"Amanda" Challenge at Mo's

Happy Thursday, y'all! It's time for another challenge over at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! This fortnight's challenge is a little different . . . and really special. Our sweet and crazy talented DT sister Amanda Reed passed away quite unexpectedly a few weeks ago . . . she was in her 40's. Amanda was taken from us too soon . . . and, while she is gone, she is definitely not forgotten!!
As a tribute to our dear friend, this fortnight's challenge at Mo's is dedicated to the memory of Amanda Reed! And because Amanda loved cats . . . and because we all loved Amanda . . . Mo Manning has created a very special image called "Amanda" . . . so this fortnight's challenge theme will be . . .
(Must usethe new "Amanda" image)

The new "Amanda" image is available now in Mo's online store . . . and will be available at a reduced price ($1.00) through October 16th. Mo is then donating all proceeds in Amanda's name to "Animal Friends" (an animal shelter near where Amanda lived). We hope you'll help us honor Amanda's memory . . . pick up this darling image . . . support a good cause . . . and join us for this fortnight's very special challenge!

Here's my "Amanda" creation . . .
I "borrowed" this cute card design from my friend, Dena. You can see her adorable card HERE. I thought I'd give it a try . . . easy peasy! And here's a close-up of this cute little "Amanda". . .
A side-ish view . . .
And would'ja just look at that stitching! hehe! My first time ever using my sewing machine! Great big THANKS to my sweet sister, Dee, who showed me how to thread it when she was here visiting last week! (I wonder if she'll come back when the thread runs out! hehe!) And another view . . .
