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?


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


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

Mo Challenge # 78

Morning all x
It's that means it's Mo's Challenge Day! This week our fabulous teamy Dorcus, has set us all the theme of 'Start of Something New' as a challenge. That could fact anything that is a new beginning x
A new life is always such a wonderful and precious thing, and the new little angel that's arrived is the Granddaughter of my dear friend Kathy, who we sadly lost on the 2nd April...just days before the arrival of baby Elizabeth x
I met Kathy about 6 years ago on Craft Swap Forum. I was new to all this 'chatting' lark back then (yes...hard to believe, I know! ) and forums etc were scary hear all the horror stories of chatting to strangers on the net etc! Well, I have to say that I made some of the best friends of my life on there...and continue to make more as I travel in 'blogland' x
I've met a number of them several times at 'get togethers' and craft shows etc..and are just THE best xx ...Which reminds me...Lesley...get that choccy cake in the oven...I'm on my way!! :) x
Never underestimate friendships born from the net...the crafting community has a lot of very special people...and I'm so proud to be part of it x
Baby Elizabeth will of course have her very own Guardian Angel...Kathy will always be a special part of her life x

I have used one of the gorgeous images from the 'Diaper Crew' collection from Mo, and coloured 'her' with Copics. I made the bead pin myself and added a cross charm. The 'Love Hearts' embossing folder is by Crafts Too and available from Dragonfly are Copics and the punches which I've used to make the flowers and leaves x

Grab a cuppa and nip across to the Challenge will just LOVE the cards that my wonderfully talented team mates have created x

Mo Challenge # 77

Good Thursday morning to you. Doesn't it make such a difference to get up with the sun shining brightly? Just going to say a quick 'Happy Birthday' to my Emily, who has got to the ripe old age of sweet 16 today xx
With that in mind, this week's theme at Mo's Challenge is 'How does your garden grow' ... so anything garden inspired will work :)
I've used the gorgeous little 'Waiting for Rain' image from Mo. Well, we do need rain for our gardens, but if it could just keep to raining overnight that would be great :)
Don't forget to give the other DT girls a visit, because I know that they have wonderful things to show always xx

Just Inklined To Hop!!

Morning :)
It's the first Monday of the month, so it's Just Inklined blog hop day!! It's the fourth one this year, which means there are only another 8 to go before Christmas!!! Eeek!! Now there's a scary thought!! lol

Anyway, here we are in April and our theme this month has been set by Jeni, (which is where the hop starts) and it's 'Bring in Spring' anything with a touch of Spring to it is good :)

I've gone a bit mad and made a 'Spring' card...quite literally...and used the gorgeous 'We're Hungry' image available from La Pashe. It's been coloured using my trusty Copics.

I just know that the girls will 'WoW' you with their creations so be sure not to miss any x

If you arrived here from the lovely Heidy's blog ... then you're on the right track, and you can hop off on your way to the wonderful Joyce and see what fabulous spring thing she has to show you xx Thanks for stopping by, and if you get lost, here is the direction to hop in...have fun!! x

Jeni, Jak, Debbie, Toni, Meesh, Karen, Cathy, Heidy, Lydia - You are HERE! :) Joyce
