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!
