A Day Late.....


Good Monday Morning!!!
I should have posted this at Noon yesterday, but we have been out of power due to the storms passing through our area. We are blessed to be back on so quickly as some in our town and county may be out for the rest of the week.
Thoughts and prayers to any going through troubles with Mother Nature at the moment.

I had the pleasure of showcasing Doodle Pantry's newly released set Mini Bethlehem which you can find here .  There are lots of specials this month and you will want to check them out at the home page at Doodle Pantry and at the Doodle Pantry Challenge Blog where we are doing things a bit differently for the summer. We know everyone is super busy this time of year, so you will be able to download this month's set directly from the blog. In addition, you have two ways to win! There will be two links, one for any Doodle Pantry image and the other using our free set "Tiny Triceratops" which will be free from July 1-15.  


There will be a winner from each group of cards submitted.
In addition, Laurie is running a sale of 25% off on selected images, from patriotic to Christmas, so be sure and check it out. Also this month's free with purchase will help give you a head start on those Christmas cards.


We have something for everyone this month.....

My card uses the papers that comes with this set as well as the sentiment that I used for the inside.


I made a second card using another of the sentiments and fussy cutting around the image. The town of Bethlehem comes in outline as well as color ...which makes making a mass production of these for your Christmas cards super easy.


Thanks for stopping by, I hope to be able to see you soon, now that I am back online.
Happy Day!!!
