"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!!
