The ants are coming one by one...

Its October 1st which means a new release from Doodle Pantry! These pesky little ants are having a great dessert, Key Lime pie no less, lol! This new stamp is called Pumpkin Pie Ants and comes coloured and outline and is the free with purchase stamp this month, only available until the 24th! I took the outline and turned it into Key Lime pie. My husband and I tried to make Key Lime pie before and it didn't end well. Even smothering the pie in whipping cream didn't help but I won't be defeated.. I'm trying again. If the pie doesn't turn out at least I'll have this card.
I printed the stamp off twice to pop up the ants and whipping cream. I think I may have gone overboard with the pearls but I just love how it looked. The new stamp you receive for free just for entering Doodle Pantry's challenge this month are Poppies, gorgeous poppies! The challenge starts at noon so  start creating and enter the challenge.
