On the fifth day of Christmas...

Who needs Gold Rings when you could have five Mo Mannings? Regular viewers may have noticed my complete obsession with Christmas cards featuring Mo Manning images. Tonight is no different, so turn away now if you have had enough of my compulsion. I promise I will post a card in a day or two which features no cute girls in winter attire. (Darn, did I really just say that?)
Yesterday I was busy colouring and tonight I did the faffing with paper and sentiment, and lo and behold a set of 5 cards which are almost identical. How did that happen? Sheer laziness I expect.
Here they are in all their Quintuplet glory:

and for you added viewing pleasure here's a close up of just one, bottom right I do believe:
Lighting/photography is a bit ropey this evening so even more profuse apologies from me. I also know that Birdie will be tutting, sighing and shaking her head of the lack of glitter involved, K will be searching for ribbon, whereas P will be hunting for embellishments and gems etc. Sorry! Sorry! Sorry! Just can't seem to get beyond quick, easy and light on postage!
Challenges for this one is to go in are the usual suspects of:
Make it Monday - Always Anything Goes #62
OSAAT - use a digi
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Winter Wardrobe


  1. This Mo Manning image is great, no wonder you like using it.... and frankly speaking: who cares if you made 5 cards that are almost identical? Getting one of these will make any recipient think of winter/Christmas and know, that you made this card for them :o)

  2. Who needs glitter, embellishments or even (dare I say it) ribbon when you have colouring like that!
    Wonderful cards.

  3. Glitter doesn't add (much) to postage costs. Just saying!

  4. They are ALL so gorgeously colored! You've done an amazing job. :)
