Grad Hats

Good morning! Let's get right into the new release from Doodle Pantry...shall we?

This month Doodle Pantry is releases NINE new sets, one SVG file, and one digital paper pack! I adore DP's new releases as they always have so much fun stuff!

I get to show you a card from the Grad Hats set. Now this set is made specifically for the hats to go onto some of the fun images that Laurie has in her store like the birds, worms, etc but I decided to use just a hat and make my son's graduation card.

If you know me at all you may be asking which of my kiddos is graduating, right? Well, my oldest is graduating from CWU with a double major in History and Political Science. I gotta tell ya I'm a pretty proud mama! Anyway, I texted my son and asked him the school colors just to confirm it...crimson and black. While the photo doesn't look Crimson I think it will actually be a pretty close match. A little bit of embossing, a few little pearls and tahdah...his graduation card. I used the Critter Sketch Challenge this week for my card.

Alright, since I'm fighting a pretty bad sore throat this morning I'm going to link you up to the store and have to be on my way. HERE is the new release page. Scroll down on THIS page to see what the entire DT has made with the new images. And finally go check out the incredible savings Laurie has HERE. Remember the Noah's Ark Favor Box I mentioned above? Well, it is 25% off! Only $3.74 for the SVG, PDF's, and digital papers...what a great deal!

Now, go forth and shop!
