Peggy by Mo Manning

This sweet little image is called Peggy by Mo Manning. She comes with 3 sentiments which go well with her Little Miss Innocent look - "If all else fails, ask Grandma / Grandpa / Dad". I decided to colour in the white cut border around the image in black to make her pop a little more.

I used an AALL & Create background stamp and added some colour to tie it in with the image. I finished it off with some dewdrop gems - there are a few covering the pink spots in the stamped background but this hasn't photographed well. They look amazing IRL though. All in all a simple card, but I am very happy with it.

Danica by Mo Manning

This gorgeous image is called Danica. I've seen her coloured up in lots of different ways and she never fails to look amazing. My choice was to create a sequined party dress for her. I love the cool blues against the black. She's definitely ready to celebrate a special occasion.

Baby Girl-s by Mo Manning

By request from my daughter who has friends who are at that stage of having babies - meaning I need to replenish my stash of baby cards. This gorgeous little girl is called Baby Girl-s by Mo Manning.

For this card I layered up a lot of digital elements and then overlaid the image onto to them to make a single layered topper. This means the finished card will be much cheaper to post, something we need to think about these days with postage prices going up again!

Love and Comfort by Mo Manning

This beautiful image is called Love and Comfort and you can find her instore HERE. She really stands on her own without the need for a lot of embellishment. I hope you love her as much as I do.

Merry Mousemas by Mo Manning

When I saw this little cutie I knew I couldn't wait for Christmas to have him singing carols. After all, we do sing 'Happy Birthday" too! I love that he's a year round option.

This lil guy is Merry Mousemas and he does come with a bonus digi paper, although given it was Christmas themed, I didn't use it here.

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
