You Are Cherished


Happy Monday!

I'm running late today...the 'turning of the clocks' always messes with my head!  We are now running on Daylight Savings Time, so strange!

I have a lovely Doodle Pantry card to show you today.

Stamps: Doodle Pantry digi (Iris set)
Paper: SU! cs, Doodle Pantry digi paper (Iris set)
Other: MS pearls

I whipped up this beauty this morning in about 15 minutes!  I absolutely LOVE the digi paper Laurie included in this Iris set!   The 'perfectly-placed' pearls cover the ink my naughty printer spit out onto my paper....bad printer!!!

Want this digi set for FREE???  
Just enter the Doodle Pantry Challenge &
it will be emailed to you!

Hope you like my digital CAS card today, tomorrow I have some of my other favorite style cards to show you, shabbychic & vintage!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday and thanks for stopping by, I cherish your friendship!
