Something suh-weet!

Hi suh-weet friends...thanks so much for stopping by for a visit! This week at Mo's Challenge Blog, our uber talented DT sistah, Elaine, is our hostess again...and she's decided that we should use the theme:

Something sweet (as in "food-related") fun is that?? Plus, as you well know, Mo has about a kabillion images that fit this theme perfectly!!! So...I chose this little Watermelon Girl...have you ever seen such a cute image? ! (I know, I say that about ALL of Mo's images! LOL!) I couldn't wait to color this cutie patootie...and decided that she'd be perfect for this week's challenge at Mo's!!

My sweet and oh so talented friend and DT sistah, Debbie Lanci, made a "criss-cross pocket card" a while back and I decided it was time for me to break out of my comfort zone and try something new. So...that's just what I did! I used Wild Wasabi cardstock from Stampin' Up...and these delicious DPs from...uh oh...I have no idea who makes these DPs. They're from a pad of DPs and, when I saw them weeks and weeks ago, I pulled them out and set them aside for this little image. And, now I haven't a clue who makes them! Sorry about that! ugh!! I do remember that the peachy pink cardstock is from DCWV's Pastel Pack. Here's a close-up of this adorable little Watermelon Girl.

 I used the following Copics:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000
Cheeks: R20
Hair: E19, 15, 11, 23, YR21, 20
Watermelon: G28, 24, 21, 40 (I lost my G20...ugh!) and YG11
Peachy-pink: R20, 01, 00, RV10, 000
White dress: C1 & 000
Shadow: W1, 00

Look at that, I just slipped in the "artsy" pic without warning you! Were you so surprised?! hehehe!'s another one for good measure...

And here's a photo of the card with the inside popped out a bit so you can see it. This is such a fun sentiment for this challenge, don'tcha think? I found it at Stamping Bella!! The scroll thingie around the sentiment is a stamp from Stampin' Up (it's called "Elizabeth")...the ink is Wild Wasabi. These gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts...the leaves are from Marianne Createables...and that little clip and ribbon are from my stash. Ooohhh...almost forgot...the lace edging is made with  Doohickey die from Magnolia.

So that's it for me, kids. Be sure you stop by Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog and take a peek at what Elaine and the rest of my talented Teamies have created to inspire you. Then get crackin' on your own little masterpiece using one (or more) Mo Manning image (you can find lots and lots of fun images at Mo's online store HERE and HERE). Remember to follow Elaine's fun theme: Something Sweet (don't has to be food related!). One lucky participant (chosen at random) will win her choice of one of Mo's digi images! And that lucky person could be YOU!! Whooohooo!

Thank you so much for stopping by...and a special thanks for your kind comments. They really do make my day. Sending hugs...until next time...
