Skip to my--Alice???

     Happy Thursday kiddies!  Wish I had as much energy as this little sweetie.  LOL  Her name is Alice and she is my "Anything Goes" DT card for Mo's Digital Pencil challenge this week.  Yep, it's an east peasy anything goes theme plus we have an optional sketch from our lovely Iulia.
     "A, my name is Alice" can be found right here in Mo's store.  I've colored her with Copics and given her a Make It Crafty cobblestone path to skip on, and a distress ink sky.
     Mo gives away a $5.00 gift certificate for every twenty-five entries so break out any Mo image and come play along this week for your chance.  Make sure you check out all the inspiration from my DT sistahs too.  :-)
     Thanks so much to all of you who left such sweet comments yesterday in regard to my departure from Papercraft Star.  Your words hugged my heart.  :-)

Oh,Tracy, this is such a yippy-skippy makes me happy creation! Love what you've done with the Mo image and the MIC cobblestone - waaaaay cute!!! wendy xx

Lisa Minckler said...

Hahaha,you got me good Hick,
"Skip to my Alice???" That was a hoot, until I took a break to fold laundry and then chanted it all the way in there!! Dangit. ;)

As much as I know this is a feminine card, the elements are just perfect for a masculine image as well. This is beautiful layering and separation of lines and elements that each stand out so wonderfully and uniquely.
A beautiful card and I LOVE them red n' white stripes!
Happy not quite Friday but can see it over the hillside...
