Wishbone Ants

Doodle Pantry is the sponsor  of the weekly challenge over at 'Craft Your Passions' and the theme is 'Fall Colors'. Great theme and with the American Thanksgiving  this week I decided to use the  Doodle Pantry  digital stamp set 'Wishbone Ant's'.  Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends down south of the 49th parallel. Should be a lot of  wish making going on this Thursday!    I remember as child wishing with all my might while pulling on a wish bone, and as a parent  passing on the tradition to my son!  These  small kind of  things make  for fond memories  and are so much fun to do!

November 5 - 24th of this month is the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #18  and the featured product is 'Wishbone Ants' It is the complementary digital stamp set you can get by playing along with the  challenge this month.  It will be available for purchase after the challenge closes.
