Hello, my name is Laurie.   I'm just a regular Joe crafter.  While trying to find digital images that met my own crafting needs, I decided to draw some of my own, as I had so many unique (weird!) ideas that I just couldn’t locate elsewhere.   I sincerely hope something I've done inspires you to go create something to bring a smile to someone else and hope you enjoy creating to your hearts content with some of my doodles.. ~Laurie

Our challenge for you this week is Thankful.  It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, so I thought it would be a fitting time to celebrate all things we are thankful for.  The design team has some super cards to share with you this week featuring images courtesy of Doodle Pantry!


Denise using Quirky Owl

Kelly using Mini Pots 

Ang using Decadent Desserts
