Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop! I happened to be the hostess for this month's blog hop and I challenged my fabulous teammates to make easel cards. It's been a while since I have made one of these, so I thought it would be fun to make it. Here it is:


I used the super duper sweet Bronte Kisses for my card. This image is also for a fundraiser that Mo is hosting. All the proceeds of this digital image (including three "doggie" quotes) while it's $1 will go to Pet Orphans of Southern California, so please help if you are a pet lover! =)


The image is printed on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then cut and embossed using a Classic Squares Large die. It's colored with Copic markers then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Classic Scalloped Squares Large die before I stitched the layers together.


The patterned paper is from the 5 & Dime collection by October Afternoon. I thought this image is perfect for a friendship card so I didn't use the quotes that came with this image. The sentiment is from the Friends set by Hero Arts.

That's all I have. It's time to send you to Debbie's blog, I am sure she has amazing projects for you! Don't forget to leave comments along the way, Mo is giving away a $5 gift certificate to two lucky commenters!





Have fun hopping and thanks for stopping by!
