January 1, 2013 Old Ship


Doodle Pantry Old Ship Digi Image - (new release), Spellbinders nesties, copic markers, twine, AMuse cs, Amuse swallow die

January 1 and another "NEW" release from Doodle Pantry.  I choose Old Ship to work with more as a challenge to myself but also because I loved how masculine the images were and would work so well for my masculine cards that I send not only for Chemo Angels, but for hubby, son, and male friends that I need cards for.  Love the ship in a bottle - which is a "bonus" image and I have always been amazed how "they" get that ship in the bottle!!!  Loved how the polka dot and chevron papers went together for this card so well.  For the second card I used some scraps of Basic Grey that I had left - (New Years resolution is to use up my DPs before I buy more).  I got the wacky rectangle nestie for Christmas and it is so much fun to play with.  The card needed just a little something else so I used the swallow die cut in the left corner and I think it completed it quite nicely.

Wowzers, you have been busy! Lovin' that ship in a bottle - what fun! And masculine images are so hard to find. Great job! The second card is fun too - love the wonky rectangles...wonder why I've never gotten them? Hmmm... Happy New Year, dear friend! I hope that 2013 is off to a good start for you, Wayne, Bella, Stella, and sweet Dinah! Hugs...

A. Eautiful job showcasing the ship in the bottle image! I too have a goal to do more masculine cards. I need some real soon. It is nice that you are doing some cards for chemo patients. A close family mem ER has been diagnosed with with cancer and starts chemo next week . I want to send a card weekly that is manly with some fun and uplifting image and themes.

Two wonderful cards using the ship. I especially love the one in the bottle and yes, we are all in need of a masculine card or two. These fill that role in a big way, great job!
