My favorite Mo card challenge

Hi everyone! This is a quick post for me today but wanted to show you "My favorite Mo card of 2013" for our challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil challenge for the next week.

This image is called Make a Wish and I just love the white and black with a pop of color. I also used my silhouette on it which doesn't get pulled out nearly enough.

I'm sorry I don't have my copic colors listed for this image but the papers are by Papertrey Ink. I know that much!

Alright, I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday and we will talk to you in the New Year!

It's time for NEW STUFF!!! Haha!! We're kicking off the December Kraftin Kimmie stamps Release with our brand NEW December Krafty Kardmaking Kit!!
The goodies in this month's kit will blow you away....we promise!!! Do you live far away from the nearest Krafty store?? Is it hard to choose all your krafty goodies online without seeing them in person?? Or do you ever feel like you’re running out of krafty mojo?? Need a little help putting things together to make a fabulous card?? Or maybe you don’t have the time to design something yourself and want to just be able to put things together quickly! Well, we’ve taken out all the guess work for you and designed a Krafty Kardmaking Kit with everything you need to make SIX awesome cards AND have some goodies leftover to whip up some extras!
Additionally, our Krafty Girl design team has taken ONLY what's found in this kit (plus their own white cardstock, ink and colouring medium) and created SIX amazing card samples for you (you'll get to see them all as you hop around the links at the bottom of this post)!!! And with this kit you'll receive a gorgeous colour handout, emailed directly to you, featuring pictures of the six cards PLUS some extras and the sketches to go with each creation!! It couldn't be any easier!!
Your Krafty Kit will be shipped in a sturdy box so that your goodies are nice and safe!! The VALUE of each kit is over $32 but our price this month is $25!! Shipping in Canada and the US is $12 PLUS when you order the kit, we are offering FREE additional shipping on anything else in the shop that you order at the same time! So go ahead and load up with paper pads, ezmount, more stamps etc. because the shipping is covered! All your goodies will be shipped together in a box for only $12. (International customers please email me directly to go over your options for the kits!)
I have used the cute Pippa Popcorn on my card today, she is one of the stamps you could choose if you order the kit this month. I did add some liquid pearls to the edge of my cardstock but otherwise all of my elements are from the December Krafty Kardmaking Kit. Even the twine that I twirled into a lollipop! I frantaged the heck out of the edges, just thought it added to the exploding popcorn look lol!

Oh WAIT!!! There is an extra special blog post along the hop by one of our fabulous Krafty Girls and it includes a VIDEO!!! She's sharing everything what she received in this month's kit and ALL the amazing things she created with JUST the one kit!!!!

"I" is for...

Good morning crafty peeps! Today we have another fun challenge for Mo's DP Challenge blog and for the next week we would like to see you use something that starts with the letter "I" for your inspiration. It could be icy, illness, inspire or anything that catches your fancy but starts with an "I".

Today I have used Winter Fairy Halla on my card and am going with an "icy" feel with the blue and white theme.

Although you can't see it she has some sparkle on her leg warmers from a glitter pen and on the steam from her breath. Nice little touch irl. I have also layered three different snowflakes for an accent and have used a touch of frantage on two of them. I have also cut one out of clear plastic and added some chunky glitter on it so it was a little more subtle. Papers are Bo Bunny "Snowfall" from a couple of years ago.

Alright, whip out those papers and your Mo image and show us an awesome creation cause we love to see them! Plus Mo has just released several new images so if your card is the randomly chosen winner you could get some of them to play with!

Celebration time at Oozak!

Hi everyone! Today I am posting a card for the Oozak challenge blog and our theme for the next two weeks is "Celebration"! Well, this worked out well for me as a co-worker requested a simple engagement card from me so I was able to kill two birds with one stone. That really isn't a very nice saying if you think about it though haha!

This is pretty simple for me and no copics!

Okay, time for you to play along and enter for your chance to win a great prize from Oozak too!
