November Goodness from Doodle Pantry!

Happy November! 

As it's the first of the month, it's New Release Day for Doodle Pantry.  Wait until you see the new digi images that Laurie has created!  There are some very pretty images, some fun images, and of course, those mischevious ants are at it again!

I had my Texas blogging friends in mind when I chose to work with a new set called Bluebonnets.  This is one of Laurie's pre-colored images, making this card very easy.



I printed the image, trimmed in a couple of places, then cut out using a Spellbinder die, and the Outside the Box Technique.  Printed the DP, also included in the set, and the sentiment, and put it all together.  The sentiment is mounted on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag Die. The little pearls are from a package from Hobby Lobby.

Be sure to head over to Doodle Pantry and check out the rest of the new releases, as well as the other DT members' creations!  You're going to want them all :)

Don't forget - the new challenge at the Doodle Pantry Blog starts on November 5th!  Can't wait to see your creations.


I have one more card to share today.  This is a very simple one layer card, using stamps from the Amuse set, Cool Yule.  The tree and sentiment were stamped using Tim Holtz Barn Red, and I used a red Tombow marker to 'stitch' some lines around the edges.

More great work, PJ! Whenever I see Bluebonnets, I think of Anna Wight's blog and the great photos she did a while back of her doggie lying in the middle of a field of them. It was awesome!http://www.pbase.com/annawightphotography/pets
