Boot Scootin' with Doodle Pantry

     Today's card uses another of the newly released images from Doodle Pantry.  I always knew I could easily get addicted to Doodle Pantry digis and now that I'm on the DT -- Oh, My!!  I have to discipline myself or I'd be doing nothing but coloring up Doodle Pantry images all day long, whether I had a specific purpose for them or not.  :-D


     I love these boots from the "Cowboy Gear" set and actually thought about my daughter when I saw them.  While she rarely wears boots, she's really into line dancing and West Coast Swing, so the sentiment, "Time to Boot Scoot" (also from the set), really reminded me of her.  I've done this one as a masculine card with lots of layers, pieces that are die cut and punched, and dp suitable for a guy, but is still a CAS design.  Why does everyone say masculine cards are hard to do?  They are easy in design planning, and usually quick to make.

     I colored the digi with Promarkers this time, then die cut a piece of CS and used the negative piece as the frame for the boots.  That's matted with black CS.  The background dp was in my stash of "autumn" papers and I have no idea who made it.  Too bad, because this is almost the last of it and I'd love to get some more.  The sentiment is corner punched, then matted twice and both mat pieces are corner punched also.   The double twine bow is the only embellishment, in keeping with the CAS idea.

     Challenges:
Bearly Mine -- Fall colors
Divas by Design -- Lovely layers
Lady Anne's Technique Wednesdays -- Anything goes
Papalitos Stamps -- Anything goes
Papertake Weekly -- Autumn colors
Passion for Promarkers -- CAS cards
Stamp n Doodle -- Anything goes
Stamptacular Sunday -- Less is more
Sweet Stamps -- Shades of autumn
The Crafty Pad -- Autumn colors

     Well, it's now the weekend and work chores are behind us (except for the household drudgery we all face!)  It's time to relax, have fun, and be creative.  Our weather has cooled considerably this past week (must be all that wishing and hoping I was doing) and I'm just soooo happy about that.  I shall not mourn the end of the hot summer weather and am delighted with the onset of fall.  Thanks for visiting, and please feel free to browse around while you're here.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Couldn't be a better male card, Connie. I love the sentiment and for the reason you used it.

I'm off to a football game so Fall really is here. If you know me, though, you know I don't want summer to go. :-)
