We are very excited here at the Shoe to introduce you to this week's Sponsor (and many of you may not need an intro):

I personally adore each and every image created by Mo Manning!  You definitely have to visit the Digital Pencil and see all of the delightful images available!  I am also incredibly excited to tell you that one random entry in this week's challenge will receive a $15 gift coupon to Mo's Digital Pencil!  How fabulous is that???  Thanks to Mo's for being our sponsor this week!  and now...on to the new challenge!

The Birthstone for the month of May is Emerald, so we want to see some GREEN!  Here is a little bit about the Emerald and maybe just a bit of inspiration for you (from Wholesalenest.com):
The name emerald comes from the Greek smaragdos via the Old French esmeralde, and really just means 'green gemstone'. Innumerable fantastic stories have grown up around this magnificent gem. The Incas and Aztecs of South America, where the best emeralds are still found today, regarded the emerald as a holy gemstone. However, probably the oldest known finds were once made near the Red Sea in Egypt. 

and now to the gorgeous samples provided by our amazing DT!

Wow!  Love all of the different ways the color green was used!  And now...it's your turn!  Share your art with us (new as of 5/6/11) using the link below.  Please use a direct link to your project, and include a link back to us, here at the Shoe.  It is much easier for us to comment on your work when you include the direct link!  If you are posting to an online gallery, please use the tag FF#78.  We can't wait to see what you create using the color green!  Last, and most certainly not least, Happy Mother's Day!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
