A Card for Mom

Hey, all!  Welcome back.  I usually don't do a Monday post, but I had a  card to share so I thought I would make an exception.  

A couple of weeks ago, I made a Mother's Day card for my mom and featured it on my blog as part of a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge, but I thought it would be better to make her something that she hadn't already seen.  I decided to use one of those sweet images from Penny Black penned by Mo Manning.  Each one is absolutely adorable and crazy fun to color.  This one is called You Are a Peach and I just love the expression on her face.  So full of delight.  Mo does an incredible job with these images. 

Not only are they fun to color, but they are on the large side too, so there's no need to fuss with the layout or a bunch of embellishments.  The image becomes the star of the show.  A couple of little details to make it more interesting, but that's about it.  You got to love that.  

The other reason I wanted to pop in today, was to mention that I will probably be thin on posts for the next couple of weeks.  We are in the final stages of packing up our townhouse this week and will do the big move over the long weekend.  WOO HOO!  We are in the last leg of this journey and couldn't be more thrilled.  Next time I load a post, it might just be from our new location.  Wish us luck ;D

Okay, that's it for now.  Until next time, stay crafty!

Would love to see you color up a Mo Manning image. Your mad skillz would make it sing!
