Doodle Pantry Quirky Bat


It's new release day at Doodle Pantry!
Laurie has out done herself again this month with fun digital images and papers!  I chose Quirky Bat for my first new release card sample in September.  

This cute little Quirky Bat comes as a pre-colored digital image as well as a line drawing you can color yourself.  I loved the chocolate color of the bat so I used the pre-colored version and patterned papers from the Quirky Bat set as well as digital paper from Spooky Wreath.  The Spooky Wreath digital stamp set is a free with purchase set for the month of September you won't want to miss out on!  

My layout is the Operation Write Home Sketch #83.  I struggled with this one!  The sketch shows a circle where I used a Spellbinders Oval and I just had to add a sentiment, that took me awhile of turning and turning and turning the card before I figured out exactly where I could put it!  That's what the sketches are for though, challenging inspiration.

I hope you'll stop by Doodle Pantry today and see all the wonderful new releases and sample cards our design team has made.  I know I'll be making more fun cards this month with cute Doodle Pantry digital images!
