Challenge #8 - Mo's Digital Pencil

Greetings from all of the Challenge Design Team at Mo's Digital Pencil! And for those here in the U.S. we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, it's challenge #8 already. And we have been having a blast creating all kinds of projects for Mo's followers. Caryn's been our hostess this month and her final challenge is to create a Christmas scene using at least two images from Mo's Digital Pencil. For this challenge you can either paper piece your scene or use photo editing software (or both) to merge your images. Either way, join in on the fun. We'd love to see the Christmas scene you create.

Don't forget to use Mr. Linky and link to your challenge post... not just to your blog address. If you don't have a blog, no problem! Just link to your gallery on Paper Craft Planet, SNR Card Universe, SplitCoast or other gallery. The Design Team has lots of people to visit, so we love it when we can find your creations easily!

We'll randomly select a winner on Wednesday, December 2nd. So get crafty and link up!

Here's what the Design Team has put together for you this week...don't you just love them?

Many thanks to Caryn for providing us some great challenges throughout the month of November. She certainly is one talented lady! Don't you agree?

From all of us.. happy crafting and enjoy the challenge! See you next week!

Mo's Digital Pencil - Challenge #6

SPECIAL NOTE:  Mr. Linky is now fixed!! 

Hello everyone! And welcome to Challenge 6 at Mo's Digital Pencil. Last week we told you that Design Team member, Caryn, is our challenge hostess this month. We thought you might like to know a bit more about Caryn and her passion for this hobby we all love.

Hi, I am Caryn and I'm the challenge hostess for the month of November. I am a busy mum of 5 (4 girls and a boy) ranging from the age of 10 down to 2. I am originally from Glasgow but moved down to the Wirral after university nearly 15 years ago. My love of card-making began 5 years ago just after I had my fourth baby, Sophie. She was born with a condition called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and after major surgery at 2 days old she spent 3 weeks fighting for her life at Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool. I started making cards to sell in aid of the hospital and Ronald MacDonald house who helped us so much when she was there. She is a fighting-fit 5 year old now and hasn't looked back since those first few scary weeks.

My style of card-making changes with the weather - sometimes it's very CAS others it's busy and OTT! I have found a new lease of life with digi-stamps in the last couple of months and haven't actually bought any "real" ones for weeks! I started my blog, Glitter Me Silly - yes, I LOVE sparkles - just over a year ago and have become totally immersed in the world of blogging. I have found so much inspiration in that year from visiting the amazing blogs out there and everyday come across a new one to add to my ever-growing blog-roll!

Well, I really hope you enjoy the challenges I have set for this month and can't wait to see what fabulous creations you all come up with. Let the glitter run free and always remember - there's no such thing as too much bling!!!!

Here's this week's fun sketch challenge that Caryn created for us.

So hop on the bandwagon and play along with us this week using Caryn's sketch challenge. It's easy.. just check our challenge guidelines listed to the right and jump in. You just might be the lucky winner of an image from Mo's Digital Pencil.

This week the winner will have the opportunity to "name your stamp". The winner will give Mo a one-line description and "name" an image for Mo to draw... how great is that?

When using Mr. Linky, make sure you leave a link to your Challenge post, not just to your blogsite!

Enjoy your week and we'll see you again next Thursday.

Mo's Digital Pencil - Challenge #5

Hello everyone....and welcome to the 5th Challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil. For the entire month of November, our challenges will be hosted by the very talented Caryn Davies of our Design Team.

For her first challenge, Caryn has put together a theme of "All that Glitters" - Just use three (3) different sparkly elements on your card; ie: glitter, gems, sequins, etc. So get out all of that sparkly stuff you've been hoarding and join us for Caryn's fun challenge.

Of a sad note, June Nelson has had to leave our Design Team due to personal reasons. We wish you much 'good stuff' June.. please hurry back. We're holding your spot for you with the best hopes that you can return and bring your creativity and talent back to the fold.

Here's what our talented design team has put together.

We hope you like the cards our talented ladies have made for you this week. We certainly enjoyed making them for you, and working with Mo's images is a blast. So get all that glittery, shimmery, flashy stuff that you have on hand and play along.

Make sure you leave a link to your Challenge post, not just to your blogsite! Enjoy your week and we'll see you again next Thursday.
