Another of my favorite October releases from Doodle Pantry! Charlie Autumn

Among the large group of October Doodle Pantry releases that Laurie, our fearless leader, has created for all of us is one called Charlie Autumn.  I just get the biggest kick out of this cute horse playing in the gorgeous leaves!  Just puts a smile on my face.  The fall leaf paper is just my favorite-it was such a busy paper that I felt that with the solid color mats I used, all it really needed was a simple grosgrain ribbon.  I think the angled ribbon gives it a interesting accent. 
On the inside I used another of the patterned papers in the set-I trimmed down the Fall leaves and used that as a border edge along with another sentiment.  Such Fun!  Be sure to check out the rest of our new sets and maybe you could use one of them to join in our Monthly Challenge!  See you there!

*H*U*G*E* October Release from Doodle Pantry and a new challenge

 It's time for a H*U*G*E October release from Doodle Pantry!!!  Laurie, our amazing leader, has out done herself and there are so many new images for your pleasure!  The one I'm starting with is called Autumn Song Birdies~Yes! they're back! And they're perfect for Thanksgiving Cards with their fall colors and cornucopia full of colorful vegetables.  I've enjoyed using my layering abilities to use all the digital images and papers together to create some of these cards as Laurie gives everyone jpeg as well as png images-so I can create mats and sentiments where ever I want to.  Then I can use embellishments to create more dimension.  On the inside is another of the solid color choices with mats behind one of the other sentiments.  Please check out the Doodle Pantry site for ALL the new releases and then come back at Noon, October 1st, to participate in the month long challenge, where the only requirement is to use a digital image-How EASY PEASY!  Hope to see you there!

Going DOTTY at Squigglefly and in Real Life!!!

It's been pretty hectic around here this past week as we are trying to get all our "stuff" packed and ready for the Covered Bridge Festival that will start shortly AND I started a new job this past Monday!
BUT I didn't want to miss out on Rhonda's Rowdy Rascal's weekly Challenge where we were to use dots on our card here at Squigglefly!  I Surely got THAT covered!  I've used "Female Singer" by James Horvath to make a Get Well card.  She just seemed a little bit Sassy so I just couldn't refuse!!
Used a heavy embroidered cotton lace ribbon as trim and fancy cut the card.  Hope you like it and will join us at the challenge!

Lacy Sunshine is our generous Sponsor at Southern Girls Challenge

This week at Southern Girls Challenge, we are lucky to have a Lacy Sunshine image to use for our Shabby Chic cards or layouts.  Mine's called Maddie- Scarecrow and I love her!  The reason I made the head section larger is because of all the intricate detail on the digi--this way I can call attention to the face.  If I were to make her small enough to be one layer on the card, the details would be muddled because I couldn't have colored each section very well.   Come join us for our 3 week challenge-plenty of time to get your creation done and win some digis of your choosing!

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring "Christmas" over at Fab 'N' Funky

These challenges themed for Christmas are at least getting me in gear to start working on my Christmas Cards !  Fab 'n' Funky challenges everyone to create a Christmas card so here is my entry using Winter Wishes from Doodle Pantry.  From the digital papers, sentiment and image in both a tan fence and red fence, It's all available from this great site.  I threaded a sheer ribbon though the card, added snowflake eyelets and used Flower Soft and Multi Crystal Glitter Mix from Stampendous for the snow mixture on the image.  Hope you will be able to join in the challenge-have fun!

Choose Orange, Purple or Black at Squigglefly this week! Perfect for Halloween~

This week's challenge is SFC3814 Choose Orange, Purple, or Black

This week's challenge at Squigglefly is to create a project using orange, purple, or black as your primary card color.  You can use more than one of these colors on your card. Your card doesn't have to be Halloween theme, as you will see from the DT examples online, any topic is welcome as long as you chose one of the desired colors. We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.
The image I'm using is from the artist Sandra Caldwell called What Witch. She was the basis for ALL the suggested colors and so much fun! Has lots of layers and fun ribbon and papers and some cute stamps-perfect to send for the holidays!  Come join us at the site for some fun and competition!  A FREE image is always a good thing!  See you there!

Kenny K is in the house at Seems a Little Sketchy!

 Kenny K is in the house at Seems a Little Sketchy for the next 2 weeks!  You could enter to win 3 Fabulous digital images from Kenny K Downloads- we have such great sponsors! 
I've definitely moved things around on the design but I really like how I've drawn attention to the main focus-Kenny's image!   Used dotted swiss cardstock for some texture, copics for the coloring, circle die-cut up on pop dots for dimension, finished up the inside with complimentary green design paper and a stamp from my stash.  Hummm.....wonder what my granddaughter is up to???  Thanks for stopping by and remember to get an entry in on our 2 week challenge-any image will work, just follow the sketch!  See you there!
