Stampin' Sisters In Christ and Mo's Challenge

Mo's Digital Pencil SSIC

I am thrilled and ever so honored to be the Guest Designer over at
Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge this week.. I was jumping up and

down when they contacted me.. This week Helen  Phelps chose the
verse Matthew 18:4..."Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this
child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. "  Isn't it a wonderful
verse for this image.. This week Mo's Digital Pencil Shop is the sponsor..
She is offering 3 free images to one lucky winner.   The challenge is
to be inspired by this verse and an image of a child or childlike things.
Not a baby card though.  I thought  Em (from Mo's Digital Pencil Store)
was perfect for this challenge.  The flower and the pearls are from
two of my favorite Stampin Sisters In Christ...Sabrina Jackson sent me the
crocheted flowers and Pat Smethers sent me the pearls..These are
some special sisters...

Thanks so much ladies for this wonderful opportunity. 

My second creation is for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge where I am the
hostess for the month.. My challenge is to create anything that has to
do with WOOD.  It can be an image with wood, WOULD you be mine
for Valentine's day or a faux wood technique.. The DT was really creative
this week...

This was such a fun project.  I used Mo's free digi image from PCP..
If you become a member for every 100 memebers Mo offers a new

freebie so GO JOIN NOW.   I love birds and these are my North
Carolina Bluebirds.. Aren't they cute.. I think this is enough wood
here.. I even used cardboard and a wooden button.  Colored with
Prismas.  The oil jar has wood flowers and sticks..

Here is the inside:

  26. Oh MY! These are both amazing! I love MO's images, but I've never seen either of these. I am definately buying that first image, it would be perfect for First Holy Communion cards. I love the scored background and how you added a pearl in ever center. And your coloring on both cards is fabulous! Love the bird card too! I recently made an easel card too, but never thought of putting anything on the base of the card. Brillant idea. Love the buttons and the torn cardboard. Another brillant idea!
