S & S Midweek Throwdown & Sketch #108


The Midweek Throwdown on the Stars & Stamps blog this week is to use a digital image on your card...easy peasy lemon squeezy!  I love using the precolored images from Doodle Pantry so I naturally turned to my DP digital stash (hey, I think I just coined a whole new phrase there!) The image is from the set called  Balloon Ants COLOR Plus and is available here.  I love the matching polka dot background paper that comes with this set and get this.....it also comes in red, pink, green, and yellow.  Can you believe that?!  What a bargain!  Just for fun I have posted pics, at the bottom this post, of the other cards I made with this set for my Operation Write Home box...I was on a roll!

As many of you know I have also embarked on a personal challenge to use all of the previous S & S sketches during 2012 and I have had this adorable image in mind since the first time I saw Sketch #108.  So... I guess there are just some times when "the planets align" and everything just comes together!  Here is the sketch I used for inspiration:



And here are the other cards I made in the same sitting.  I changed up the sketch because I wanted to use the words (also included with the set) and it seemed to crowded to me with sketch #108 plus the words.




These cards also qualify for the monthly blog challenge by Doodle Pantry in which they give away a FREE digi set just for participating - the only requirement is that you use a Doodle Pantry Digital image on your card.  Don't have any?  No problem....they have plenty of FREE images to chose from.  For more info, or to enter, visit the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge.  Don't procrastinate, the deadline is March 24th.

Happy Stamping and God's richest blessings,

Lisa

  12. I colored and made a card with these ants and they are one of my favorites. OMG....I love the set you did. I don't own the colored version and will have to put on my wish list. They are all wonderful, but so "striking" all together. What a wonderful gift to give someone.
