Oh and...nearly forgot to say that ... the fantastic Mr Dustin Pike is sponsoring us this week...and you have the chance of winning a digi image! Yay :)
Have fun, and have a great day...what ever you're doing xx

Scroll down a couple of posts to find the details and where to start :)

Well, back to today and another fab Mo's challenge! Dawn, has another great challenge for us this week, and it's... CAS! CAS stands for Clean And Simple -''White or Vanilla card stock, your image and 1 ribbon..NO layers''

Fab'n'Funky are 'Childish'!

Hi all...
I'm jolly late today with my DT card for Fab'n'Funky ...naughty corner for me I think!!! But fab was it to see the sunshine today, and even nicer to be able to take a photo with the sun shining through the windows!! Perhaps it was my bright 'spring' coloured card of yesterday that helped!! ^.^
Well...the theme for this weeks challenge at Fab'n'Funky is... Childish ! Some of the team have used the theme to celebrate the births of their Grandchildren...with Congrats going to Ginny, Andrea and Gilly (and their families of course ^.^) Bit early for us here yet...Kayleigh has just over two weeks to go!! Hmmm...said out loud two weeks is like....SOON!!! ^.^I have used another fantabulous image from the wonderful Mo and her Digital Pencil...'Bye Bye'! I have to add that I'm absolutely loving my Prismacolor pencils!!
I'm going to enter this into...

Mo is Hopping!!!!

Yippeeee!!! Today's the're not having a teddy bears picnic...we're having a Mo's Double Team Hop!!! Wooohooo!!!
A few days ago, Mo's PCP group had clocked up an amazing 1000 followers!!! As I type it's at 1053, so we'd better hurry up and get started on this celebration of 1000 before we are at 1100, and have to party again!!! ^.^
We are celebrating 6 whole months of life with Mo's images too, and what a 6 months it's been!
I feel so very proud and privileged to be part of Mo's team, she's a wonderful person, who not only graces us with her stunning images, but her time too. Thanks Mo for all you do...mwahh xx

My card and notebook have been made using Mo's image called 'Sorry Shanna'...a little lady close to my heart! Apparently, like Shanna, I used to pick all the flowers in my parents' garden when I was 2!! I say...apparently!!! ^.^Now, for this very special hop, Mo is being her usual generous and lovely self, and has some absolutely fantastic prizes up for grabs...including:
Mo's Digital stamps
Stampavie Mo's stamps
coffee cups, totes and teeshirts from Mo's Zazzle shop
and the grand prize of an original handmade art doll by Mo!
AND...if that wasn't enough...... each member of the team also has the download image that they've used on their project as a freebie for ONE lucky person too!! BUT...aha...a BUT you say... you do need to do a little bit of work along the way!!! On each team member's hop post you will find a letter! All you have to do is visit ALL of the team blogs and collect all of the letters...(not forgetting to leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning the image of that blog!) At the end you will need to go to PCP (Paper Craft Planet) to enter into the contest....SOOOOOOOO......lets get going!^.^

If you have arrived here from Lisa's yummy blog, then you're on the right track...and if you came in on a wander ( hello!! and welcome! ^.^ ) ...but would like to start at the beginning, you need to go back to Jak's wonderful blog...

From my blog you need to move onto the very talented Suzanne...taking with you of course... my letter ..... S .... .... Thank you very much for 'hopping' by...and GOOD LUCK!!! :0)

Wood You Be Mine?

Another yukky (techy term!) day's so dark I have the lights on!!! *.*
As it's's Mo's day!! Yip!! Our challenge this week was set by Dawn, and she chose...wood!!!'s far easier than you think! Dawn says..."Wood can be interpreted any way you like...A tree..the word Wood or Would...a faux wood paper, wood veneer...any of Mo's images that have a "wood" image..a wooden picture frame..Wood you be mine...Mo's snowman image has wooden arms...Pinocchio, hobby horse, wooden train images are just a few of her other creations that I can think of that have wood".
You see...Simples!! ^.^
I've used real wood veneer on mine...that's the main background, and I've also used it to make flowers. Going to the extreme...I've used my new Prismacolor pencils {made of wood!! ;) } too! ^.^ Don't look too closely though...this was my first attempt with them! :)
Exciting News!!
