It's March . . . soooo, Anything Goes at Mo's

Welcome to March, my sweet friends!! I have one teensy question for you . . . "Where on earth did February go?" Well . . . one good thing is that Spring is just around the corner . . . right? Maybe? Yesterday I woke up to snowwwwwwwwwww here in Richmond, VA!! You know, that heavy wet stuff that sticks to the trees and is simply gorgeous . . . and that will be gone by the weekend when the temperatures warm up. But, for now, I'm sort of loving it! Here's a pic taken of my "back yard" . . .
Now . . . back to my card!! Since today is the first Thursday of the month, our challenge theme at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog is . . .

Anything Goes!

And here's my DT contribution for this week's challenge . . . 
Today's card is for one of my sister's friends who, as luck would have it, is getting ready to deliver a baby boy!! I actually colored this sweet Mo image with Distress Inks!! It takes me 10 times longer than coloring with Copics . . . but I'm blaming that on the "learning curve"! Here's a close-up of this sweetheart . . . 
This precious image is called "Baby and Bunny" and you can find it HERE in Mo's online store. Here's a side view . . .

Then, please join us for 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!!

This is one of my top faves of yours Pat. The coloring, especially your shading is so beautifully balanced. Perfect shading and the softness of the distress inks just adds so much. Gorgeous die cut corner too. Hugs!
