Doodle Pantry Release


It's Tuesday!  That now means it's time for some more new releases at Doodle Pantry!!  We've got some fun, fun sets for you today!

My first card is made using Critter Bugs...

I used a colored image, sentiment, and digi paper from this set.  They are cut out with Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals.  I embossed the paper with CB Swiss Dots and With Gratitude.  There are tiny black adhesive pearls in some of the flowers but they are kind of hidden by the black gem flourishes.


I'm submitting this card to these challenges...
Dies R Us #18 - die cut + embossing folder
Crafting from the Heart #43 - anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #228 - embossing
  Here's everything that comes with this set...



My second card is made using Little Boy Valentines...

 
I printed the image twice and fussy cut the truck and wheels for some dimension.  After cutting and embossing the digi paper with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A, I sanded it to rough it up a bit.  Black baker's twine gives some interest and texture.  The sentiment is cut using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners. 

Isn't this an adorable set??

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!  Please take a minute to check out the new releases at Doodle Pantry and don't forget that you still have time to play in our Ants In My Pants Digital Challenge 1.  :)

Wild about you - TMS #284


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  



My image and sentiment are from Doodle Pantry's Safari Critters.  My DP is We R Memory Keepers "Hall Pass."  

This week we are playing with Jessi's favorite sketch from 2014...



Our sponsor for this week is Doodle Pantry!!  Play along for your chance to win some fun images!!  Today over at DP, there are some new releases to see, too!! :)

Verse card


*Scroll down or click HERE for my Tuesday Morning Sketches post*

I've got a verse card today.  I'm going to print this verse again since I had originally printed it with some friends in mind, but then sent it to another friend that I thought could use the encouragement.  I love the phrase, "Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk."  So thankful for the Lord's daily leading in my life!



The verse is the free word art from Word Art Wednesday this week.  It is inked with TH walnut stain.  The verse is cut out with Spellbinders Petite Circles Large and Small and then matted with Labels 18.  DP is Prima Stationer's Desk and is embossed with CB Teresa Collins Timeless EF.  The ribbon is Casa Collection from Joann. 

Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #165 - anything goes w/ word art or uplifting sentiment

Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!!

**FYI you do not have to "prove you are not a robot" to comment.  Just ignore that! ;)

Let it snow!


Some of you may groan at that title, but if you've followed me for any time at all, you probably know that I LOVE SNOW!!!  I love to ski, skate, go sledding, and even make snow angels!  ;)   We had a big storm early in December then the temp got waaaaay too warm for December and it all melted.  The temperatures have plummeted, but sadly, the snow has been scarce.  But I'm still hoping for SNOW!!!!! 

All that to explain why I chose this sentiment with this adorable little snowman...


My image and sentiment are from "Little Snowman" -  From the Heart Stamps.  It is colored using Spectrum Noir markers and cut out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and Spellbinders Tile Works.  My DP is K&Co.  The snowflakes are Sweet 'n Sassy Small Snowflake Dies.  The hat and snow are colored with a sparkly gel pen.



Challenges...
FTHS Stamp of the Month Jan - must use "Little Snowman"
Sentimental Sundays #241 - Winter Sparkle

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

A bit more Christmas and some news


Happy New Year to you!  May 2015 be a blessed year for you and yours!  [2015??? How can that be???]

I've got a few cards that I made at the last minute.  I'm so terrible and very ashamed of myself this year.  MOST of our friends only got a Facebook greeting from us.  I started early and sent handmade cards to all of our family, but then life got in the way and I only sent a very few store-bought cards to some friends.  :(   Next year, I will do better!!

These are made using French Horn PDF Card Fronts Kit and COLOR French Horn from Doodle Pantry.  Some have more detail than others, and all were fairly quick and easy but still pretty! 

All I did here was mat it and tie a narrow gold ribbon.
I printed 2 of these and cut the green shape and popped it up a bit, then added a few adhesive pearls.
This was matted twice and the bow fussy cut and popped up.
The red mat was embossed and the gray was distressed.
Matted the image and embossed a border punched strip.


Image was matted and ribbon gathered with a star brad.
Challenges...
Sister Act #87 - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #163 - anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Die Cut Divas Dec - Snow and Christmas/Holidays (2nd entry) -I used Spellbinders Labels 8 and 15 and 5
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I said I had some news. Some sad, but some good and fun!  It's about Doodle Pantry.  Since she explained it well, I've just copied most of what Laurie posted at the DP blog...


1. First, a very unfortunate announcement.  Due to the VAT law changes in the European Union, the shop can no longer sell digital products to those living in a member country of the European Union, countries listed here, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom. 



How am I regulating the sales?

  • The Paypal account will no longer accept payments from those with residential addresses in a European Union member country.  
  • Likewise, a pending order with a balance due will be cancelled immediately, and the downloads will NEVER be activated.  
  • If by a freak of technical chance, a payment actually goes through from someone in a European Union country, your order will still not be activated.
  • I do believe, however, anyone can win and use a PRIZE won from a challenge, as long as after you use the prize amount, there is not a balance due.  So I certainly hope those in the European Union will still play our challenge as well as those whom we sponsor for a chance to win.

2. IN January, we are changing our release days.  We will have between 2-5 NEW products EVERY Tuesday, 4 Tuesdays each month!!!  And when you shop on a Tuesday, the NEWLY released products on that day, will be marked 20% OFF!  But only on the Tuesday they are released!



3. Our Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge (DPDC) is GOING AWAY!



4. And a NEW challenge is starting!  What's the new challenge called?  It will be called Ants In My Pantry Digital Challenge (AIMPDC)! It will start on the FIRST Tuesday, and will accept entries for 2-1/2 weeks and winners announced on the 4th Monday of the month.  

  • The monthly challenge will have THEMES.  
  • There is no featured product.
  • Only enter once, follow theme guidelines.
  • Two winners are chosen by random.
  • I think it is going to be a lot of fun!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sooooo, I'm very sorry for DP's European customers!  But remember you can still play the challenge and win and get free product.

Gift box - TMS #281


Happy Tuesday to you!!  While it's almost time for Christmas, it really is time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

This week we don't have a sketch for you.  :-O  Are you shocked?  I am!  LOL 
This week is our Annual "Anything Goes" Challenge.  That means you can create anything you want to share with us!!  Also, this challenge will last for 2 weeks.  That's right, you'll have until Sunday, Jan 4, to create something wonderful to share with us!

I've made a gift box.  I'm going to put a picture of my  husband's present in it.  [Why a pic?  Because the actual item is not yet available.  :/ ]  


This was really fun to make!  The instructions can be found in THIS POST at Crescent Stampin'.   I left off the handle, but made the box using the instructions there.  My base is Cutmates CS.  I used Neenah Desert Storm CS, Paper Studio Kraft Christmas DP.  The image is FTHS December Stamp of the Month image... Christmas Spirit Birdbrain.  So cute!  
I wrapped the box with burlap, cut the image with Spellbinders, added a  Sweet n Sassy die cut snowflake, and a brad.
I loved last week's sketch so much that I used it as inspiration for my decorated panel...


On the lid, I added an EK Success punched snowflake, a large brad, and the sentiment.


Our very own Melissa is sponsoring this week with a gift card or shopping voucher.  To where is a surprise, but I guarantee that it will be something you'll love!!


I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!  It's my prayer that you know the Christ of CHRISTmas as you own personal Lord and Saviour!!  


Challenges...
Die Cut Divas Dec Challenge - snow and Christmas/Holidays 
Bearly Mine Dec Challenge - Christmas anything but a card
Sentimental Sundays #238 - anything but a card
