A Super Birthday for a Super Girl!

Good morning and a happy Sunday!  I have a short post for you today so I'd like to start off by showing you a card I made for my niece Carly.  Her birthday is in a couple of days and she loves turtles. So I thought about this cute li'l turtle peeking over a heart from Doodle Pantry.  This set is called Critter Tops.  The sentiment I used is from a different Doodle Pantry set called Super Birdie.  That's also a very cute set that I recommend for your li'l super hero. 


 Just thought I should mention that Carly has a sketch blog, Sketches by Carly,  and has a challenge going on right now, so be sure to hop on over and check it out.

The sketch I used for this card is from this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch  and here it is...

It's actually SSS132, but they are doing a Blast From The Past where they revisit older sketches from the past throughout October.  This one is SSS77 and it was perfect for my image.  I hope you enjoy your weekend and have a great week ahead.

Just Treats Please!

Hello stampers!  Today I have a card using Candy Corn Ants from Doodle Pantry.    I just love these li'l guys and knowing that it's almost Halloween I thought I would make this one and send it to my nieces.  I used the color version for this card and made up my own sketch.  The design paper is from Doodle Pantry as well and comes in the set.  

 Be sure to stop by the Doodle Pantry blog soon for a new release coming Nov. 1st.  Then on the 5th there will be another challenge, and did you know that if you play in the challenges, you'll get a free digi set!!  So mark your calendars for NOV. 1 and stop on by the DOODLE PANTRY blog for some fun.

Doodle Pantry Snow Birdies

Good afternoon!  I'm back with another card using a new released set from Doodle Pantry.  This one is called SNOW BIRDIE.  It comes in both outlined version as well as colored versions with some fun quirky paper piecing.  I used the outlined version and colored with my copics.  The sentiment is also from the set as well as the blue/black design paper.  To make the snow, I rubbed 2 styrofoam balls together and glued it to the snowy areas.  It sparkles IRL, sorry the picture doesn't show that very well.

There is a challenge going on right now over at Doodle Pantry, DPDC17.  All you need to do is use a doodle pantry image (not just a sentiment) and if you do enter, you'll be sent a free set called  Quirky Penguin.  If you love the new quirky line from Laurie, you'll want to make sure you add this one to your collection too.  The deadline to enter is the 24th, so you still have some time to enter.  

Just a reminder, if you purchase any items from the Doodle Pantry shop, remember to add the Quirky Turkey to your cart because it's FREE with any purchase.  But only for a limited time, so hurry on over

I'm also entering this card in the Stampin Sisters In Christ challenge which is anything goes.
