Dear Santa...I can explain!

Please scroll down to see my latest
Sugar Bowl project!

Hi again, my darlins!'s time for another fabulous challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! And...I do believe that I am your hostess again this week! I was thinking that, now that my trees are almost naked, it may be time to start thinking about winter!! So...this weeks theme at Mo's is...


I went with "Christmas & Santa" instead of snowwww (I just can't handle snow yet!! hehe!) and chose this absolutely adorable little Mo Manning image called "Guilty May"... although Mo could have named her "Guilty Mia"...because this cutie looks so much like our youngest granddaughter, Mia Laren! (You may recall, Mia is the one who thinks you magically get a boyfriend AND a new car for your 16th birthday!) Well...our sweet little Mia is frequently in trouble for one thing or another! I must admit...that child just tickles me! hehehe!!'s my little card...

You can find "Guilty May" HERE at Mo's online store.

Here's my card "recipe"...
Cardstock: Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up)
DPs: My Mind's Eye's Lost & Found "Christmas" collection
Sentiment: Printworks Collection & postmark: Paper Inspirations (both from Hobby Lobby)
Lace: Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls: my stash
Glossy accents for her shoes
Copics & Prismacolor pencils

Here's a peek at the inside...which I kept very, very's just DP w/one stamped postmark!

And one more photo.... it's time for you to pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE so you can check out the gorgeous projects by my talented DT sistahs!! Then, please join the fun by making and entering your own Mo Manning challenge project! Just remember to use one (or more) of Mo Manning's images (you can find them in Mo's online stores HERE and HERE)...and follow this week's theme: WINTER! Who knows, you may be chosen (by that Random.Org thingie) to receive a $5.00 shopping spree at Mo's online store.

Oh...I almost forgot...I'm entering this card into the following challenge:
Paper Sundaes - Digital images
And...there ya go! Thanks a bunch for stopping by to visit...and thanks, too, for your sweet comments! Big hugs...until next time....

This is just adorable Pat, Love your colour choice and the image is wonderful, I think thats a must on my list. Don't our Grandchildren amuse When my youngest daughter had her own Daughter, I couldn't help but laugh and say "What goes around..Comes around" She was a gem really but it doesn't pay to say that too often. xx
