Christmas Chili's with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Today I'm sharing another Christmas Card using Doodle Pantry's Chili Peppers:
I made a couple of these for out of towners.  Now, let me tell you what our state question is (every state has a question - do you know yours?):
Red, Green, or Christmas?
So this is perfect!!  Especially since chili is so important to us culturally.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Short & Sweet.

Beach Girl with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Saturday!  This week's challenge at Catch the Bug is a photo inspiration, so I'm showing off Bugaboo Brats Isabella Beach to go along with the beach theme:
OK, to be honest, I think her ball looks like a watermelon and I should have gone with a completely different color!  Oh well.  The shell and starfish are from Create A Critter at 3/4" and 1", and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Tall Elephant with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  Today I'm sharing another card for my Auntie who is only with us for a short time.  I've been visiting and sending a couple cards a month, just to try to brighten her days.  I also make her cookies regularly!
Anyway, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the current challenge at Fab n Funky: Walk on the Wild Side.  I figure this adorable Elephant from Doodle Pantry's Tall Trio.  I'm using the colored version and papers.  Simple layout to make sure it goes through the mail smoothly.  This also meets the following challenges: Creatalicious Challenges: Monochrome, Eureka Stamps: Monochrome, and That Craft Place: Anything Goes.

Winter Blessings with From the Heart

Hello and welcome to a new week!  Today I'm sharing another Christmas card, this time using From The Heart's Stamp of the Month:
My DP is a little busy, but hopefully it doesn't distract from the cute snowman and his little friend.  The sentiment came with the set and I'm using my new Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  If  you don't know about the Stamp of the Month, I highly suggest you go to the blog to learn more so you can get a fabulous FTH stamp FREE each month you participate!

Balloon Penguin with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and Happy Saturday.  Today I'm sharing Beanie's Christmas card using Doodle Pantry's Winter Birthday.  Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the current challenge at Send a Smile for Kids : Christmas in July.
I  pulled out some old number stamps and a tab punch I've never used.  I like including the year on my cards for my girls, so when they finally get these all handed to them, they will know just how crazy mama was at that point in life!  Anyway, the sentiment is Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes and just a reminder that the current challenge at Doodle Pantry is Make it Christmas or Make a Splash!

Lifesaver with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and Happy Thursday!  It's hot outside and I can't wait for fall.  Anyway, today I'm sharing a card featuring a couple Doodle Pantry images:
For this thank you card, I used Friend in Need and Mini Summer Trio.  I wanted to show my appreciation to my big brother for all his help lately.  He is the only man I know who can fit an extra hour into a 24 hour day.

Beanie is taking a drawing course this summer.  I found a $1 drawing pad at Joanns, covered it up in black, and decorated the heck out of it!
For Bean, the more bling and sparkle, the better!!  She loves it, and that makes me smile.

Christmas in July with Doodle Pantry

Wow!  July 3rd and I'm already thinking about Christmas - because it's my favorite time of the year!!  And this month, the challenge theme at Doodle Pantry is Christmas OR Make a Splash.  So I'm going with Christmas of course!
I used the Holiday Cactus set, and added a few black birds for fun - we have lots of very loud black birds.  Yes, non traditional indeed, but hopefully it works.
I did add glaze to the ornaments and pop dots to the cactus for dimension.  I quite like this one.  So you have two themes to choose from for this months challenge!  This also meets the following challenges: Fab n Funky: Christmas, Crafts Galore Encore: Use a Stamp or Digi Stamp, Christmas Cards all Year Round: Non Traditional Colors, and Just For Fun: Anything Goes.
