Meet 'Shy' for Mo Manning Challenge


Another unbelievably hot day today in this part of WI. It is to be 104 with a heat index of 110 - just too much! I am about to turn the air conditioning on already this early morning. Yesterday's storms passed us by again - more forecast for today and tomorrow but not much hope.

My card today is one that I have made for Mo Manning's challenge blog where the new theme is "Anything Goes" and I have done my favorite paper painting or fussy cutting - whichever you are familiar with - and have also used Crystal Effects on the hearts of her dress and socks to give them some dimension. This cute little person is a digital image of Mo Manning's called 'Shy' and you can find her and many other wonderful creations at  

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! I appreciate your visits so much and love to receive your kind comments and e-mails. I will not be back now until next week as family issues make it necessary for me to spend my days now addressing them. Between the heat and the continuing and seemingly never ending problems in certain areas of my life I am very weary. Wishing you all a very good rest of the week and a happy weekend!

I love your card, the image is so cute! I'm sorry about the heat wave - we are having it here in Chicago too. It just stormed though, so I'm hoping that means the heat broke (but I haven't been brave enough to go outside and check it out yet!) I hope the heat wave ends soon in WI!

Fabulous card, it must have taken an age to plan and put together.
