and the Ants Go Marching...

Hello friends!  The weekend is now here! YAY!!
I want to thank you to all that are now following along with me through the Friend Connect gadget!  I really appreciate that!  Hopefully if I ever get myself situated enough and organized, I can drum up some yummy candy to a lucky follower! :)  I have a birthday coming up at the end of this month, so that seems like a perfect time to do it!

This is going to be a quick post and I may be back later as I'm going to do some "partying" tonight on Facebook!  I'll explain the details shortly, but for now...check out these party ants!
I've seen these CUTE little ants from The Doodle Pantry on other crafty friends' blogs and have always thought they were so cute!  Entering a challenge and being on one of my "winning streaks", I actually won some images and this is one of the images that I had picked out.
I promised that I would join in the current Doodle Pantry Challenge this month and I wanted to get it in before it got to be too late to do that!

What's cool is that there is really not much to this at all!  This cute digital stamp came already colored for me!  (I did add some white dots with my white gel pen in areas, but that's about it!)  Not only that, The green dotted papers were part of the set as well and I just printed it out to use on my design here.  The candle was separate and I attached it to this image and added some sparkle to it.  Such a quick creation to put together!
 And what ant doesn't like a fun cupcake party?!
The sentiment was a stamp from my stash in a set from Darcies.

Here are a couple of challenges I want to enter this one:
Doodle Pantry (DPDC38) - use a Doodle Pantry image
Divas by Design - anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafty - 2 patterned papers or more
allsorts - Button up!
Send a Smile 4 Kids - anything goes (Doodle Pantry is sponsoring!)

So I hope you enjoy my party ants card today!

Do you like a good party too?!!
If you are on Facebook this evening, The Stamping Boutique has a re-opening party going on!
This is where I'm going to be this evening as I'm excited to see Tracy opening up her store again! :)
If you'd like to come and party too, then CLICK HERE for details!
Perhaps I'll see you there later on tonight!

Thanks for dropping in today my friends...I might be back later...
