Anyway... moving on....

So get this... I am sitting at my desk one evening and an email pops up from one Laurie Wilson (Ya ha the Laurie Wilson from Doodle Pantry)... anyway.... cut to the chase! She asked me if I would like to be a guest designer!!!

It took me all of about 5 seconds to reply and say YES YES YES!
I love Doodle Pantry!

So here I am guest designing for the month of July and I am so excited!
And today is an awesome new release! Yippee!!

You should go check out the Doodle Pantry Store and look at the awesome new releases!
I am using the wonderful Beaver Hello. This comes in both outline and coloured form with some awesome matching papers!

Here is the sweet card I made! Isnt this little guy sooo cute! And the sentiment is adorable!
I coloured him with my coloursoft pencils and tried to use the sky colouring technique by Dorcas. Me thinks a bit more practice is in order!

I was quite chuffed at the colouring of the Beaver though. Its amazing how much difference it makes using good quality pencils!

The card style is one I took from Split Coast Stampers! and the ribbon is from my stash!

I gave it to my wonderful grandmother in law! She is 90 this year and just underwent a cataracts operation on Friday... she is recovering well, even did a little bit of sewing on Sunday. She is the most caring, wonderful lady and I love her to bits, I am so glad she is okay!

I am so looking forward to sharing lots of Doodle Pantry creations with you over this month! I want to thank Laurie and the Doodle Pantry Creative Team for the very warn welcome they have given me!


The DIGI GRAB BAG section of the store holds items that Laurie has marked down 50% for 2 weeks from the 5th to the 19th. There are 4 awesome products to choose from Click HERE to go and check them out
