Something Old, Something New, Something For Everyone

October 1st and I am so excited to share with you what is going on at Doodle Pantry.  Many of you already know that Clearly Digital Stamps (formerly Clear Dollar Stamps) closed their shop.  Laurie Wilson's digital sets are now in the Doodle Pantry shop.  So not only are there NEW sets for the October release but "new" sets from CDS.  There are 42 new sets available as of this morning!!!  42 besides the October Release!!!  You just must take a look here.
Here are a few cards I made with one of the new October released sets and some cards with one of the formerly CDS sets.  Long post - but make sure you get to the end where I will tell you about the SALE as well as the new challenge rules.
Many of you know I have three grandchildren from Ghana.  Here is a pic of a Ghanaian basket I own:
Beautiful.  So you can image how jazzed I was to see this new set that Laurie drew:
I used the lined version to create this card, coloring one of the baskets to look like my own:
For the second card, I used a precolored basket.  And don't you love these background papers?
I put fruit and corn (from other sets) in the basket before printing.  Love how you can do that with digital images.
Okay now on to one of the sets that is now in the Doodle Pantry Store.  I used the precolored images, sentiments and digital papers that come with the set:

Gorgeous set.
Okay, now for some super-duper SALE announcements as well as how to get some FREE sets.
The sale begins today and runs through Oct. 7.   25% off the October Release AND the 42 previously CDS sets!!! As if that is not enough - "Stocking Ant's" set is FREE with purchase.  Like I said earlier, you must go look at all the new sets.  They are fab! 
The challenge rules for the Doodle Pantry monthly challenge have changed.  You now may use a digital image by any other company not just Doodle Pantry.  But if you use a Doodle Pantry image, you will receive a Free Doodle Pantry set just for playing.  Still only one entry per month, please.
The challenge goes live at noon Eastern time. 

I know this was a long post but there was a lot to cover.  Thank you for your patience. Now head over to Doodle Pantry to see all the beautiful sets.
