Mo's Digital Pencil DT Blog Hop- A Tribute to Ginger

Happy Sunday to you all!

Thank you for swinging by today, for coming here to spend some time with me. Another week has gone by, my how time flies! I have already been a week in my new home, and thank God I am settling down very well. This is a temporary move, I will have to move for to a more permanent Home around November, but I have already taken a lot of my things there, so it won't be too much of a hassle like this one.

Today, we, Mo's Dream Team and Mo's challenge Blog theme are celebrating Ginger. Ginger is a very darling woman, with a lovely smile that says it all, and she has her Birthday today. Who is Ginger? you ask.

Ginger is Mo's GREATEST fan.. because she is her dear mum!

Yes, Mo's mum has her Birthday today... HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ginger dear! We are celebrating YOU today, hoping that this lovely surprise will make you very happy. We decided to send Ginger a Birthday card each, obviously including an image from Mo's wide variety.

If you happened to stumble on my Blog, and would like to see all the cards in the proper Blog Hop order, you can go to Jak's Blog. If you came here from there, than you are right on track. Keep reading :)

And for Ginger I chose the Happy Nuns image. The real name of this image is : Joy. Not only because I am a Nun myself, and a Happy Nun at that, but Ginger herself had requested this image from Mo, so I know she likes it for sure ;)

I used some lovely Glittered DCWV (if I'm not mistaken) papers for this special occasion, and IRL the card looks magnificent. I was happy with the mixture of colours and layout. I hope Ginger thinks the same as well, because it is more important that she likes it, as it is done for her :) lol

I wanted to keep it simple, so that the image takes the focal point of the card, but I could not resist to give her a generous flower tratment, also knowing that the recipient of this card is a beauty herself! :)

I used my doily lace punch for a side punched border, and dewdrops and pearls as embellies. For the inside I used the same colours, and I stamped a Stempelglede corner stamp for some grunge look. I used Pine Needles Distress ink with the stamp, and IRL it matched the papers perfectly. The photo's colours makes it look stronger that it actually is.

Now off you hop to Debbie's blog, and I'm sure there is a wonderful creation waiting for you. I am also going to hop myself today, I am sure I will see wonderful creations along the way. Thank you again for coming over, and I appreciate every comment you may leave.

If you get lost along the way , here is the Blog Hop order:

Skin Colours: E 000, 00, 11, 21
Clothes colours: N0, 2, 4, 6, 8

Being a Mum myself, I know we are our children's biggest fans! Mo's creativity surely bloomed with her mothers encouragement. Happy Birthday Ginger. Your card to Mo's mum is beautiful. How thrilled she has to be that you all did this for her.
