Great Impressions and Doodle Pantry

Hope everyone had a great time visiting all of the great stops on the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop!  Then this last weekend there was the Great Impressions Blog Hop.  Check that one out if you missed it.  They have some great cards and really nice stamps.  Some of the stamps are fundraisers for OWH.  The highlight of the hop was sketch number 227 shown as a rectangle or circle.

So first I tried the rectangle and decided to make it manly for the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #47.   I really like their images for cards.  They work so well with my Silhouette.
Then I tried the circle sketch using the Doodle Pantry June Fundraiser image.  It's on sale for a few more days.  Do check it out!
A few months ago, I found a bunch of pencil pouches at the local thrift store.  They are perfect for organizing card kits.  I can fit up to a dozen card kits in one pouch.   They keep them clean and organized until ready to go.   They lay flat and make them easy to pack for class.
Another item I found useful is pet food bags.  Washed and cut, they make great craft mats for class.
Hope you are all ready for a great summer!
