Hi All!  Today's card was inspired by the Crafty Friends Challenge #13 -- Clean and Simple.  I recently discovered some circular alphabet dies that have been collecting dust since my early card making days.  Don't you just love when that happens?  The dies sure came in handy for this quick and easy card!  

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Hope everyone has a great week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Doodle Pantry Release

Happy Saturday!  Well, it's the first of the month and time for another new release by Doodle Pantry.  Laurie has added some great new sets to the store, and I chose to play with the new Bottles and Jars.  This set is  a joy to work with as the creative possibilities are endless.  

Since I love to combine sets, I couldn't wait to fill the jar with peppermint candies from DP's Peppermint set. The candies were colored digitally. The label on the jar was made by combining an oval shape with a sentiment from DP's Candy Cane Ants.  I then colored the jar's lid with Irojiten colored pencils before cutting out the candy jar.   Embellishments include twine and a bow; a sentiment from DP's Nutty for You, which I punched out with a small tag punch; and tiny holly leaves and a rhinestone berry from my stash.  I have to say this was a lot of fun to make!

Next up is a gorgeous new set called Vintage Ornaments.  For a limited time this set is free w/purchase from December 1 through December 8. 

Here's a quick, clean and simple card that I made using Vintage Ornaments. My card is a case of one I saw on Mary Fish's blog, Stampin' Pretty.  BTW, Mary's blog is filled with gorgeous inspiration. You really should check it out!

 I hope you stop by Doodle Pantry to see all the new sets and beautiful samples made by the team. In addition, be sure to stop by the specials page to get the blowout sale coupon code for 35% off image products (excludes gift certificates)!

Thanks so much for the visit.  Have a great weekend!
