Doodle Pantry Blog Hop

 Welcome to our weekend blog hop at Doodle Pantry. If you arrived from Georgia's blog, then you're on the right track. If not, please start back at the beginning at the Doodle Pantry Blog. Not only will you find some wonderful inspiration on some older sets, but by leaving comments along the way, you could win a $20 gift coupon to shop at Doodle Pantry.

I was lucky enough to play along with the set Peppermint. Now just earlier this week, Laurie released this set in the color version (which I cheated and used). The outlines are also included in this set, but if you prefer the outline version only, check it out HERE. For both cards, I paired these images up with the coordinating digital paper, Minty

I grew mint this summer on my deck, keeping it in a pot so it doesn't take over the landscaping. I made the most refreshing tea with it. So of course I had to create with the mint "flower," reminding me of that yummy tea, hot and iced. I'm trying to protect it in hopes it will return again in the spring. Fingers crossed.

Now your not quite done hopping yet. Go to NanaConnie's blog to check out what wonderful creation she has for you to see. Don't forget to comment along the way too for your chance to win a $20 gift coupon to go shopping at Doodle Pantry. You have until midnight tomorrow to leave some love.

I also wanted to remind you of a sale going on at Doodle Pantry. You can receive 35% off image products from now till January 3rd by entering coupon code 35BLOWOUT. Read all about it HERE.

Oh my goodness...I LOVE YOUR peppermint theme. I have been eyeballing the peppermint image in the store and love your white peppermint card. A great card for the winter or spring or summer! Beautiful cards!

Both cards are wonderful! I love the thought of growing your own mint in a container. Mine has overtaken part of my garden. lol!

Peppermint candy and peppermint flowers! How beautiful are your cards! A giant DOUBLE WOW!

Debi said...

The candy card is nice and Christmasy but I think the Peppermint card is my hop favorite. Crisp and soft. Love it. Hope your mint returns. It's kind of hard to kill.

I like how the big embossed dots mimic the mints in the first card. The colors really pop, too! But the second card is my favorite - so elegantly beautiful. I'm sure you'll still have mint next year. I don't think you could ever kill it!!
