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
