TuTu Sweet!

Happy 2013, sweet friends!! Hope you all had a fabulous Holiday!! Ours was quite quiet . . . and, as always, Santa was very, VERY good to me!! I'm so spoiled! What can I say? hehe! Soooo, after a two-week break, it's time for the first challenge of the New Year over at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! And, since this is also the first challenge of the month, this week's theme is . . .

Anything Goes!

I do love "Anything Goes" challenges! hehe! Here's what I came up with . . .
So, here's the deal . . . our very dear friend, Max, has twin granddaughters who are having their 2nd birthday in just a few weeks, so I thought this would be perfect for them!! All pink and girly . . . using this adorable Mo Manning image called "Two Tutus". You can find this sweet little image HERE at Mo's online store. Here's a close-up of these little darlins . . . 
I decided to make a "shaker" card . . . which is easier than easy with these cool little shaker card pouches that I found from Impression Obsession called "Shake It". Here's a side view . . .
My Card "Recipe" . . .
Pretty in Pink cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs and metal corners: from my sweet friend, Paola, from S. Africa
Floral Ovals die: Spellbinders
Shake It Shaker Card Pouch: Impression Obsession
Inside sentiments, pearls, ribbon, and beads: My stash
Roses: Wild Orchid Crafts
Copic Sketch Markers
A peek at the inside . . .
And . . . one last photo, the "artistic" view . . .
So . . . now it's your turn . . . but before you get craftin', first you'll want to head on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous projects created by my talented DT sistahs! Then, please join us in this week's "Anything Goes" challenge. It's easy . . . just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image and start creating!!
Oh, oh, oh . . . and don't forget, Mo is awarding (selected at random) one $5.00 shopping spree at her online store for every 25 challenge participants! What an easy and fun way to get some new Mo images, right?!

Alrighty then . . . that's it for me! Thank you so much for stopping by . . . and, as always, for your kind comments. Warm hugs . . . until next time.

Hey sweetie! Happy New Year to you too darlin'!
Wow, what can I say! First thing that comes to my mind is that your good friend Max's granddaughters will definitely fight upon this card, if not now in a few years for sure...hehe. I'm guessing you should come up with a duplicate each
