Sweet and simple Merry Deer


Merry Deer

I have been wanting to use this image for a very long time but my coloring skills are not that great. So I was super excited when she re-released (was a Clearly Digital Stamp) Merry Deer in a Color version! I only had time to make the gold version of this card but I hope to try this layout with the purple and teal versions also included in the digital stamp.

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenge #194 – Anything Goes. Fab ‘n’ Funky is celebrating their 4th birthday so come over and play along!! Lots of prizes by different sponsors being offered.  Since the challenge was anything goes I looked at other current challenges out there to see what could inspire my card. I am not a CAS (clean and simple) kind of girl but I was intrigued by the recipe challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Challenge which is a recipe. Now I didn’t end up following it because I just had to have more than one layer and I liked pearls better than sparkle but I kept it in mind when I started figuring out my card. Since I was trying to do the recipe I found a CAS sketch that I thought would work so I used CAS(E) this Sketch #54 as my inspiration.


I then used the other challenges below to inspire my card.

Don’t forget Doodle Pantry is still doing a fundraiser for Operation Write Home!! You still have until the end of November to grab the bundle of stamps for $5.00, we’ve already raised $339.00! Let’s make $400….we can do it!!!

Cute Images to help raise money for OWH


Doodle Pantry is sponsoring OWH and also raising money for OWH at the same time!!  Laurie created 2 sets just for OWH that would be cute for Miss You cards. OWH is ALWAYS in need of these type of cards….cards that soldiers can send home to just let their loved ones know they are thinking of them. You don’t have to make OWH cards with these images but they would love if you did!



Both sets bundled together for $5.00 and OWH will get about 70% of the profits from each sale during Nov 10-30.

On Dec 1, the sets will be separated and priced individually.  They will continue to fundraise for OWH, but at a different rate after Dec 1.

I made a card with the ice cream from the the Miss You Set! But check out Doodle Pantry Blog for inspiration from the team….you will be WOWED!! I also used the sketch from the OWH Challenge.


I loved this saying because I will tell my husband that I love him more than Ice Cream or Chocolate or Pepsi…which all rank pretty high on my list! I used glossy accents on the ice cream to make it look wet like real ice cream. The cherry and whip cream are pop dotted to give them dimension. And yes I used fibers from like 10 years ago!! Goes to show you just never know what you will find in your stash!!

Hope you will come play in the OWH challenge BUT better yet I hope you support OWH by buying the 2 stamp sets for $5.00….what a bargain!! You can also come play in the Doodle Pantry Challenge #40 if you haven’t already. If you use a Doodle Pantry image in the DP40 challenge then you will get Snowman Pile Up Digital Image for FREE!!!
