FOR CUSTOMER B. E. regarding ORDER 1936

Hello!  This post is for CUSTOMER B. E. regarding order 1936.
I have turned public comments OFF for this post.
B. E., our correspondence seems to not be getting to each other through regular email.  This blog post is my last hope to reach you so that you don't think I am ignoring you.  I am not ignoring you, I promise!

I have reactivated your order downloads that you are unable to retrieve.  I have a how-to link for Word printing at the shop under the top menu.  If you are using a different program, I will need to know what that is so that I can try to find out how and help you print more than one image on your sheet.

I am recreating new zip files that only include JPG files so that there is no confusion between the PNG and JPG that are included in regular downloads, and I will email those to you as soon as they are done.

Also, I noticed you ordered an outline set AND a color set of the same product, but the outlines come with the color set, so you are now due a refund of $2.00, which I will send via paypal just as soon as I get a reply from you.

I hope this message finds you!    I am trying to help you with your order, and I thank you for shopping Doodle Pantry!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
I wanted to share this card I made for my husband using the Parrot image, and then I typed up my own sentiments in the Word document for printing it all.

I've actually had this image colored for several months and waiting for me to make it into this card.  I knew I wanted to use it for this card, he just has this adorable look on his face!
I hope the card doesn't look too girly.
I think I lucked out with the Hello Luscious patterned paper... LOL, I didn't have that paper pad when I colored the image.
A close up of the coloring.
Here's what I did for the inside.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit!  Hope you have been inspired to go create something with heart!

Creative Team Call for Summer 2012

Good afternoon!    Our winter Creative terms are coming to a close, and we are in need of 4-7 NEW Creative ladies to add to our Summer team!

But first, I need to say how blessed an honored I am to have had ALL the wonderful talented ladies share their creativity these past 6 months!  It is always a mixed emotion when selecting new members, as I will so greatly miss the ones departing and get so excited about the new fresh faces I will get to work with.  

Below is all the information about the Creative Team selection.

WHAT IS EXPECTED of a Creative Team member:
Term runs from Feb 22 through August 26, 2012
1. Communication if life hands us unexpected events.  These things happen, and I am willing to work with you, within reason, to allow some time off if needed.
2. Clear and crisp, watermarked photos of your projects.  I can help direct you, if you have proper equipment to start with.
3. At least 4 projects created and posted on your blog each month, with ANY Doodle Pantry image, however it is requested that 2 of the projects use that month's releases.  More projects are ALWAYS gladly welcomed, but not required.
4. Timing and days of your posts are at your own discretion, with the exception of the release day project, which is pre-planned with the rest of the team.  This will make more sense once you are on-board and see how we function.
5. Honesty with no sharing of images you receive for free.
6. Participation in Doodle Pantry events is encouraged, but not always mandatory.

Creative Team Member BENEFITS:
1. You receive ALL products released each month that you are on our team!
2. The moral support of a fun group of fellow crafters!
3. Special discounts on some items in the shop.
4. A free custom watermark for your own personal photos. This MUST have your name and your blog url only.
5. You get to have fun and get monthly inspiration from your fellow teammates!

HOW TO SUBMIT for consideration, the DEADLINE, plus OTHER details:
 1. Add your NAME, EMAIL, and DIRECT BLOG URL LINK to at least one previously posted Doodle Pantry creation, in the INLINKZ below.
     ~You will be emailed a submission receipt.
     ~Your email is NOT DISPLAYED, for your own safety.
2. DEADLINE:  Saturday, February 18 at 10 PM eastern time (7 PM pacific time).
3. New members will be chosen and emailed no later than Wednesday February 22 (10 pm eastern time).
4. You will not receive an email if not selected.

I look forward to seeing and reading your post links!   NOTE:  Selection is ALWAYS difficult due to the fact that many more people will apply than we are able to select, even if all applicants are qualified.   I hope you will not be discouraged, and will come back on future Creative Team calls!

Good morning everyone, today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Craft Your Passion and the challenge is anything goes... I LOVE anything goes challenges! I used my favourite guys, the ants in Critter Tops  with the sentiment from Heart Candy Ants. I created the sentiment for the inside.

 Glenda used the Flaming Hot Ants for her card.
Hop on over to Craft Your Passion, create a card and have fun. 
You still have lots of time to enter our Doodle Pantry Digital challenge #20. Just for entering the challenge (using a Doodle Pantry Image) you receive ants of your own!
