3 Teacher Thank you cards

Using the new products at Doodle Pantry,  I've made a baby card and 3 teacher thank you cards and included a Dove chocolate bar with each card. Who doesn't love chocolate?  The teacher's seemed to appreciate them, so that was nice to know.  All the teacher cards are easle cards.  Supply lists are all at the very bottom of the post.

The first teacher card I used copic markers to color.  I'm still in the learning process of my copics. It seems like each new image I have to color I figure something else out or at least I feel like I am getting a bit better at it.  I used the White Owl image and then a new sentiment from Twain Quips.  The paper is from the Smarty Pants Digi Paper Pack.
Here's my copic list for the Owl card and a close up under that:
 Close up:
Second teacher card uses the Big Bear Hug pre-digitally colored image (I did not color this one, I printed it out) and a Twain Quips sentiment. 

Finally, the third teacher card uses the pre-digitally colored Gazania image (I did not color it, I printed it) and a Twain Quip.
I also made a baby shower card, you can see all the details for that one on my personal blog HERE.

NEW! Seahorses in color, Twain Quotes, and Kid Toys

School is finally out!   My kids are excited, but now I have to keep them busy.  A little more work for me, but I am hoping to make their summer fun, as well as their birthday party. I have TWO summer birthdays a week apart... hmmm.

I have a few new products today, because I needed them for personal cards. I'll be sharing my cards in a separate post later today.

The first set is some Mark Twain quotes called TWAIN QUIPS. Last week, for teacher thanks you cards, I needed some Mark Twain quotes to go on them, so I made a whole set of Mark Twain quotes with a few digi papers BRAND NEW today!
Also new, is the DIGI COLOR version of an image that I drew years ago and was only available as outlines... until today!  The Seahorse Habitat Color Plus.  You get 3 colors of the Seahorse, and then the color habitat scenery and then you also get bonus combination images of the seahorse floating in front of the habitat scenery.
A new Digi Paper set called SMARTY PANTS DIGI PAPER- I loved the color combo in the Twain Quips set so much that I decided I also needed a digi paper pack using that combo, and what was awesome was that the combo worked PERFECT for a baby boy shower card that I needed to make for my niece.
Next, the image I wanted for the baby shower card (it's going to be a boy) was the cute little monster truck from the Little Boy Valentines except withOUT the hearts in it.  Instead of digitally erasing the hearts, I decided that there may be others who would want the valentines images without the hearts... So I took all the Little Girl Valentines and Little Boy Valentine images and removed the hearts from the images and made a set that includes outlines and color images! 
Here it is, called KID TOYS!
This new set, KID TOYS does not include any digi papers, and the reason for that is because the color versions MATCH the papers in both Valentines sets, as well as several other digi paper sets that I have at the shop noted on the preview image above.  Chances are, you might already have digi papers that match the color images in this set, so I opted to leave papers out of this set and make it a lower price for optimum customer value.
Thanks for visiting us today and I hope you enjoy your day.
