It's an ALL WESTERN sale

OCTOBER 23 through OCTOBER 27,
we are having a WILD WEST SALE in honor of
the anniversary of the Tombstone shoot out at the OK corral!

Yep, that's right, on October 26, 1881, there was the infamous (and widely controversial) gun fight in Tombstone Arizona involving one of my hubby's favorite western icons, Wyatt Earp.  In fact, my hubby is such a big fan of wild west things, that we even tried to make our wedding date on October 26... but that particular year, it fell on a Sunday and we couldn't secure a reservation with any wedding places.  (Shoot!)  But at least he was satisfied with one week earlier.   :o)

ANYWAY, in honor of the infamous shoot out, I am having an ALL WESTERN products SALE now thru October 27!
Everything in the WESTERN & OUTDOORS category is already marked down 30% OFF!
NO COUPON NEEDED!  (But there is a $1.00 store order minimum)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BELOW IS SOME INSPIRATION using just a few of the products in this category:

New products and a special for NEW products

WOW, we have SO MANY products this month!   Actually, only 10 are brand new, 4 are re-colored / newly colored older Doodle Pantry products, and then 28 are re-releases from my previous CDS illustrations.  You'll want to read up on that HERE and HERE if you haven't heard what is going on there.

CHALLENGE NOTE!:  I have changed entry rules for our challenge that posts today at noon eastern!  You can submit using ANY digital company image, but you ONLY receive the featured product if you submit something using a Doodle Pantry illustration.  There are still 2 winners, and you can only enter ONCE no matter which image you choose to use.  I hope this will increase participants, but also reward those who decide to use a Doodle Pantry image on their project.  An "image" is defined as an illustration of a character or object of some sort. (If you only use a text sentiment next to another company illustration, that does NOT qualify as using a Doodle Pantry illustration.)

OUR NEWEST CREATIVE TEAM:  We have a new team of creative artists this month!!  Our updated Team List is HERE.  I hope you can visit them over the next couple days to see all their inspiration!  
ALSO, we have a guest designer for October, Lyn Tomlin!  She has been a regular participant in our monthly challenge, and a wonderfully creative card maker.  We are so happy she is sharing her talents with us this month!

OUR OCTOBER SPECIAL:  25% OFF the OCTOBER illustration releases (NOT SVG/templates) from OCTOBER 1 thru 7 ONLY!    COUPON CODE:   25OFFNEWOCT
This will include all the previously CDS image products too!  (This coupon only applies to the October new image products that appear in our October category HERE (except not the SVG files).

Now to show you all the NEW Doodle Pantry products!
ANGEL BIRDIE is the featured product for our challenge that starts today.  If you use a Doodle Pantry illustration as the main focus in your creation, you are emailed this one for free!

STOCKING ANTS is this months "Free with purchase" from October 1 thru 24!  Limited time, so if you plan on buying anything else, be sure to add this one to your cart so that it can be included free!

BEE BIRDIE - a little change from winter/christmas/fall... had to have Birdie dressed up as a bumble bee!  And he goes great with the SVG cut file that Lori McCroskey has designed for Doodle Pantry to sell!

Note: The October sales coupon does NOT apply to the 2 SVG/TEMPLATE files below.
BEEUTIFUL BEEHIVE SVG cut file by Lori McCroskey - Adorable cut elements for you to either handcut from a printable PDF or use the SVG files with your electronic e-cutter machine.

WHEEL BARROW SVG/3D TEMPLATE by Lori McCroskey - isn't this too cute for holding candies or flowers as a table accent decoration???  Simply adorable in every way!

JOLLY SAINT NICHOLAS - I have had requests for a "santa" for quite some time, but had put him off long enough.  I decided to go with St. Nicholas, since he was a real person and knew the true meaning of Christmas. 

OLD WATCH - a pocket watch has been a vintage request for a few months now, and finally got to finish it up.  I love how it turned out too, simple but just enough detail.

OFFICE ACCENTS - this coordinates with the Office Chatter set  (and now I see I missed having a coffee mug... ok then, that's for next month...!)

OLD BASKET this is great for "filling" with animals or food, or stand alone too!

CHRIST YOUR TREASURE a mini set for some really cute and simple religious Christmas cards

BLESSED CHRISTMAS COLOR+  This product is older and I did have color images before, but the coloring method was outdated and I re-colored to better suit my preference.  I have learned a lot about digital coloring since I first released the color version of this one.  I think this new version is much better.  I also recolored the digital papers to match the subtle shade differences.

CATERPILLAR MAIL COLOR+  Older image and I simply added color options and digi papers

KITTY BOUQUET COLOR+  Older image and I added color options and digi papers

HOLY LAND FLOWERS 3 COLOR+ Older image and I added color options and digi papers. Finally finished out the Holy Land Flowers trilogy with color images!

Now here is a brief look at all the products that are new to the Doodle Pantry shop, but were previously sold at the (now closed) CDS digi shop.
