A Fond Farewell to Squigglefly, Holly, and Friends-It has been a WONDERFUL Ride...



Using an image from Sandra Caldwell called Love my puppy, I'm saying my goodbyes to this great site.  The sentiment on the front of the card says it all.  I have loved every minute of my place on the DT.  Holly and her daughter Ashley have held on with the economics of running this digital site way past the time when it was profitable for them.  No one can blame them for finally having to close the doors.  I've found many friends here and have great respect for all the artists and their products.  I hope to see their images at some other spot on the internet and have a library from my years on the team that will constantly remind me of what a great time I had at Squigglefly.  THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES....Love you all.

Sharing some Valentine Overalls with you from Doodle Pantry

Here's my first card to show you from Doodle Pantry for some little boys Valentines ideas!  Using Little Boy Valentine, I used the coveralls on this one (a girls version is shown later).  Patterned paper from the set goes so well with all the colors!  I fancy cut around the bibs so that the front flap of the card would be unusual.  Used some paper from my stash for the inside of the card, a few stickers in the upper corner and a sentiment from the set in the inside.  I hope you'll also check out the newest release on Tuesday at Doodle Pantry.



A Valentine post perfect for a little boy from Doodle Pantry

Here's another Valentine to show you from Doodle Pantry's Little Boy Valentine set.  Such great papers-I used the patterned ones for background and the solid for mats.  Laurie always makes sure we have papers that match perfectly!  The sentiments come from the set and could be used for a wide range of occasions.
Perfect for that tyke that likes to get down and dirty with his cars!  There's another release on Tuesday so make sure you go check it out-always something new and fresh at Doodle Pantry!

Some Valentines coming your way from Doodle Pantry

 After recovering from the "sickies" this week, I feel like I'm back in the game!  I wanted to make sure I shared some adorable Valentine's Day cards with you from Doodle Pantry before the big day!
This one is called Little Girl Valentine and has so many adorable components to it.  I fancy cut the frilly girl coveralls because I wanted to create an unusual opening.  Using a card blank, I covered it with sweet heart paper.  Then adhered the outfit to the front and trimmed away.  The inside of the card I covered with some great b&w design paper from another set of Laurie's, attached a sentiment from the Valentine set and mounted a double felt heart to the corner.

Squigglefly Challenge -It's SNOW much fun!!

For my next to last DT post for Squigglefly, I felt like I needed to be true to my favorite artist, Cheryl Alger.  She has inspired me for years and, with the help of the greatest digital image site around, Squigglefly, I was blessed to have been on the receiving end of many of her images.  This image is called That's Hot Max and I'm in love with the coloring I achieved with my copics.
 
The challenge was "SNOW much fun" so I used "snow" speckled paper and snowflake brads
I even added some white steam coming up from the cocoa-what fun!  The front sentiment is one from Doodle Pantry as is the inside design paper.  But the Friendship sentiment is part of the Max set.
I would like for a record amount of people to use a SF image and join our challenge-Let's go out with a BANG!!  Last time we had 33 entries! I want you to all get a chance to WIN and image from the SF shop!  We'll see you there!

Second NEW RELEASE today for Doodle Pantry-more opportunities to get some neat Sets!


I've found that I'm addictive to these new, gorgeous colors that Laurie from Doodle Pantry has been using lately!!  The teal/turquoise and purple is such a neat color combination, lol I've used it for several cards recently.  This image is called Bath Ants and, as usual, the kit is stocked FULL with papers, images, and accents!  It seems that a lot of sites have a theme for the new year that goes along with this set--relax with a nice warm bath and let your stress ooze away! The mats that you see were made from the solid papers-makes a great frame on top of the patterned paper from the set.  I only "had" to add some bling called purple goosebumps from Queen & Co. They are SO COOL!  The inside is very simple leaving lots of room for some notes of encouragement and positive thoughts for 2015!


This is Doodle Pantry's second Tuesday new product release for January 2015!
As always, these 4 new items shown below today are already marked down 25% off for you, but JUST FOR TODAY!
Also, it looks like AIMPDC1 participants are quite low... so that means chances of winning are GREAT.  We had wanted to try a themed challenge this year, but perhaps we picked a hard theme?  It is... Anything to do with MILK, creativity encouraged!  If you want to enter, check it out HERE
If you click into each product to view at the shop, you'll get a quick gallery of our Creative Teams creations to help inspire you!
LITTLE CRITTERS - This product is FREE with a purchase ONLY from today Jan 13 thru Monday Jan 26!   The style of these critters are the "Egg-shape" series I had begun last year.  I find this particular style to be very simplistic, yet whimsical and appeal to children of ALL ages (even some adults!).  I feel they also work well for baby cards.  So they are well rounded as far as applications they can be used for.  There are many more animals in this style coming in the new few months, so stay tuned.
