"Around the World" with Mo Manning!

Hi blogging buddies!! Are you ready for another really fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog?!! I know I am!! I really need an excuse to play with these adorable images! hehehe!! Elaine, one of the very talented DT gals, is our host again this week...and she's challenged us to use "Around the World" as our theme!! Well, as you can imagine, my biggest challenge was deciding which of Mo's images to choose!!

Now...a quick aside here, remember last week when I made the simple little, mostly white card for our sweet Emma? That could very well have been one of the toughest cards I've ever made! This week I threw simplicity out the window and went with a "more is better" approach! good to have my mojo back!! Here's my card...featuring "Fan's Cricket" available here at Mo's Digital Pencil online store.

I must admit, this DP seemed perfect...although I can't tell you where it came from...other than to say it was at the bottom of my plastic storage bin under my futon!! LOL!!

And while I was rummaging around in my craftroom, I unearthed a very cool set of Stampin' Up stamps called "Asian Artistry". The Confucius quote is "Wherever you go, go with all your heart." I love it...words to live by!

And here's a little more info about my card...
Cardstock: Blushing Bride (Stampin Up)
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Scrolls: Sizzix Dies
Corner cutout: Cuttlebug
Butterfly: MS punch
Ribbon: stash
Copic sketch markers...sorry, I didn't jot down the markers I used
And, keeping with the whole "ethnic theme", the pearls are from Mikimoto!! (Just tricking!!) <--- That's what our youngest granddaughter, Mia, says when she's been caught fibbing!! LOL!! So, there you go, my lovelies! Another fun week at Mo's!! Now...pop on over the Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog here and take a gander at the gorgeous artwork created by my fellow DT pals! Then...pull out your supplies and get crafting! Be sure to use at least one Mo Manning image...and come up with a project that exemplifies Elaine's "Around the World" theme!! Don't forget to enter your project in this week's Challenge # 66! We're anxious to see what you come up with!

Oh...and one more teensy thing...I'm going on a bit of a holiday...without internet I'll check out your fabby creations when I get home. I promise to have a Pina Colada for you while I'm gone!! Yep...I'm quite the sacrificer, aren't I?!! hehehe! Until next time, sweet friends!
