We wish you a Merry Christmas

Happy September 1st, thank goodness summer is over! With the 1st comes a new release from Doodle Pantry and more wonderful Ants. I LOVE these guys and they're off having fun! This set Caroling Friends comes with 2 main images (these guys) and the sheep, turtle and birdie along with 5 sentiments! The images are both black/white and coloured.  

I chose to use the black and white image and coloured it myself. I seem to be in a rut sticking with the white background and keeping the card simple. I'm hoping that with the end of summer I'll have more time to create something just a little bit more complicated!

From today until Sept 9 Doodle Pantry is having a Labour Day Sale, 35% off everything in the store (excluding gift certificates). The free with purchase stamp set this month from today until Sept 24 is Poodles of Fun and if you play in Doodle Pantry's Challenge (starting at noon today)  you receive Mister Monkey set for free!
