Mo Manning Challenge

Hiya Everyone, Hope you all ok, Thank Gosh its Friday, I need the weekend so much!

Have had a week of it with my Niall boy oh boy, he has gone to school for the first time this week today I hope he has a good day and behaves.
We put our Ella in her big girls bed in Sydneys room, and so far so good, she is such a little love, she seems to be coping well in there and she is sleeping all night through even better, I would say she is potty trained now WHOO HOO, and she is staying dry of a night time and whenever she has a pull up on which is a bonus, going to give her another few days then put a waterproof sheet on her bed and do the night times eeeek.

Today I have a Mo Manning card to share with you :)

I have been real aware of my colouring lately and so I am trying hard to improve it, and try to use the light source although this is proving so hard for me, I just cant seem to visualise it too well, but I tried on this image.
I coloured them with copics and promarkers, the bunting is cut from a SU punch, the lettering from my cricut, the sentiment is from TiddlyInks. The papers, ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I am going to enter this into
Mo Manning Challenge - Something New (The Image is NEW to me as is the light source colouring)
Anything Goes Challenge - Boyz to Men (I know there is a girlie but its for her brother)
Divas By Design - Favourite Things (Embellies - Ribbon and Pearls, and the bunting)

Thanks for Stopping By Today, Have a Wonderful Friday
