Doodle Pantry Quirky Parrot - New Release Day!

Happy April Everyone!  I love April....because it means a week off school/work and a trip to my 'happy place' in Butler, PA.  It is a semi-annual trip to stay with my BFF's Mom who pampers us while we totally consume her dinning room with our stamps, inks, paper, and embellishments....pure heaven for a whole week!  No fooling (pun intended) today is day 1 of 7 and I have an bright and cheerful card to launch this week's card making extravaganza...

Today is new release day over at Doodle Pantry Digital Doodle and this charming parrot is one of three included in Quirky Parrot. I colored this image myself using Stampin' Up! markers and I love how the bright colors coordinate so well with the two background papers - which are also included with the set, by the way.  The set comes in outline (which I used) and pre-colored images as well as some very cute sentiments.  I can't help but think of the parrot on Disney's movie "Aladin"...I hear his voice every time I see these adorable parrots.

The best news about the Quirky Parrot is absolutely FREE until April 24, 2012 for every one who submits a card on the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge.   The DPDC challenge is always an "Anything Goes" type challenge with the only requirement being that you use a Doodle Pantry image.  Don't have any?  No problem!  There are plenty of FREEBIES to chose from on the Doodle Pantry Freebie page.

Well...I am off to make some cards!  I have an order for 40+ cards to get going on and I plan to make some duplicates to add to my Operation Write Home box as well.

Happy Stamping and God's Richest Blessings,
