sneak peek DAY 4! Mo Manning :)

Hiya sistahs!  Are you loving the sneak peeks so far?  Woodsies and hoppy poppies and big words.. ooh lalalalalala!!

Today I am going to show you 2 of the 5 Mo images being release in this release.. I fell in love with them and couldn’t resist.  Hope you love them too :)

First is HEY BUD.. I think it is such a wonderful simple image for a friend.. for a child.. just a general pick me up!  This card is by TracyMACabella

heybudtracymac

Another image I am showing today is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES called Valerie in Love.  Mo just “has it”… the ability to depict a feeling… even without a face?!  How does she DO DAT?  Amazing.  This card can be used for Valentines day, a birthday card, anniversary card.. engagement card… JUST. LOVE.  Seriously.  the little round heads.. the scraggly loose hairS… and just how they gently lean towards eachother…  the shoesies sticking up because they are still a bit nervous…Think I take my images a little too seriously? LOL.  I think so.  This card was also made by TracyMACabella

I hope you look forward to the sneak peeks as much as I love revealing them :)

sneaky PEEKY day 3! Introducing a brand new character!

Hiya sistahs!  I am SO thrilled that you loved Petunia yesterday… there are more woodsies to come so stay tuned!

Today I wanted to introduce you to a brand new artist , Hannah Cumming. When I found her, I squealed with joy.  Now I am not sure again WHY I needed “HOPPY POPPY” in my life.  But I did.  I carried her around as a screen saver LOL (not joking.. I even took her before Hannah said yes) just so I can look at her goofy smile and awkward demeanor.  I just wanted to make her MINE.  Again.. must be a tug from my childhood.  Maybe she looks a bit like Miffy? LOL… She’s WAY cuter than miffy.  So I made Hoppy Poppy come to life.. but our BABEROONIS made her come to life even MORE.  And when they did?  I just wanted to SQUISH Hoppy Poppy EVEN MORE. hmph.  It’s pretty difficult squishing a piece of cardstock.  Trust me.  I tried it.

When I created Hoppy (I call her Hoppy for short cuz I CAN), I wanted to make her SMALLish… and I wanted her to have clean SMALLISH sentiments to go with her.  There’s no messing around with Hoppy.  She’s all BIDNISS.. but when she’s not all BIDNISS, she’s a funny, goofy little bunny. And she is by no means PERFECT.  Is anyone?

Ok so without further ADOOOOO meet 2 Hoppy Poppies (yes that’s hoppy poppy in PLURAL)…

Since this image introduced me to the world of Hoppy Poppy, I decided to name her “NICE TO MEET YOU HOPPY POPPY”… mhhmmm I’m original like DAT.

This card was made by our very own TRACYMACABELLA.  Seriously now do you see why I have CRUMPLES of paper around me trying to be SQUISHED? LOL

nicetomeetyouhoppypoppyTRACYMAC

And the second image being Sneak Peeked (yes its a VERB) is HOPPY POPPY has a PREZZIE made by our very own TRACYBELLA

hoppypoppyhasaPREZZIETracybella

SeewhatImean about the little sentiments and the little hoppy poppies?  SIGH.  I wanna stamp her EVERYWHERE.  seriously.

Hope you enjoyed my Wednesday blabla and these images :)

Lemme know what you think!

Mwah to da sistahs who need a HOPPY POPPY in their lives too!

Sneak PEEK day 2! Introducing “THE WOODSIES”

Sistahs,

I have to tell you that this “WOODSY” collection is very close to my heart and I will tell you why.  I had a toy as a child in the early 70’s that has remained in my heart since then.. and when I was talking to Chrystal, our amazing artist, I told her about this memory I had and based on that she created a  line that I am forever indebted to her for :)  She brought my vision to life.

This toy was so special.  It had a little soft “woodsy” cabin with rubbery furniture and a cast of little puppet woodsy animals where you can put your little fingers in their sleeves to make them move and come to life (yes I am a baby LOL)… Now don’t get me wrong.. part of this woodsy collection are FARMSY animals as well LOL but didn’t want you to get confused and just wanted the whole collection to remain the WOODSY collection just for my benefit.  Cuz I am selfish and I wanna be 3 again LOL.

Here’s the toy I am talking about.  Don’t laugh. LOL..   IT came with a story too.. Sigh… Those times were good.

woodsies

Ok so I would like to introduce Petunia the Pig to you today.  NO she is not a “woodsy” animal per se.. but she’s MY WOODSY.  so THERE. hehehe

TracyMACabella brought Petunia THINKS she’s a PREZZIE to life today.. and the sentiment is just so perfect with her.

and here’s the inside of the card
