"Warm and Cozy" at Mo's...and a change that should make you smile!!

Well talk about a great response this past fortnight for the "Anything Goes" Challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog. It was a blast going through all of the entries we had.. but also made our decisions so much harder... but such a great start to a new year!

Going along with that, this year is going to be SUPER SPECIAL with some pretty exciting changes along the way!! more about most of them later on, but the first change to come about is that ALL the Challenges over at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog will now be ANYTHING GOES!!! with and OPTIONAL THEME!!! This way, as long as you have one of Mo's GORGEOUS images on the card, you can enter... but if you want to challenge yourself a little bit more, you can play along with us and work along with the theme!! How's that for cool!! So no EXCUSES!!! I expect to see you enter!! *gives you a stern playful look, waggling my finger at you...with a cheeky grin!!* 

This fortnights OPTIONAL new theme "Warm & Cozy" was chosen by one of our newest members to our wonderful team of talented DT Members, Ms Daria Myagkikh! :) Now this theme can be interpreted so many different ways, so I think it's a wonderful open theme to have as you will see by all the different cards and ideas the different DT ladies have done for our designs. 

For myself, I thought a little outside the box. I was unwell when I was choosing how I was going to do this card. I had a shocking migraine, and my little dog Alora was curled up on me or near me for most of the day, and so she was my inspiration. I mean what is warmer and COSIER then the LOVE from your dog!!! especially when you are unwell, or in need of company. 

I think the merge I have done with Mo Mannings digital stamps "Empty Chair" and "Davy and Duke"  has demonstrated this quite well. Well I hope it does!!! :/ By showing a great big empty chair that is available, but despite that, the child (Davy) STILL chooses to sit ON his dog (Duke) to play with his computer game. :) I mean that just the kind of thing kids do right!!... LOL... 

All of the papers and embellishments were from a digital collection by Nitwits Collections called "FQB Tail Wags" The ribbon and bow and the paw print are all made from cardstock!! How cool is that!!. They have been shaped and elevated with dimensional (foam dotty thing with sticky backs)

Well I hope you enjoy my card. :) 

Well that's it from me for this fortnight!

So happy you pop over . Look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations for this weeks ANYTHING GOES!!! with the optional WARM AND COZY theme over at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog!!

Happy crafting!!

Anything Goes And A SALE AT MO'S!!! LOL

Ever so sorry for this late blog post.. But when you are on holidays camping,in the middle of the bush, relying on a caravan parks guest wifi, and a gigantic lighting storm with flash flooding decided to hit overnight, well... as you can imagine... NO Internet!!!.. and NO blogging!! and LOTS OF WATER... INSIDE MY TENT!!!! :/ lol.. we got just a little bit wet, but after many years of camping each year at this glorious place that is Daylesford, and knowing the weather patterns intimately, we were prepared... so it wasn't as bad as it could be... now just to get the mud out of the bottom of parts of the tent... hmmmm. that's always fun!! ohhhhh the joys of camping. :) 

Now onto the fabulous news. I'm a bit late with sharing this sorry, due to being away and not getting the info, but currently over at Mo's Digital Pencil, Mo has a Winter Sale running through to Sunday 11th of January. You can get 20% of your order by using the code "BIGCHILL". How that for wonderful!! and even better there is a range of brand new stamps that Mo has added to the store this past week so make sure you pop in and have a look. :)


After you have purchased your new gorgeous stamps from Mo's, you'll probably be wondering what to do with it.. well it just so happens that this fortnights Challenge over at Mo's Digital Challenge Blog is "Anything Goes in 2015 "!!. A Nice and simple theme to start off the new year and get you back into the swing of things. Up for grabs for the winner is a $5 voucher to spend at Mo's Online Shop. So make sure you enter in your beautiful cards/projects with a Mo's image on it of course! :) to have a chance to win!!. 

This fortnight being away camping I was extremely limited with what I could achieve so I thought for my card, I would finish off one last Christmas card I had half completed for the Kraft Challenge at the end of last year that I unfortunately had to withdrawn from at last minute from being unwell...
Seeing I had dragged ALL of my Copics camping with me (yes.. i taken them all... and all of my inks, and rubber stamps, and a pile of other crafting things!! LOL)  it seemed the perfect idea to do for the "Anything Goes" challenge. 

So here is the very last!! or very first!! ;) Christmas card for the year!!...
This Super Silly Little Elf is one of the "North Pole Employees #5533 and #3355" digi set. This is "North Pole Employee #5533".  This set is extremely versatile as they can be used together or separately, and are simple enough to be used as a small digi, or enlarged with your computer to make them a focal point.  

So I didn't write down my colours choices this time guys. Sorry. Just had a play... so I will leave this post quite short and get back to cleaning up my flooded tent site. :) 
Make sure you stop by Mo's Digital Pencil to make use of the 20% off Winter Sale while you still can... it all ends Sunday the 11th!!! so get in there quick!! and I look forward to viewing all your beautiful cards you submit for this fortnights challenge over at Mo's Digital Challenge Blog

Thanks for popping by. Last year was so wonderful for me... and I cannot wait to see what this year brings!!! :)
Happy crafting guys!! Xo
