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.

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!

It's simple . . . just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image! Easy peasy!
