Mo's Challenge #211

Anything But a Card!

Cathy is our hostess this week, and she's asked us to make "Anything But a Card"
for Mo's Challenge this week.

It's hard for me to shop due to my disability, so every year at Christmas I give cash to our kids, their spouses, and our grandchildren. It's easy for me, and they love it because they can take advantage of all the after Christmas sales!

Each year I try to come up with a new way to present the money to make it a bit more special. This year I'm making these boxes which will hang on the tree on Christmas morning. I'll make about a dozen or more, and each will be different.

I couldn't get a good photo for some reason...the colors are not true-to-life. He really doesn't look jaundiced as he does here! LOL!

This image is one of three little gift-giving guys which can be bought singly or as a set. There is a girl version, also!

I found the box tutorial on SCS. You can make this into a gift card holder, too!
It measures 3 by 5 inches.

Here's a side view that shows the tab I added for ease in opening.

Tools: Copics, Spica pens, White gel pen, ScorPal, Poinsettia dies, MS Branch punch, Tacky tape

Papers: SU! Green Galore, Neenah white, PTI white, Gingham DP 

Embellishments: Narrow ribbon, Tiny brads

Please join us in Mo's Challenge this week with your "Anything But a Card' creation using at least one of Mo's images. You just might win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil!

I always love it when you stop by!

Mo's Challenge #209

Anything Goes With Mo!
Another fantastic "Anything Goes" Challenge from Mo's Digital Challenge! I love to be able to do whatever I want with no constraints! I need to get a start on Christmas cards for my personal use and to supply the florist who sells my cards. I'm really going to have to step it up if I want to make enough!
 I'm so excited because Mo has added some adorable, brand  new Christmas\Winter images to her shop just in time to inspire me!
This one uses Mo's "Herald Harry." I think it's an adorable image, and so perfect for Christmas cards!
Images: "Herald Harry" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Stamped sentiment by SU!
Tools: Copics, Spica, pens, Cuttlebug with Memory box and Spellbinders dies and Anna Griffin embossing folder, Oval punches, Tacky Tape
Papers: Neenah white, Paper Trey Ink white, Gold metallic CS
Embellishments: Tiny pearl cabochons
(My grandson wants me to credit him with holding the Ott light while I took the picture! Thanks, Caleb!)
Please join us in this week's Mo's Challenge and share your card or project using at least one of Mo's fantastic images! You just might be lucky and be chosen to win a $5.00 gift certificate to her shop!
