Seasons Greetings!!!

The challenge at DP2 this week is to show off our favourite card during 2012 in which we used a Mo Manning image.  Actually, I have made quite a few which would fall into my favourites catagory.  I LOVE Mo's images for their character and versatility:
This one using Tom & Tilly who look so much like the recipients of my card who live on the Island of Crete which is why there is no snow on my Christmas card!
Kisses because it was my first step card and I like the papers and embellishments with this cutie
Dare because the colour scheme is funky and the image is divine
 And this glorious Bite because I like my design which matched the gift I gave with the card

But I just bought a new image from Mo and I'm going to enter this new make which I made for best matey Julie and which is my current favourite creation using
 A Little Birdie Told Me.  Isn't she just adorable!!!

Coloured in Copics and Promarkers, popped up with silicone, mounted on DCWV and K&Co papers and embellished with MS punched leaves (I tried to make the window sill look like a flower box), Crafty Bitz and texted ribbon.  And I'm also entering this new card into the challenges at:
Paperplay Out with the old, in with the new (I used a new digi stamp)
Stampin for the weekend Anything goes

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas 
filled with love and happiness!
and stamps and inks and pens
and dies
and ribbons

The Ribbon Girl has a fab giveaway running at the moment
