Exciting News and a New Release!


Good morning my friends and happy Labor Day....hope this is a holiday for you that work and for you outside of the USA, happy Monday and welcome to the first week of September. It is the 5th of the month and that means the day that new releases are posted at Doodle Pantry and for this month I am creating with the realistic set "Parrot Play" and yes there really is a parrot with these colors!! This set comes with two parrot images and several sentiments, one of which I have used inside my card.



And that explains my exciting part of the post....I am now a member of the design team at Doodle Pantry and couldn't be happier to be playing and working with this talented group. I have enjoyed using Laurie's  images for quite a while and when she asked me to be a design team member for the next term, I was honored and delighted to say yes. Our monthly challenge also starts today and you will receive a free digital set just for playing along, the only requirement is to use a Doodle Pantry image and if you don't already own one, you may find a freebie in the store. There are always monthly specials ..... just be sure and stop by the store and take a look at the great images, specials and then visit the blog for inspiration from the team and all of the details about our Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 16. There are tons of beautiful new sets being released today and all of the ladies have been busy creating projects to inspire you, so be sure and go on over and check out all of the new eye candy waiting for you at the Doodle Pantry. Thanks for the visit, I apologize to those of you that I have missed in the last couple of weeks, to say it has been a whirlwind around here is putting it mildly, but I hope to be able to visit more this week. Have a wonderful week!

Paper: Stampin' Up Whisper White, Real Red, Summer Sun, Brilliant Blue
Ink: SU Markers in real red, brilliant blue, so saffron, summer sun , Copic T1
