We're all so "BRIGHT" at Mo's this week!

Happy Thursday! And welcome to my little corner of Blogland! It's time for a new challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! And this week, my sweet and oh-so-talented friend and DT sister Franz is our hostess! She's chosen a fabulous theme . . .

"Bright Colors"

Cool, huh? So . . . here's what I came up with . . .
I've seen so many gorgeous projects using Mo Manning's precious little cowgirl image . . . so I decided I'd try my hand at coloring her this week! Oh . . . and I found these fabulous digi DPs at Nitwit Collections . . . they're by Mary Fran and are called "Li'l Tumbleweeds Too" . . . they're perfect, don'tcha think?

This adorable image is called "Howdy" and is available HERE in Mo's online store. And what's even cooler is that this image comes with a couple of perfect sentiment texts . . . I merged one of them above my image! Here's a close-up of li'l "Howdy" . . .
I wanted to create something a little different this week, so I decided to make a variation of a "Joy Fold" card that I'd seen a while ago. My friend Dena created a fun tutorial . . . available HERE at Lili of the Valley's website.
 My Card "Recipe" . . .
Image printed on Cryogen Matallic White paper
Crushed Curry cardstock & inside sentiment: Stampin' Up
Digi DPs: "Li'l Tumbleweeds Too" by Mary Fran for Nitwits
Star dies: Sizzix
Border die: Magnolia
Jute & buttons: My stash
Charm: The Charm Store 24/7
Copics & Colored pencils

A peek at the inside . . . 

 And, of course, the  "artsy" angle . . .  
So there ya have it . . . my first "Triangle Joy Fold" card! I kinda like how it turned out! And I hope you've enjoyed it too! Now . . . please pop on over at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the brightly colored projects by Franz and the rest of my talented DT sisters! Then, please join us for this week's challenge. It's simple . . . just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image! Easy peasy!

Oh . . . and don't forget, Mo is awarding (selected at random) one $5.00 shopping spree at her online store for every 25 challenge participants!

So . . . that's what I've been up to!! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Hugs . . . until next time!!
