Mo's challenge #191

Fun in the Sun! (NOT!)

I know this doesn't seem to fit the theme for Mo's Challenge this week, but hear me out. I work with 12 and 13 year old kids, and towards the end of school I asked them what they would be doing during their summer vacation. Almost all the boys said they would be playing video games during their time off!
 No "Fun in the Sun" for them, I guess! 
I love the 'glazed over' look on his face! If you have gamers in your family, you know that look well!
I colored the image first, then found this perfect masculine plaid DP in my stash. I couldn't believe how well it picked up all the colors I had used!

Inside: "Now that I have your attention,  Happy Birthday!"

Image: "Game On" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Silver metallic pen, Prismacolor pencil, Square punch,  Mounting tape, Tacky tape

Papers: SU! Gable Green, Only Orange, Blue (?), Neenah white, MME DP

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Natural twine, Buttons

Mo's Challenge #189

School's Out!

At least it will be for me next Wednesday! I love my job, but I love summer vacation, too!
"School's Out" is  Mo's Challenge theme for this week.

I made this card for our daughter's birthday. She's addicted to facebook!
This is pretty much what I'll be doing, though, once school is out for the summer....on the computer and not getting dressed until noon! LOL!

Inside: "Happy Birthday from two people who 'Like' you very much!"

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Turquoise and Green Galore (I'm really bummed that they discontinued that color!), Neenah white, Unknown DPs

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Prima flowers, Flower brads
 I've used "Georgie Cartwheel" on this card. He's as excited as I am about getting out of school!  He has not been put in the new store yet. If you want him, just ask Mo and she'll make him available for you.

I've made a spinner card with him. You can find the instructions for these cards on Splitcoast Stampers. They are fairly easy to make and kids love them! Below are more views of the way he spins across the card.

 Images: "Georgie Cartwheel" From Mo's Digital Pencil, Stamped sentiment

Tools: Copic Markers, Oval punches, Slot Punch, Dimensional dots, Pennies Glue Dots

Embellishments: Heart and Star buttons (shanks removed)

So let's see your version of "School's Out" in Mo's Challenge for a chance to win a $5.00 gift card to Mo's Digital Pencil.

Mo's Challenge #188

The Children's Challenge!

Mo's Challenge this week is to use at least one image of a child from Mo's collection on a card or project. 

I used "Howdy" on this card. She's absolutely a joy to color and comes with two sentiments, neither of which is on this card! I used a white gel pen and fine black marker to simulate a bandana print on her neck scarf, and a white gel pen for the polka dots on her skirt.
This is a retirement card for one of the many people who are leaving our school this year. I'd better get busy! I have several more to make!

Images: "Howdy" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment (Lariat font)

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Thin blue marker, Mounting tape, Circle punches

Papers: SU! Real Red, Kraft, Neenah white, Corrugated cardboard, Assorted DP

Embellishments: Natural twine, Chipboard stars
This is also the week for children to enter their cards and projects using one of Mo's cute images.

Looking forward to seeing what you and the kids will do for a chance to win!
