Hop right up to the Mo & Zo Carnival Hop!

Clowns, Fairy floss, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day... Where are we?

THE CARNIVAL!!

Hopefully you have just hopped on over from the Magnificent Magali.

If you just popped on by to say g’day and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to START HERE

Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.

Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them. Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is!

There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!

You've seen some amazing inspiration so far and now I'd like to share wtih you what I made using these two fabulous stamp companies!

I just HAD to combine The Fat Lady with the Unicycle!!! *giggle* I mean, COME ON! She is absolutely AMAZING right?! I think this could be a great pick me up for anyone having a bad day. The  bright colors, the funny imagery, yeah, I can see this making it's way to someone who just needs a smile. I really enjoyed coloring this image with copics and a bit of prisma colored pencils for added dimension.

Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28th of April so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)

We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!

Ahhhh, yes, did you think I was forgetting something? A balloon or two perhaps?


In case you are having trouble seeing the balloons, I have two letters for you today: "S" and "I" in that order!

Make sure you leave a comment for a ‘possible’ chance at winning some hidden treasures! Speaking of treasures - Mo has graciously offered up this adorable cute image for a special $1 to benefit Make A Wish foundations in US and UK.

Off to your next stop on the whirlwind carnival hop: The Incredible Irina!
