The Ants Are Stirring

Laurie Wilson,  from the Doodle Pantry has been creating some really neat digi stamps for awhile now(don't want to get the time line wrong), and now she has started the Doodle Pantry Blog with 2 challenges a month. Lots of neat prizes and freebies. When I lost all my digis, Laurie was one of the first vendors to offer me so much help. If you don't have any Doddle Pantry digis I recommend that you check out Laurie's new blog. You will be able to catch all her new releases on this new blog also.
I paper pieced the ornament and that particular piece of paper already had red dots on it, but in my zeal for extra cuteness I went around the outside edge with the Ruby Slippers stickles. If you've used stickles you already know they require a steady hand, mine wasn't so much today. Sorry for the messyness Laurie. And, you all know I'm not the do over girl because I had already printed, colored, and sponged the pink softy around the edges--I was going in the right direction. I promise I'll do better on the next challenge which is on November 26th, I believe. Don't trust me though, hop over and check out the blog for the whole low down.
3 Challenges:
Supplies: White Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Stampin Up-Whisper White, Marina Mist, Always Artichoke, Specialty Designer Series Paper Candy Cane Christmas, Stamps: Doodle Pantry-Holiday Ants digi, Ink: Stampin Up-Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Copic Markers, Suze Weinberg's Pure Glitz-Ruby Slippers, Spellbinders Nestabilities-Labels Ten, Stampin Up-glimmer brads, Sakura Gelly Roll Pen-gold and silver, Stampin Up dimensionals.
