They call me Doodlelicious...

LOL! Good morning everyone! I am posting later than usual this morning so I had to think of something to get your attention. I am actually not the only one called Doodlelicious, that is the fabulous nickname of Whimsie Doodles Design Team. ;)
I have a couple of cards from that awesome digital line to show you - Melyssa has outdone herself with these fun back to school images that will be released on August 1st.
First up:

This card was created with the latest sketch by Larissa on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp's challenge blogspot. It is a fun layout and worked well with these two images! The larger digi (pencils in a cup) is from For Teacher, the button sentiment that reads "Kindergarten Here I Come" is from School Sentiments. I thought this would be a great card to send with my 5yo DD on her first day of school (that is, if I don't change my mind and home school her because I don't want Maali to be gone all day!).
Here is a closer look:

I started cutting a bit further out from the image, it gives me more control than to cut right on the black lines where I goof a lot. Everything is popped up on dimensionals, I did the apple twice on the sentiment.
And from Melyssa's new School Bear line:

Isn't she a sweetie? She's so excited to be a big girl! (Just like Maali...Did I mention I don't want her to go to school yet?) This card was done using Robin's adorable sketch from The Pink Elephant's weekly challenge. Instead of a sentiment, I used a binder clip that I got from Michaels dollar bin. I thought this would be cute for a teacher to use on her desk after opening up her card. And here is a closer peek:

The DCWV Grade School pack is so incredible. I do believe it's my favorite line that they have done because of all the kiddos that I have. :D There is also a boy bear in this digital set, as well as a wonderful sentiment.

Don't forget - all images will be released on August 1st, be sure to stop by the DTs blogs to see all the other sweet creations made with these awesome digis, and be sure to check out the Whimsie Doodle blog for your chance to win a free new release set!

Hey Joni,

I did get your e-mail and I e-mailed you back that same night. I replied to your e-mail so it went to whatever address the e-mail you sent came from.

I wondered why I had never heard back from you about the Team stuff!!!! But Yes I am honored and can not wait to hear more from you!!!

I think you did a fabulous job creating two Back to School cards they are very cute!!!
