Valerie & Snowman . . .

Hey there, m'darlins!! Happy November!! In case you needed a reminder . . . Christmas is NEXT MONTH!! Ho ho ho!! So, I'll be concentrating on making "Holiday" and winter cards for the next several weeks, me thinks! Oh, hey . . . it's time for another cool challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week's theme is . . .

"Anything Goes!"
w/a Mo Manning image, of course!

OK . . . so, here's the deal . . . I just got home a couple of days ago after spending a week in Arizona with my three fabulous kids and our six super-de-duper cool grandkiddos!! Here are a couple of pics . . .
Youngest grand-cutie, 17 month old Isla Bleu, loves ice cream as much as her Gramma Pat!! She's going at it with both hands!! LOL!

And here are all six of our sweethearts in their "trick-or-treat" costumes. From left to right front row: Brody (Superman), Mia (50's girl), and Sophia (Panda Bear); and back row: Ava (a very gorgeous mummy!), Isla (kitty), and our oldest, Emma (devil).

Well . . .  as you can imagine, crafting was moved to the back burner for a few days!! But . . . I did have time to make this cute little Christmas ornament . . .
I  used one of Mo's newest images called "Valerie in Winter." You can find her, along with two other "Valerie" images, right HERE in Mo's online store!
Isn't little Valerie just adorable! And she was super fun and easy to color!! Now . . . it's time for you to pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog and check out the fabulous  projects created by my sweet and very talented Design Teamies! Then, please join us for this week's challenge. It's simple, really, 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!

Thanks so much for visiting! Hugs . . .
