Amanda and her cats


     Today is a very special day at Mo's Digital Pencil.   We are all still reeling from the loss of our sweet Amanda Reed.  As a tribute to her, this fortnight's challenge is dedicated to the memory of Amanda, a talented and kind soul who left us far too soon.
     Because Amanda loved cats, and because we all loved Amanda, Mo has created this very special image called "Amanda"! You can find her in Mo's store beginning today!
     Mo will be selling the new "Amanda" image for just $1.00....with all proceeds being donated in Amanda Reed's name to an animal shelter near where Amanda lived::
     We hope you'll help us honor Amanda's memory...pick up this darling image...support a good cause...and join us for this fortnight's very special challenge!
     I haven't felt like making a frou frou card in a while, but I pulled out all the stops for my dear friend.  I miss her.  She loved butterflies and was famous for using glitter nail polish to color things on her cards.  LOL  I don't know anyone else who does that.  She had just lost her cat Wimbly and had brought home a new kitten from the shelter named Ellie.  I can just picture her sitting on the floor like this trying to decide which one to bring home.


Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R22, R30
hair E33, E35, YR23, Y21
clothing R11, R20, R22, C00, C2
kittens E93, E95, E97, W1, W3, W5, N3, N5, N7
yarn B0000, B00, B02
shading E40, E41, E42, E43

     I think Mo did an amazing job on the image and I hope you think so too.
     Be blessed, tell your friends and family you love them.  We're not promised tomorrow.
