Hello everyone.. happy Thursday and welcome to our 16th challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil!

Lisa, our January hostess, has created another terrific challenge for us this week... it's "Shades of Gray". So, let's see how you interpret this week's get-together. How will you create your masterpiece within the challenge guidelines?

Before we let this opportunity slip away, please join the Design Team in thanking Lisa for a terrific month of challenges.. She really had some terrific ideas and you apparently have enjoyed them!

For some inspiration, here's what the design team has put together for your perusal.


Don't forget to link your creation back here to Mr. Linky (that little feisty guy). If he has seemed to disappear or isn't being cooperative just punch him in the nose leave a comment here with a link to your creation. We will make sure that your entry isn't overlooked. Enter once, follow the challenge guidelines, and you are set!

Challenge #15 - Mo's Digital Pencil

Hi everyone.. and welcome to our 15th Challenge! We've been having a terrific turnout and love the momentum that's being created among Mo's followers! It's only possible because of all of you who join us week after week. And what a pleasure to see so many new participants trying digital images for the first time. What a fantastic job you are doing! Thank you everyone!

This week our January hostess, Lisa, has a color scheme in mind for our challenge. Aren't these colors great? Not everyone will have these identical colors in their stash, so to play along you can use white and the closest you have to these shades of blue and purples.

And here's what the Design Team has put together to give you some inspiration. All of these fantastic images can be found at Mo's shop.

This week our lucky winner will win an opportunity to ask Mo for an image designed based on their suggestion. We'll pick a winner through on Wednesday, Feb 3rd.. so stay tuned. You might be that lucky person.

Our challenge rules are quite simple... Use Mr. Linky to link to your blogpost (not just to your blog), enter only once, follow the color challenge for this week as shown above... and have some fun! Full details of our rules are listed to the right of this post, but if you have any questions, please drop us a line -- we'd love to help you out.

Mr. Linky was the most cooperative person last week... but we know he can get finicky! If he's not cooperating, just poke him in the eyes please leave a comment with a link to your post. We'll get it ironed out later and will make sure that no one is overlooked!

Happy coloring everyone! And, good luck in the challenge.

Mo's Digital Pencil - Challenge #13

From all of us at Mo's Digital Pencil we wish you a Happy New Year! We hope that 2010 finds you crafty as ever with all the mojo you ever need!

For the entire month of January our DT member, Lisa Cook, will be our Challenge hostess. Lisa is super-talented and you should check out her blog. We are very fortunate to have her as part of her team. Since we've been getting to know more about Lisa, we thought you would like to here's a note from Lisa herself.....

Hello everyone! I’m Lisa and I’m excited to choose the challenges for January! I have tried to choose a variety of things that I enjoy and hope that you enjoy them.

I am a Kansas girl and love crafting. I have a degree in elementary education, but haven’t taught since I had my daughter almost 14 years ago. My son is 16. The two of them keep me busy! My husband and I have been married almost 19 years. He is very supportive of my terrible paper/stamp/ribbon/Copic addiction hehe. I’m very blessed!

I have loved to color since I was a little girl! The smell of new crayons delights me till this day. I love making cards. It is truly my passion. Images that lend themselves to coloring are what I tend to gravitate toward. I like clean layouts that set off the image. I love embellishments, but too many can be distracting. I love to participate in challenges and keep a weekly calendar of my favorites so I don’t lose track and miss any!

I hope you enjoy the challenges I've put together this month!

Thanks Lisa.. we are looking forward to all you have in store for us this month!

So to start off January, Lisa is challenging us to make a card or paper project for a Birthday... Yup.. it's all about birthdays so you get to create anything you wish using an image from Mo's Digital Pencil and meeting Lisa's challenge. With Lisa's criteria in mind, here's what the design team has put together for her first challenge.

So grab your pencils, watercolors, copic markers, promarkers, or whatever you like as your weapon of choice and play along with us in Lisa's first challenge.

Our challenge rules are listed to the right of this blogpost, so please check them out. Make sure you leave a link at Mr. Linky (if he's working) to your post for this specific challenge, not just to your blog. If Mr. Linky isn't appearing, just leave a post in our comment section with a link to your creation. We won't overlook you!!

Thanks for playing along!
