We're seeing "Spots & Dots" at Mo's!

Happy Thursday!! I'm back again with another post . . . gosh, after my several weeks' break, I've been busy, busy, busy catching up!! It's time for another new challenge over at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! And, this week, my sweet friend and fellow Design Teamie, Mau, is our hostess. And she'd like to see . . .

Spots & Dots!

Hehe! What a fun challenge theme, huh? OK, so, here's the deal . . . I had every intention of posting a new Valentine's Day card today except that last night we had SNOW once again! And, I gotta tell ya, for a Minnesota girl like me, snowfalls in Richmond, VA are pretty fun . . . and funny!! Everything closes down when it even LOOKS like there might be snow here! Here's a photo of the snow - shot from my studio window!
Pretty, isn't it? I think we maybe got 2-3 inches!! Soooooo . . . since I've been thinking a lot about snow, I decided to hold off on the Valentine's Day card and create something with snow!! What'cha think?
This darling Mo Manning image is called "Taste of Winter". . . . and is available HERE in Mo's online store. Have you ever caught snowflakes on your tongue? I have!! Here's a close-up . . . 
 This week I decided to make a "Crossover" card! These are always such fun to make . . . and so simple too!

My Card "Recipe" . . .
Cryogen Metallic White Cardstock
Chocolate Chip & Sky Blue cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: Snowfall Collection by Bo Bunny
Die: Joy Crafts
Liquid Applique for fur on coat
Sentiment Stamps & pearls: My stash
Shin Han & Copic markers; colored pencils

A peek at the inside card . . .

And . . . one last view . . .
Brrrrrrrr, huh?! OK . . . now it's your turn . . . but before you get craftin', first you'll want to head on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous projects created by Mau and the rest of my talented DT sisters! Then, please join us in this week's "Spots & Dots" challenge. It's easy . . . just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image and start creating!!

Oh, oh, 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! What an easy and fun way to get some new Mo images, right?!

And that's it for me! Maybe I'll go play in the snow . . . or shovel the sidewalk!! Thanks for stopping by . . . and, as always, for your kind comments. Stay warm!!

Pat, your card is gorgeous! Here is WI we are to get some snow today. I'm just glad we hit 20 yesterday instead of the -20 we had Monday and Tuesday. I did a winter card because I was tired of working on the Valentine card that my son wants me to make for his girlfriend. It is beyond "over the top".

Your card is absolutely gorgeous!
It's beautifully coloured and I love the fluffy stuff on the coat. What did you use to make that?
