Hats Off To You....

Sometimes, a card is created, and it actually turns out exactly as I planned it! This is one of 'those' cards!



I'm excited to announce that I am on the Creative Team at Doodle Pantry for the April through August term! Those of you who have followed me for any length of time, have seen me work with Laurie's beautiful Doodle Pantry images many times! These PRE-COLORED images are from one of Laurie's new releases, Floral Hats, that you can find here! The tiny border is actually fussy cut from one of the DP's in the set. I cut out and popped up about 3 layers of flowers on the hat. All flower centers were dotted with Glossy Accents, and voila!

***

You still have several days to participate in the current Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge (DPDC11)! All you need to do, is create something using a Doodle Pantry image! All challenge participants will receive this beautiful Spring Day Digital Paper Pack absolutely FREE!!! In addition, one randomly selected participant will win a $10 gift card to the Doodle Pantry store! If you don't have any Doodle Pantry images, check out Laurie's 'Freebie' section! Hope to see your project in the challenge!!!


One more thing! It's Laurie's birthday week, and she has a special sale for all of her fans! From April 5th - April 10th, you can receive 40% off of all product purchases (excluding gift certificates). Use the coupon code: HBDP4U at check out! You can see all the details here!



I think I'll enter this in the Challenge at Joan's Gardens, as it calls for a 'white' card!



Thanks for dropping by today! Hope you are having a great day, and looking forward to a beautiful weekend! DD is running another 1/2 marathon on Sunday, so we'll be quite busy!


Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.
