Oh What Fun...

Good morning my dear friends & followers! I apologize for the time span between my last posting and this posting, but life sometimes just gets in the way of cardmaking...you know what I mean? With September came a new gym membership, personal trainer, bible study and with housecleaning and other responsibilities, I've been challenged by balancing everything out to a nice, smooth routine...maybe next week will be better. But anyhoo...here's my latest card I have to share with you, featuring the September 5th release of Doodle Pantry's "Sledding Ants". Now, I don't know if ants go sledding in the wintertime or not, but they must do something for fun and I couldn't wait to color this whimsical image that Laurie Wilson illustrated. Today, Laurie releases her September 20th collection of Doodle Pantry images, so don't miss them!
