Mo Manning's Challenge - December 2016

Well here we are in December and on the countdown to Christmas! 

With so much to do I made a quick and simple card for this month's sample using A Little Birdie Told Me from Mo's Digital Shop.


Simple, but I thought reflective of the season and sometimes sad times we live in, truly wishing for peace on earth.

More samples are on my teamies blogs, take a look in the sidebar to see them all and pop over to Mo's DP2 Challenge to have a go and maybe win a prize to spend in her store! There were some fabulous entries last month and the theme stays as 'Anything Goes' with a Mo image. So much inspiration and don't forget to check out my page Ellie's Cupboard on Facebook and the galleries on Pinterest.

Craft Fun with Hobbyart



Huge thank you to Jenny Mayes of Hobbyart for a lovely day crafting with her at the All Counties Challenge retreat this weekend in Godalming..

These are the projects we did, love them all but my favourite has to be the little printers tray with four scenes on. Great tips on using the Kuretake pens to colour and blend with. So lucky that because Jenny was local to the area we were a small group and Jenny was able to give individual attention to each of us - priceless!

Fabulous weekend for everyone there who had the choice of working with some other wonderful crafters including John Bloodworth, Leonie Punjol, Sarah Millsop from Beaders Direct, Paula Pascal from Tonic and Dean Wilson who gave their time to support John's chosen charity Mind. Met some lovely people all there to have fun and learn - if you get a chance to go to one of John's events then I would highly recommend it !

Mo Manning Challenge November 2016

Yay! Christmas is coming so I'm busy with some tags at the moment...........


I needed something quick and easy so the backgrounds are simply heat embossed with white embossing powder and then ink blended with some Distress Inks.

Mo's images Toyshop Helper and Corgi and Bess were coloured with my Copics, cut out and stuck on with foam pads. I so love the oversized Christmas jumper on Bess and that little helper is just too adorable !

Got a few more to make so have made all the backgrounds up just need to do some more images and there are so many gorgeous ones to pick from in Mo's Shop ! Don't forget it's the start of Mo's new DP2 Challenge today so pop over and take a look you'll see some fab inspiration from everyone on the team to wet your appetite and then have a go!

Thanks for looking and have fun x

Mo Manning Challenge October 2016

Good morning all, hope you're well. The weather doesn't seem to be able to make up it's mind here in the UK but autumn keeps popping it's head in.

 Mo's new DP2 Challenge starts today with the theme Anything Goes (with a Mo Image), here's my design using an image called Skateboard Schoolboy, especially picked for my grandson Harvey whose birthday was last weekend. Seemed to suit him down to a T especially as we got him a skateboard as a present.



No fuss or frills - after all he was 13 so really wouldn't have appreciated that would he ! Simple CAS design with the image coloured with Copics and a few die cuts to personalise it.

Thanks for popping by, there is plenty of inspiration from my team mates listed on the right so I hope you'll take a look and then why not join in the Challenge - you never know you could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend in Mo's Digital Shop!
