Exercise

The challenge this week over at Less is More is Sport or Exercise - quite apt really after Christmas Pud and choccie!

I found some time last night to make this card - I'd already made up my mind that I wanted to use this Mo Manning image because as with most of the things that come from the pencil's of Mo, they make you feel happy - (bit of a theme going on here - can you guess I've been feeling less than cheerful of late as all I seem to be doing is wanting to make 'happy' things?).

Enough ramblings - the 'one layer' theme although I've become a teeny bit more proficient at still makes me apprehensive but am happy to say I managed to position, print and colour without any mishaps!

I coloured Mummu with a mixture of promarkers and watercolour pastels.

The sentiment was originally from TLC and I really wanted to use it but had to change the fonts because the original didn't sit quite right. 

I finished it off with some polka dot green ribbon - I treated myself to lots of spotty and gingham ribbons before Christmas for Christmas cards etc - and this is the first one I used....now in January!!!

Other challenges -
Hotshot Craft - Clean and Simple
Card makin Mamas - Anything Goes
Card Crafters Circle - Summer
Glitter n Sparkle - Use a Digi

It's very cold and frosty here today - perfect excuse for not moving from the craftie space! Enjoy your day and thanks for coming to see me today! x

  19. Hi Viv, Thanks for visiting my blog, and signing on as a follower. I was able to follow the link back to your lovely blog, and joined you! What fun. I love this Mo M image. I have it on my desk, but it's as yet uninked. You did a fantastic coloring & shading on this. I don't know from Nada about Promarkers or w/c pastels. I've bought some of the pan pastels, not used yet. Looking forward to cruising your blog and getting some wonderful inspiration. See ya soon.
