Oh Paddy Boy......

     Hey, so far so good.  I'm still keeping up with my calendar pages and Mo came out with the perfect new image for March.  I think no matter what ethnicity you are, everyone turns Irish in March.  LOL  I can claim some true Irish blood in my mix although it's pretty diluted, but I think this little fellow is full on from the Emerald Isle.
     Obviously it's Thursday and time for another challenge from Mo's Digital Pencil.  We're about to undergo some changes at Mo's and we hope that you'll like them.  Starting next week our challenges will start being bi-weekly on the 2nd and 4th Thursday's of each month.  Same rules...follow the theme and use a Mo image.  On the 15th we will be opening Bronte and Bella's Club House on Facebook.
     Make sure you check out all the details on the DP2 Blog today to learn how you can join in this new place to play with Mo's wonderful images.  Here's a little bit about the Clubhouse.

As a Clubhouse member, you will get to...

  1. Participate in monthly "Showcase" challenges (beginning April 1st)...with a chance to "win" a Guest Designer spot for a month!
  2. Hang out with fellow artists and crafters (card creators and non-card creators!)
  3. Meet new friends and reconnect with old ones!
  4. Learn new crafting techniques!
  5. Participate in games & contests...with prizes!
  6. Have access to surprises you won't find anywhere else!!
  7. And so much more!
     Sounds like lots of fun huh.  We know that a lot of people spend more time on FB than blogging so we wanted to open that avenue up for Mo fan's too.
     Here'a closer look at "Paddy" who you can find in Mo's store.
