Mo's bye bye girl and combined challenges

Hi all you stalkers, hope the week started off well.  I must just add that mine is going terrible, dont ask how dont ask where, cos your geuss is as good as mine, but i somehow managed to break my ankle over the weekend.  Just woke up on Saturday morning looking like i have elephantitus in my right leg, and its purple to boot.  To add insult to injury we live in a duplex, upstairs and downstairs, so you can well imagine how i am feeling, and my studio is downstairs :(

I did however manage to get a couple of things done in the studio this weekend and i will be entering this one in a few challenges listed below.  I love Mo's images as i am sure you have heard me say on a number of occasions and this one is no exception, she is available HERE, she's called "bye bye"

Dp is locally South African made by Dalro designs, image colored with copics, flowers ladybugs and embellies from my stash.

I followed the sketch on Sketch Saturday so this will be entered there
DU2DS: blooms and butterflies
Stamp something: summer
Stamptacular Sunday: cute as a bug and if you add a baby its an extra entry.
Hope you enjoy this as much as i enjoyed putting it together,
 Have a great week


  1. Oh Paola, poor you!! I hope you have lots of meds to ease the pain hun. Your card is stunning, love the colour scheme and gorgeous colouring! hugs, Jane xxx

  2. Yowch Paola! How on earth did you do that! I hope its feeling a bit easier for you.

    Another beautiful card.

  3. Paola,
    What a sweet card, but how you managed after breaking your ankle is a wonder! Get plenty of rest and keep it elevated. I hope you aren't in too much pain, and it mends quickly!
    Get well soon hugs,

  4. Ouch! That's gotta hurt! Hope that it's feeling a tad better. The card is adorable! Maybe that helped some with the pain.

  5. Eina! That sounds terrible. Hope you feel better soon my friend. We have to get together for some crafting time before the holidays are over - seems like it is going past at breakneck speed.
    I just love that image of Mo's and you have done a sterling job as usual.

  6. Oh, I hope you feel better soon! I recently broke my tailbone and boy, oh boy... I didn't know I could hurt so badly! It still bothers me sometimes, but it's healing! Big Hugs to you!!
    This is just the cutest card! Love that image so much and the yellow flowers are SO nice against the black and red!
