Doodle Pantry Quirky Owl Digi Image and DP, Cuttlebug embossing folder, sentiment Impression Obsession

Needed a card to mail out today - chemo angels - young teen and she "loves" owls, when i saw the request I knew which image I was going to use - Doodle Pantry Quirky Owl - she is cute, girly, and just what i was looking for.  A simple sentiment and I will write her a note inside.  Love love love the pre-colored images from Doodle Pantry.

November 22, 2012 Caroling Friends

Caroling Friends, Doodle Pantry Digi Image, DCWV white core cs Spelbinders nesties, music dp from my stash, SU embossing folder, Small snowflake punch??, bling AMuse.

This darling image from Doodle Pantry was just perfect for my first Christmas card post.  I just got this SU snowflake embossing folder (has been on my wish list for a while) so it made the perfect bg for my image.  I still have a stash of DCWV white core cs and it sands out so pretty, especially for these snowflakes.  The image is "precolored" and the sentiment also comes with the set.  I have a small snowflake punch which I punched out of some blue glitter cs I had and a tiny bling in the center of the snowflakes.   I remember when I was a child after Thanksgiving dinner my Mom would get out her Christmas cards and sit and address the envelopes and write a note in almost each card.  I'm not that organized but with precoloed images as sweet as this i will get my cards done in no time.

November 16, 2012 Enjoy the Ride

Amuse Stamp, AMuse butterfly die, Amuse cs, Banner stamp ???, MS grass punch

Had a request from my chemo group for a "Need a lift" card so I thought this would be perfect, and how easy peasy it was to put together.  Love the bike from AMuse stamp set Enjoy the Ride - it has both a girl bike as well as a boys bike and 12 cute little sentiments.  For the banner I had several little scraps of AMuse cs (I don't throw away anything.)  It worked perfect for my banner.  Hope this gives the pt. a lift.

November 13, Digi Garden Girl w/Pumpkin

Digi Garden Girl with Pumpkin, Prisma water color pencils, DCWV white core paper, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Simple Stories DP, buttons from my stash, Spellbinder die cuts.

This sweet image is going to my little chemo patient who is staying at a Ronald McDonald House while she receives treatment so I am sending her a little envie with some coloring books, a sticker book and some M&Ms.  M&Ms helps cheer everything!!!  I colored her with my watercolor pencils (which I hadn't used for a while) used a bit of chalk for the rose on her cheeks, and love the papers from the Simple Stories line Harvest lane.  Lots of fun prints.  I am hoping she will love the little girls and enjoy her gifties.

The picture does not do the inside justice but you get the jest - both sentiments are also from Doodle Pantry which are included with this precious set.

November 5, 2012 Quirky Polar Bear

Quirky Polar Bear from Doodle Pantry, DP doodle Pantry, MS snowflake punch, Spellbinders nesties, small pom-pom, glittered cs.

This darling polar bear from Doodle Pantry  was one of my favorite images which was released in October.  The card is a technique from Technique Junkies CD and in September there were 4 friends that got together and we each brought a shoebox project and my friend Donna used this project called Zig-Zag Accordion Card.  The snowflakes are glued on thin wire and pop up when the card is opened.  The card she had in her shoebox was this one:
TAC papers, Hampton Arts Stamp, TAC flower punch, Sheer Ribbon

Isn't this one pretty - again same technique Zig-Zag Accordion with the flowers on individual wires.  What a fun card to make and to send.

November 1, 2012 Holiday Cactus

Doodle Pantry Holiday Cactus which includes DP used, Pop dots, Diamond Dots

Today is "new release" day over at Doodle Pantry  this set is FREE if you enter the Doodle Pantry Challenge 29, what a fun set to add to your collection for the holiday cards especially if you have friends living in the warmer southwestern states.  This card is a motion card - which can be mailed flat and then set up as an easel card once opened.  I used the design paper that comes with the set and I used the colored image so it makes matching a no brainer.  The next card also uses this set:

Doodle Pantry Holiday Cactus, DP and CS from TAC, pearls from my stash, cloud dies AMuse

I wanted to show a non holiday card using this set - again using the colored image , paired with some DP and CS from TAC which I still had on hand, I thought the paper had a desert feel and worked very well with this image.  Needed something else so added a couple of die cut clouds and bit of "bling" and this card is ready to go to someone who "needs a lift!!"
