all his energy to climb to the wall and peek over to send his greeting (belated of course)

The sentiment is from a fab Woodware set, the papers are from a First Edition mat block and the palm trees are a Marianne Die - LR0541.

It's our day to have Violet, so I need to go and clear her space in my craft room as I know she will want to some  arting!!

Valerie in Winter Trio from Mo's Digital Pencil

Well, another Christmas card from me today using a favourite Mo's Digital Image stamp - Valerie and Pup - those ears peeking out of the snow are so cute!!  The stamp is actually one of a set of three called Valerie in Winter  and are fantastic value at $6.75 (so a little less in English pounds!)

I've also coloured her in  my favourite  copic blue combo of B29, B26 and FB2.  The papers are Bo Bunny and the Sentiment and Snowflake are Marianne products, details below.

Sentiment - Happy Holidays - CS1009
Snowflake - LR0393

Still warm here in the Lake District  and it's Nanny Duties day so we may pop to the beach!

Christmas Dinosaurs

Marianne Designs asked me to make a Christmas Dinosaur card with their new die set - which  I did wonder about to be honest!  But I'm really pleased with how this came out - I've mixed and matched with some older Christmas dies - the scale of the hats and scarves from the Snowman set fit these dino pals perfectly!!  List of products used below - I do love these snowy tree papers too!

PFM Dies and Punches

I am so running behind today - this is my card for our newest challenge at Passion for Markers with our fabby Lorraine B choosing Dies and/or Punches as the theme - my cup of tea, right there!  

I've used this gorgeous image from Mo's Digital Pencil - Baby Fairy Bee - another oldie that I unearthed when flicking through my print outs.  She's coloured with Copics and framed against these gorgeous papers and a newish Marianne foliage arch die.  Details below.

The sentiment is from Woodware and I've punched the frames with a Stampin Up combo of punches.

A Day at the Beach

I've got a little bit of sunshine for you today.  I was flicking through my printed Mo's Digital Pencil images and came across this merge of Daniella and Beach Elements that I'd done about four years ago!  I do love Mo's background images as you can create some wonderful scenic backgrounds.

The papers are Marrakech by Basic Grey and they so bright and summery. I've then used lots of co-ordinating Marianne dies, details below.

Beach Accessories - Parasol, Ball, Bucket, Ice Cream - COL1484
Deckchair - LR0719
Tag   Big/Little set - CR1353
