Pig in a Punkin'

     Have you ever had one of those experiences when you see an image and think, "mmm, cute but..." and go on your way.  Then, you'll see that same image on a card or scrapbook page someone else has done and suddenly it becomes a "have to have that!" and ideas begin to flow?

     Well, that's what happened with this delightful Doodle Pantry set called "Pumpkin Peeps" which happens to be the freebie set you can get just for playing in our Doodle Pantry challenge before August 24th.  That's only 2 days so get going!   You will need a Doodle Pantry image to play along, but then you get a set free just for playing!

     I used the piggy but there's also a darling panda bear, some great digital papers, and lots of fun sentiments.  I'll show you a photo of set at the bottom of this post.

I used the sketch found over at Crafting Musketeers (although I'm not entering that challenge because it's sponsored by Delicious Doodles and I happen to be on the DD DT.  :-) )
and the colors came from Annabelle Stamps.  I love the colors and have already used them once before.


     The sentiment is part of the set also.

Animal Friends -- Summer
Cards Galore -- Bingo: sentiment/ summer/ ribbon
Catch the Bug -- Bingo: No dp/ sewing/ flower
Creatalicious -- For the boys
Send a Smile 4 Kids -- Animals cards 4 kids
Totally Gorjuss -- Die cuts/ punches

     That's it for today and I'm going away today for the entire weekend.  I doubt that I'll have anything to post again before Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.  I'm going to see what I can find in the way of a new home some 300 miles away from where I live now.  I'm going to miss my old Victorian house but will be so happy to live in the same town as some of my grandkids.  Family is so important to me and my one disappointment is that all my kids/grandkids and their families live so far away.  That's the brightest part of this move.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

A great card, with a lovely fun image and the sentiment is super, we have a saying here, similar, As Snug as a Bug in a Rug. But I like yours better.

What a super cute card! I know what you mean about seeing an image and it's cute but once someone creates something spectacular, I HAVE to have it. Happens to me often. I love the embossed background, ribbon, faux stitching and the pretty fall colors!

Have a safe trip!

Adorable! And the colors really are fantastic...easy to see why you've used them more than once.
I wanted to let you know I followed your advice and got myself some Promarkers. It will take me a while to get used to them but I'm happy I made the plunge! Thanks again for the hint.
