Good evening all!!  I have a card that I made for the Doodle Pantry Challenge #2.  The challenge is to use foliage.  Either in your digi, paper or your punches.  My sister Kris and I made this a sister challenge to see if we can make it in under 1 hour....we got half way done and had other things to do.  So I finished my card a little late but here it is.  I used the digi called Rose Duo from Doodle Pantry.  Laurie has the most cutest sets you can think of and very reasonably priced too.  This digi is available for only $1.25

I used the newest sketch from Sketches by Carly for my card, and here it is...

One lucky player will win a $10 voucher to the Doodle Pantry store.  Whoohoo!!

Happy Birthday Carly!!


Today is my niece's 12th birthday.  So I would like to take a second and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!   I made this card for her a couple weeks ago and waited to post it so she wouldn't see it.  Carly is a very talented young lady.  She has her own sketch blog Sketches by Carly where she draws up the sketches on her own.  She has like 16 already on her blog and they are all wonderful.  Thanks Carly, I can always count on you whenever I need something new.  

For my card, I used the digi from The Wild Flower Patch called 'Winter Dahlia'.  The sentiment is also from the WFP 'Birthday Sentiments'.  If you have some time, you should go take a peek at what's in the store,  there's some awsomely cute digis for every occasion.  There are rubber stamps available also if that's what you like. The dp is from Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions.  Love those kits!!   For the sketch, I of course used Carly's sketch #15....

I encourage you to try one of her sketches and then link your card over on her blog here.  Next Friday there will be sponsored sketch, you won't want to miss that!!  Thank you for stopping by today, have a wonderful week, oh and again.....

Happy Birthday Carly *Ü*
