THE Mo 'n' Zo Blog Hop!!!



Good morning...and welcome to THE hop of all HOPS!!! Two of the best designers (and their Design Teams) in the crafting world have come together for a hop full of fun...prizes...and inspiration!! They really don't get any better than this!! :)
For my card I have used the fabulous Circus Tent from Make It Crafty...and Jojo the clown from Mo's Digital Pencil x I've coloured the images with Copics, and made an acetate front which isn't that great to see, sorry x
This goes to show what a fabulous artist my dear friend Mo is...because I really DO NOT 'do' clowns...end of!!! But I'm starting to warm to this one :)
I hope you have a fabulous time hopping around to everyone...there are some added details below....

Clowns, Fairy floss, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day... Where are we?

THE CARNIVAL!!

Hopefully you have hopped across from my wonderful Mo Teamy DORCAS and as I am so lucky to be on both teams, here is where I link as the last person on Mo's team and the first of MIC x So...your next stop is over at the everso talented Make It Crafty 'BIG TOP BOSS' ... ZOE x

If you have just popped on by to say g’day and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to

START HERE at JAK

Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.

Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them. Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is!

There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!

Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thApril so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)

We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!




My balloon letter is ... I ....






As a special, Mo has designed this wonderful digi that is on sale for the absolute 'steal' of a price of $1 !!!! All donations will go to the Make A Wish children's charity and will be split between the US and UK x

xx Mo...you are an angel xx
