Berries, berries, berries... (1st posting today)

NEW RELEASE DAY and CHALLENGE
at Doodle Pantry

WOW!! I'm now with Doodle Pantry as part of their Spring/Summer design team.  I look forward to the next 6 months. 

So many wonderful new releases today....how does one choose!!! I jumped on the Strawberry Ant set and made a "telescope"card.  I incorporated one of the DP papers, married several strawberries, and joined the strawberry with the ant and the sentiments as the topper.

Copics, stitching, button, twine, die cuts, brads, and my awesome Cameo helped me create a card I'm very pleased to send to a friend.

Head to the Doodle Pantry Blog Challenge and join the fun. See what other inspiration the DT has waiting for you.
