Checking Facebook by Mo Manning

I have recently been posting cards using older images by Mo Manning. As a result I got challenged to do a comparison with one of my older cards. This image is called Checking Facebook and my original make was done back in 2010! 

It was lovely revisiting yet another older image and seeing how my work has changed. Simpler designs, less glued on flowers and more detailed colouring!

Maybe I'll revisit this one again in another 14 years 😉

Cupcake Princess Violet by Mo Manning

For today's card I'm using Mo Manning's Cupcake Princess Violet. This is another older image but she's just too gorgeous to not be used again. Don't you just love that flyaway hair!

Snow White by Mo Manning

I've had this image and the forest dies for some time but it only recently occurred to me how well they would work together! The image is Snow White by Mo Manning and the dies are from Memory Box.

I had a bit of a struggle finding the image in Mo's store and in the end she was hiding in the Retiring Images, and I have to say there are some AMAZING images in there that I will be sad to see go! Make sure you check them out before they disappear!

Happy by Mo Manning

It's a New Year and time to celebrate new beginnings. This gorgeous laughing baby is called Happy by Mo Manning. He can also come with curly hair if wanted and you can find that version here.

I just love his chubby little limbs and who can resist the innocent laughter of a bub.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy 2024

Santa Napping by Mo Manning

I know Christmas is over for another year but this image is just a fabulous one for AFTER Christmas too. I think Santa deserves his rest, as do many of us after the craziness of the season! I know I'm taking things a little easier this week ;)

The image is called Santa Napping. The side table with the lamp is a separate image that comes with Santa, along with his boots. It's fun to play with the different elements to create a little scene.

For the Tree by Mo Manning

With just a few days left before Christmas I decided to use Mo Manning's For the Tree for my card. It evokes memories for me of trimming the tree with my kids when they were younger. I miss those days!

Since this will be my last post before the BIG DAY I want to wish all my followers all the very best for the Season and nothing but good things for 2024.

Christmas Elves by Mo Manning

Today I'm playing with 2 of Mo's gorgeous little elves. Meet Little Elf Tippi (with the lights) and Little Elf Kippa (with the baubles). It looks like they're working together to trip the tree. The sentiment is included with Tippi when you purchase him.

I used a digi paper for the background, sadly this company is no longer in business, but I love the papers I bought in the past and tend to use them quite often.

When a Dwarf plays Santa

With Christmas coming it's always fun to see an image and re-imagine it. This is Mo Manning's Dwarf 6 and instead of seeing a dwarf with his ale tankard, I saw Santa at the end of a Hot Cocoa break.

I used Mo's gorgeous free digital paper Colourful Trees for the background to add to the festive spirit.

Gnome Christmas by Mo Manning

It's the first week of November when all things in my house begin focusing on Christmas. I have begun my Christmas shopping and of course, my Christmas crafting!

Today's card uses a mix of elements from 2 different image sets - Father Christmas Gnome Set and the Gnome Tree Set. Gotta love a Gnome ;)

Until Next Time
Happy Crafting

Rowena by Mo Manning

Since Halloween is just around the corner I decided to use Mo's cute witch Rowena for my card. We don't tend to celebrate Halloween as much here in Australia as they do elsewhere, but I like to play anyway.

I am currently enjoying patchwork and quilting again so decided to combine my 2 crafty loves by using an MFT quilt die for the background. The best part of these dies is you can use all of the pieces to create various versions for future cards :) 

The spiderweb corners and little spider are die cuts from La-La Land Crafts
