Spring Blog Hop at Mo's

Happy Thursday, my sweet friends!! I'm so excited because today we're having our regularly scheduled Challenge over at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog . . . our Theme this week is . . .
 
SPRING!
 
PLUS, we're having a super-de-duper fantabulous Spring Blog Hop!! Read on for more info . . .
 
Spring_blog_hop

The Dream Team and the Challenge Team for Mo’s Digital Pencil have joined forces to bring you a spectacular Blog Hop with 6 brand new images being released today.

Not only that, but we have a hidden discount code in flowers on some of the blogs so make sure you start at the very beginning of the Blog Hop and jot them down in order and you will get a whopping 25% discount when you apply the code to Mo's online store!

Okey dokey, my lovelies . . . you've been patient long enough!! Let's get crackin', shall we? Here's my card . . . using the very precious, albeit a little dirty, "In the Spring" . . .
Isn't she just as cute as she can be? I merged (yes, I figured out how to merge . . . finally! hehe!) the sentiment (which comes with the image when you purchase this sweetheart!) I used Graphic 45 "My Secret Garden" DPs . . . and colored the image with Copics and various colored pencils. I should point out that I got the idea to smudge "dirt" here and there from my sweet and very clever DT sister, Cathy!! Thanks girlfriend! You rock!

Here's a bit of an "artsy" view . . .

Here's a peek at all 6 of the new images
Spring_with_Mo_names
In addition to collecting the flower codes for a 25% discount, you can also win the chance to receive a $5 gift voucher for Mo’s shop . . . we have 4 to give away as spot prizes from the comments left on our blogs! So remember to leave some love in the way of a comment on each blog you hop to.

The blog hop order is as follows . . .  
Pat, Alice, Anja, Kerttu, Cathy, Debby, Elaine, Gretha, Debbie L, Heidy, Franz, Jane, Iulia, Julie, Kat, Mina, Kim, Tine, Pops, Tracy, Jak

Here's your first flower. You'll want to collect a total of 6 flowers on your "Blog Hop" travels. Some have numbers or letters...and some say "Try next Blog". Once you've collected all 6 flowers in order, they will spell a code that you can use to get 25% off your order at Mo’s Digital Pencil shop!

Thanks so much for "hopping" by!! Your next stop along the way is the very talented Alice! Enjoy!
