Just the Way You Are...


Good Morning! As promised, I have another Doodle Pantry Digi Image to share with you today...this one is one of Laurie Wilson's earlier illustrations and is called "Branch Birds". Aren't they the cutest things??? And I had a ball coloring those little guys to match this fun October Afternoon designer paper that I've been saving for just the right image. These papers are from the "Thrift Shop" and "Fly A Kite" October Afternoon lines and they really coordinate well together. "Branch Birds" is available for purchase now at this link.

Below is a photo of the coordinating card interior along with the computer-generated sentiment that comes with the "Branch Birds" set. The whole time that I was making this card, that Billy Joel song, "I Love You Just the Way You Are", kept playing over and over in my head. And, that's exactly how I feel about all my assorted dear friends...I love them ALL, just the way they are! Remember, you can right-click on any photo to view it larger.
