Mo Manning Rocks!

Been cruising around the web and visited Jak Heath's blog.  She does such amazing art work and many of her cards lately have had images from Mo Manning.  Her blog is Digital Pencil Too.  I decided to go and visit her blog, which led to her wonderful store, which lead to a purchase.  When I downloaded her wonderful digi images, I realized that I already had a couple images I had bought and a couple of freebies from her. (DUH!  can you image forgetting these great digis!)  : )

Anyway, I got to spend ALL DAY (yes, 10 am to midnight) playing with paper at a friends house on Saturday!  There was lots of coloring, cutting, pasteing, die cutting, drinking, eating and laughter going on FOR HOURS.  And it was good!  After the first time we had one of these play days, I learned to use repositional adhesive after my second or third Pineapple Rum Rita (as good as it sounds!).  That way and I straighten out everything I put on my projects as I don't seem to care about that as much after a couple of drinks!  Doh!

So, I spent about 13 hours at Danna's house playing with only Mo Manning images.  I will be posting all the cards that I did over the next couple of days.  (working 12s and don't have time to get them all posted at once, work, eat and SLEEP!  LOL)

Here is the start of my Mo Manning-athon!

This one is called "Sumpins Wrong".  There is definitely nothing wrong with this image!  I love this.  Can't tell you how many times my boys tried to put their clothes on the wrong way!

A bit of an angle to show the layers.

I printed this image 3 times and colored them with copics.  The based image is cut out with a
Spellbinder doing out of the box.  The last 2 images are fussy cut out and the layers are strategically placed with dimensionals.  The tickets are cut out with a Whimsey die and then stamped with Whimsey ticket sentiment stamps.  The border is also a Spellbinder edge die.
The pinwheel ribbon, DP, and brad are from my stash.....well.....the ribbon is from Danna's stash!
Shhhhhh..........don't tell her though!

Can't wait to come back and share my next card with you!
