Doodle Pantry 'Noah's Ark'

Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day Weekend. I had to work Friday and Saturday, but I have today and tomorrow off so I will be getting out and working in the garden. I know it's not a 'fun' activity to most, but considering how rarely I have time to play in my own garden, it's 'fun' to me.

Today I have my last post as a Doodle Pantry Guest Designer. But it certainly won't be the last Doodle Pantry post you see from me, because I love their images and plan to make lots of cards with them throughout the summer. The picture belows shows a card made with a new Doodle Pantry image called "Noah's Ark" and designer digital paper called 'Baby Basics'. I also made a party favor made with a Doodle Pantry Template.

I know I got the sketch for the card from somewhere, but I didn't write it down and now I can't remember it. Sorry. The image is available either in black or white or pre-colored, I chose to use the pre-colored version because I didn't think I could color it this beautifully myself. I embossed the white panel with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, and put the Doodle Pantry 'Baby Basics' designer paper in strips up on top. The heart is a foam heart from the dollar bins at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts. The set comes with several great sentiments, I chose to use 'God's promises are forever' because rainbows are God's promise to us that He will never flood the earth again. I always think of that every time I see a rainbow.

The party favor was very easy to understand and construct; just be sure to use double sided designer paper. Mine is from Stampin Up! and is called 'So Saffron'. I'm sure it's retired by now. I added a simple bow and flower for embellishment. You can fill the boat with candy and use as a party favor. I think it would be neat tied to a baby present as well.

Here's a picture of just the card so you can see the image better.

Well I think my blogger saga has finally come to an end. After 4 days of being unable to leave comments, I finally just clicked the 'create a Google Account' line and just re-submitted all my information all over again, and low and behold I could leave comments again! It makes no sense, because I could still access and post on my own blog and all my DT blogs, that information wasn't lost, yet I couldn't leave comments on other people's blogs because THE SAME EXACT INFORMATION was lost. Weird. Computers. Can't live with them or without them.

Have a great day and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Amy

  7. Amy, this is FAB FAB FABULOUS!! Cute li'l matching party favor as well! I love this set--we posted it on the same day *Ü* Only I wish I would've had a rainbow on mine--but since I colored my image myself, I was skeered and didn't think I could make a rainbow as beautiful as Laurie's pre-colored version, LOL! Oh well... you do a great job on all your cards and can't wait to see more DP cards from you throughout the summer... and into the Fall ;)

    Have FUN working your garden! Hugs!
