Airplanes have WINGS, right?

Hap-hap-happy Thursday, my sweet friends!! Oooh . . . quick update on last week's card . . . Nana and her "baby" sister both LOVED the card!! I'm thrilled!! But, I gotta say . . . what's NOT to love about any card with a darling Mo Manning image?! Oh, and speaking of Mo Manning . . . it's that time again!! That's right . . . time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! This week's hostess with the mostess is my sweet friend and oh-so-talented DT sistah, Debbie! And Miz Debbie has decided she'd like to see some . . .

"Things with Wings!"

Hmmmmm . . . me thinks Debbie is longing for birds and bumblebees and butterflies! I decided that I'd go in a bit different direction! What'cha think?
What?! Airplanes have wings, don't they?! hehehe!! I just love this Mo Manning image . . . I always have!! And I decided that this would be perfect for our eldest granddaughter, Emma, who will soon be "promoted" from Junior High (8th grade) to High School! I can't believe it! It seems like just yesterday when I was rushing to the hospital to meet little Emma for the very first time!! Time sure flies, doesn't it? Here's a close-up of this cutie patootie . . . 
This image is called "Dream" and is available at Mo's online store as a girl HERE and as a boy HERE. I decided to make a pocket card this week . . . just looking to change it up a bit!!
I colored this sweetheart with Copics and Prismacolor pencils on Cryogen cardstock. And just used a cleverly cropped piece of the DPs for the inside card . . . with plenty of room for a "Congrats, Emma!" note!

 My Card "Recipe" . . .
Kraft paper, corrugated cardboard, & charm: My stash
DPs: "Portobello" by Reflections
Twill tape, sentiment & tab punch: Stampin' Up
Lace: The Ribbon Girl
Flowers Prima & Wild Orchid Crafts
Bronze corner: The Charm Store 24/7

Here's a look at the inside card . . . 
And one last, kinda "artsy" angle . . .
Fun, huh? Now . . . please pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous projects created by Debbie and the rest of my talented Design Teamies! Then, please join us for this week's challenge. It's simple . . .  just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image and let the crafting begin!!

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!

And that's it for me! I'm outa here! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit! Until next time . . .

Pat - This is a wonderful card. Your coloring is always gorgeous and the way you put all the elements together is fabulous! I agree that Mo's images are amazing. I've stopped counting how many I have, the new ones are always so wonderful I HAVE to have them!

Cathy said...

Hi Hun, glad I am not the only one who stretches the challenge themes, and of course planes have wings, or they would be rockets LOL. Love all of the special details of your gorgemous card, the lace, pins, corner bracket, ribbon, tab, rosette flower and roses, and the staples, which mine always look like a kindergartner got ahold of my card :) I really think that we were twins separated at birth, we love the same images, and techniques but sadly you got all the talent, I guess mom kept the right kid :) I still loves ya GF!!!

Franz♥ said...

Hi Paaaaat! Love, love, love your card: gorgeous papers and original layout, all is perfect for this cute Mo's image, that you coloured to perfection, as Always!

Hugs, Franz.
