Fancy Folds at Mo's!

Hey there, my sweet friends! Well...I'm back from visiting the kids and grandkiddos in AZ...and let me tell ya, I'm still exhausted!! hehehe!! But not too exhausted! In fact, I'm pretty jazzed about this week's challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! Why? Well...your hostess for this week's challenge is none other than yours truly! hehehe! And I've chosen as our challenge theme...

Fancy Folds

So, since I'm well into my Christmas card-making-mode, I selected this adorable little Mo Manning image called "Noelle Bearing Gifts"... you can find her HERE at Mo's online store. My clever DT sistah, Sheila, taught me how to print my images a bit lighter, giving a "watercolor" effect...which, I am really liking alot! Thanks Sheila, you da bomb, girlfriend!

As you can see, my "fancy fold" is actually a "Criss Cross" card! I think it qualifies as a "fancy fold"...hey, wait a minute...I'm hostess this week...and I say it qualifies! hehehe!!

Here's my card "recipe"...
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink & Baja Breeze (Stampin' Up)
DPs: My Mind's Eye "Wonderful Winter"
Rick-rack & brad: my stash
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Nestabilities dies: oval & scalloped oval
Punches: Martha Stewart
Liquid Applique
Polar White Flower Soft
Copics & Prismacolor pencils (too numerous to mention)

Okey's time for you to head on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE so you can check out the gorgeous projects by my talented DT sisters! Then, we'd love for you to make your own Mo Manning challenge project and join the fun!! Just remember to use one (or more) of Mo Manning's images (you can find them in Mo's online stores HERE and HERE)! One lucky participant (chosen at random, of course) will receive a $5.00 shopping spree at Mo's online store.

And...that's it for me. Thanks so much for stopping by...and for leaving such kind comments! Big hugs...until next time....

Hey darlin' Now, that was a funny post:) But since it's 1 in the morning I can't afford laughing out loud:) That's a good one: "I think it qualifies as a "fancy fold"...hey, wait a minute...I'm hostess this week...and I say it qualifies! hehehe!!" This is the Pat who's definitely having a very good time at the mom:) Shame on me, I didn't know you were the hostess; I should check the challenge folder more often. I'm a bad, bad frind and DT sis':( But the theme is fantastic and you did a gorgeous card here which I've been admiring ever since you dropped it in the folder. You and Sheila had fantastic ideas to color the images lighter; love the effect, looks like watercolor indeed; still, don't think I'm ready to try this. Sometimes the faces look strange but this is one I really really love how it turned out:) Gorgeous shape and colors; a really adorable festive card!
Keep on having a good time in Vegas sweetie; you surely deserve spoiling yourself. Just keep us informed of all those celebrities...young or old... you get in touch with, erm, I mean, you see around lol.

Oops! I thought Cathy was the hostess...have to go edit my blog! Anyway, your card is lovely, as usual! I love the effect with the lighter image.
