Two Doodle Pantry Cards - May Release

I always enjoy playing with the new images from Doodle Pantry. This first card is a special one for a friend who is going to the CTMH convention in California this year. For many years I went to all of the fun conventions each summer. Food allergies and a muscle condition have become a big issue for me. I had to take all of my own food the last times I went. That's not easy when you fly and California is a long drive! So I'm sending this card to my friend so she'll know that I'll miss being with her in California.

The inside message is from the Doodle Pantry set of digis called "With Heart."

This time I used the CTMH Sarita paper pack for this card because I knew she'd love the way they coordinated. I used the colored version of this image because Laurie Wilson's coloring of these golden poppies is so amazing. They'd be perfect for Mother's Day or birthday cards, too.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Come and Get It - Spring flowers
Crafty Sentiments Design - Anything Goes
Created With Love Challenge #80 - In the Garden
Going Grey with Scrap-Creations - Anything Goes
Stamp and Create - Spring Flowers
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes

My second card uses a set of "Classic Cars 1" images, which are perfect for my hubby who likes to build antique cars. So naturally this card is for him! He has an old pickup waiting for new life. Maybe this image will inspire him! I used a Spellbinder's M-Bossabilities embossing folder called "Kickin' Rubber" to emboss the gray and blue cardstocks. I robbed a Slate inkpad directly on the embossing to bring out the details. The metal and corrugated embellishments are from a CTMH Proplayer assortment.

I'm sharing this second card with the following challenges:
Crafting By Designs - Anything
Dragonfly Dreams #4 - Make it for the Boys
Inky Chicks #28 - from the heart
Lexi's Creations #115 - for the man/boy in your life
Repeat Impressions DCC#423 - for the guys
