Raising the Bar is back...and I've got Doodle Pantry, too!



It's hard to believe it's August already! Seems like just yesterday I was a full-time designer for Doodle Pantry and Joni told the Bartenders we could have a couple of months vacation. 


I am thrilled to be back as a guest designer with Doodle Pantry for August...I have soo missed Laurie's characters.Today is release day at Doodle Pantry and it's a BIG ONE! She's introducing a whole new line of characters and they are adorable. However, today I get to feature School Sheep and the School Papers that match. I printed the image & papers on one sheet of SU Whisper White...it really is great for printing digi papers & images (not so much for coloring tho). I've used the pre colored version of the image, too, which makes for a really quick and stress-free card for one of the busiest times of the year: BACK TO SCHOOL. To get the "chalk effect" for the sentiment, I simply changed the color to an off white, using the .png version and VOILA! One of my daughters will be having the same teacher this year, so I thought we'd send her this card on the first day of school.


And yes, the Bartenders are back at Raise the Bar Challenge starting today. We've got a super easy challenge for you to get you back into the spirit of things... ANYTHING GOES! Just don't forget to link up on the blog!
