Alisa with Roses - a Mo Manning Beauty

Hello, everybody!  Happy Sunday to each and every one of you.  I'm going to try to keep this short and sweet as I know you all have better things to do that sit here on the Internet all day, as do I.

I haven't done a Mo Manning digi in quite a while so I thought I should spread the love around a little bit.  I saw Alisa with Roses on Mo's blog a while back and I just couldn't help myself.  I had to have her.  She has everything I love... long, flowing hair, a full dress blowing in the breeze, lots of flowers and an adorable Mo Manning face. There is something wonderful about lightly starched white cotton on a summer afternoon, isn't there?

When I get a new digi, I usually color it a few times and select the one I like best to put on a card for my blog.  That's not to say that I throw the others away.  Oh, no!  I keep them in case I need a quick project for some reason or another.  I have had to pull from my stash of colored images on more than one occasion; usually a last minute birthday card.  Just a little insight into the methods of my madness.

So here is beautiful little Alisa with her basket of flowers and more in her pretty hair.

Is she not just the most delightful creature you have seen in a while?  I started decorating the inside of the card, as I normally do, and for some reason, I got a little carried away! LOL  I could almost cut this card at the crease and make 2 cards from it!  One of them wouldn't have the lovely Alisa on it though so I decided to leave it alone.  I may put some kind of verse or something on the left side or I may just reserve it for a handwritten personal message from giver to recipient.

That's it for now.  I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:

Mo's DP2 Challenge #138 -  Anything Goes (with a Mo image)

So until next time...

Happy crafting!


  1. Anne, you are so good! I feel like I could study your coloring for days and still find something else awesome to try! The green halo around your image seems like a strange color choice, but it's absolutely perfect! Lovely card!

  2. Gorgeous card, Anne! Love the color combo and details! Fantastic coloring of Mo's beautiful image! Thanks for joining us for Mo's Challenge this week!


I love hearing what you have to say so feel free to leave a comment.
