Doodle Pantry Sweets



Well, it is Monday and I am overwhelmed....Rick and I have been away for several days and of course there is the over abundance of laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc that goes with coming home, especially it seems when you factor in my invalid MIL and getting things back in order after having someone else in your home (Rick's cousin is caregiver for us while we are gone). I still need to catch up with all of you and what you have been doing while I was away and to get some things done for the coming week. I did get this finished before we left and I wanted to post it today to show you what a great simple and fast thank you card that you can create with Doodle Pantry's set Peppermint . I also used Laurie's Minty Paper Pack.  I added the thank you sentiment from the Peppermint set and then cut with a Spellbinders die. I used Prismacolor pencils and oms to make the red on my mints and then added a star spica pen for some shine. I plan on making some more of these for my thank you cards this holiday season. As a child my Dad always had peppermints in the house at Christmas. It brings back lots of wonderful memories.

Be sure and stop by at Doodle Pantry store and take a peek at all of the new items released this month. I know that you will find something you want.

I hope to be back later on with some pictures from our trip. Take care for now and see you soon.

I am entering this at My Partner in Crafting Crime where the challenge is Sweets and Treats.....check it out!

This is another fun set, and one that I haven't inked up yet - must do so!!! What an adorable card, Patti! Happy to hear that you are home safe and sound. Take care of yourself, and don't try to get 'it all' done in one day! Hugs...
