Love You More Than Chocolate! and more changes at Mo's!!

Remember how I mentioned a few weeks back that plenty of changed were coming around the corner... well here is another one of them!!! From now on, you will have the BLESSED DELIGHT!! (lol) of seeing a card once of week created by me instead of once a fortnight.. That's right!! From now on, each Friday in Australia (so Thursday for most of the rest of the world) :/ I'll be sharing a card to hopefully inspire you to create wonderful knew projects and cards.. and to show off the absolutely gorgeous and beautiful images and designs that the fabulous Mo Manning is drawing up for us all!!

For now we, the Design Team, we will be sharing our makes each on our designated days in Bella and Bronte's Clubhouse on Facebook, so there should be a DT card being presented daily by one of us... but in the coming weeks a new blog will be set up to feature our works there as well.... ALL VERY EXCITING!!!!

Also Mo has been a busy little bee and done some extensive remodeling!! LOL to her current blogs and the Digital Pencil Challenge we encourage you to come on over and have a look at the new designs and give your feedback on what you think of the new styles.. You can toggle between the different modes/styles of page on the toolbar across the left hand top of the page. Come on an take at look at the DP2 Challenge page, Mo's Dream Team page and Mo's Digital Pencil Too page.

So.. with all these changes...we, like you all.. Can now do ANYTHING GOES!! and do not have to stick to themes.. which is marvelous. Do not get me wrong.. I LOVE themes, they make you think outside of the box... However, I often see digital images in Mo's online store and my little mice are running on there wheels in my mind coming up with there ideas, but I couldn't use them previously because they did not fit the theme.... now that's NOT AN ISSUE!! So I can let my creativity run wild and just do whatever I want to do. So I hope in the coming weeks/months you will see some merges and playful uses of Mo's digis that I have wanted to do for awhile, but have had to put off and I really hope you enjoy them... But for now.. lets just start off slow!

My card for this week features the lovely new stamp that was released for Valentines day called "Chocolate Heart".. now I know it's no where near Valentines day anymore, but The one thing I love about this stamp, and it's sentiment is that you can use it at any time, for anyone that you LOVE!!.. It doesn't have to be attached to Valentines day.

  2. I love how chocolately you made your image in your beautiful card. The deep browns are sooooo perfect. Thank you, too, Amanda, for the lovely comments you left on my blog. I don't actually know how I manage to do some of my photoshop techniques so I shall have to concentrate on writing it down in order to write a tutorial. Can you give me a week and a bit to get my act together? Hugs, Lesley

    1. Oh thank you Lesley for popping by!! Of course I can give you a week!! Teehee... it was probably cheeky me asking in the first place, but it was such a marvelous design and technique that it would be fantastic if you could share it with the group... :) So however much time you need.. :) When finished just pop a link in the Bella and Brontes site to your blog (make sure you use a Mo Manning stamp, if that's ok, the "Sheep" image is PERFECT) and we'll pop it up in our Tutorials on the page and refer people to your blog in the future if they are looking for an interesting way to do backgrounds. :) it's a win win.. You get referrals to your blog through the page and increased blog traffic, and we get to see Mo's stamps being used in an interesting fashion!... Well I look forward to seeing what you come up with!! HUGS XO Amanda.
