Doodle Pantry Designs Christmas Blessings

I have a couple of Christmas cards to share with you today that use pre-colored digital images from The Doodle Pantry.  Laurie Wilson is the artist behind The Doodle Pantry, when I saw this set I knew it would be perfect for our Christmas cards at church.  The image was a line drawing and I could see baby Jesus blanket colored in a deep rich burgundy color.  Being the busy time of year that it is I took a chance and asked Laurie if she'd make this set into a pre-colored digital stamp set as well and she said she'd been thinking about it. 


I lucked out, Laurie colored these beautiful line drawings and I even got one in that deep burgundy I was day dreaming about for the cards for the church.  Thank you Laurie!!!  Monday my husband and I mass produced 80 Christmas cards very similar to the one above for our church and delivered them Tuesday morning.  Whew!   I'm a little behind on my design team projects, hopefully I'll catch up soon!


My second card was in the bunch I took for our Pastor to chose from, it uses the white pre-colored image.  He and his wife chose the deep burgundy colored one that I liked!

We've also been painting and updating our 10 year old daughters room for her so I'm distracted by that too.  I had to stop this morning and help my husband build a closet organizer for her.  He didn't need my help but I couldn't help myself...  I had to go in there and help put it together with him, I like to make stuff - lol.   

Oh!  We have a new Midweek Throwdown Challenge today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, "Getting Creative With Ribbon".  Cynthia made our sample cards and they are awesome!
