Mo's DT Blog Hop - A special Surprise Hop for Mo's Birthday!

Hi everyone!!!

Today we are doing a Surprise Birthday Blog hop in honour of Mo's Birthday 🎉  to wish her the very best.


The image we are featuring today is Mo's favourite: "Look, Ma!", the boy version, and you can find this digital stamp on mo's Store HERE .

If you are following the hop's order, you should have arrived from Julie's Blog  If you just happened to visit me first, you can start from the beginning of the hop from Debby's Blog .

Now about the card...

Seeing that this particular image is done with the pencil technique, I decided to do some free hand doodling myself, adding a "scene" behind the image. To colour my scene, I used watercolour pencils, to add a safe road where this little cute kiddo can learn to ride his bike without the training wheels :)

I used some Maja "Life by the Sea" papers, as some of the papers are awesome for male cards, with  the blue shades and patterns. I also paper pieced the boy's zip up with one of the papers as well.

But as you can see, I let the stamp take the main focus, adding only some ribbon, and some stars to the card. I hope that you like it, and that you continue to hop around, seeing what my amazing Dream Team mates have created with this cutie!

The sentiment was a free digi from Create with TLC... I immediately wanted to pair it with this stamp.
To continue hopping, you can now go to Kaly's Blog, I am sure that she also has a wonderful creation to share with you :)

Since you can't have a hop without prizes and because its a Birthday hop we have 3 prizes of $5 so you can buy Mo's Favourite image too.
