Carolina Girl (Cely)
.... the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

Boy, how many times have I found this to be true!!!   Maybe that's why I chose Digging Ant from Doodle Pantry to create a card this week.  My momma always said, "Your mouth is your own worst enemy"! LOL 

I made the shovel and pick axe svg.  If you live in SC or Georgia, the pick axe is a tool shed staple.  It's not called the "red hills of Georgia" for nothing.  Our red dirt is more like "red clay". (The sky background is hard to see due to lighting, but great tutorial is HERE.)

Supplies: copics, stitching, pop-ups for dimension, spellbinder oval die, Silhouette grass, made green frame using Silhouette shapes, A2 size.

You can purchase the svg set for $1.00.  It will also come with .studio files.  Contact info is at end of "profile".

    Cely, I wish I had a machine so that I could use all the adorable SVGs you make. I'll content myself with the fabulous inspiration I get from your cards. I adore this one! Of course, you already know that I love all the Doodle Pantry ants but the sentiment on this one is perfect! :-D
