A Picnic Complete with Ants!


Summer's here in PA even if it doesn't officially arrive for a couple more days! What's better in summer than a fun picnic? This card was made with Deedee Anderson's "Life's a Picnic" digital stamp set. I used 2 pre-colored images in the set for the main image and lower border. I added some wink of stella accents to the pitcher to make it look "frosty" and added a sunshine clip to the edge. A piece of ruffled ribbon was added to the lower edge, and a punched border was added to the bottom. With the image and border taking up all the visual space, I decided to add the sentiment to the inside......


 I die cut the sentiment with a SB die, adding some matching dsp and one more little image of one of the ants carrying off the watermelon slice.

Deedee just released some new images in her store, and if you're all about cuteness, you need to check them out! Her June digi challenge is going on too, and you should check out the details here to see how you can get free digi stamps by playing along! You can find all of Deedee's images right here.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope the ants in your picnic only come on a cute card!

Well if the ants are as cute as these, they can come to my picnic any day. You did such a fantastic job with this image and that sunshine clip if perfect. That black polka dotted paper really helps to make the image panel pop. Great job, Carol. Have a cool day. We are suppose to be 10 degrees cooler today than yesterday. I hope they are right.

Left a comment on your earlier post, not sure if Blogger accepted it or not! Back to comment on this cutie, and hope it will go through, even if the other one doesn't! That WoS on the pitcher really shows up well. Cute image, and you've used it so effectively. Brillant summer card, and I love the inside sentiment too. I think that ant visits here too! TFS & Hugs

Well these ants can come to my picnic anytime Carol! lol I love the inside of your card Carol and you don't need any sentiment on the outside but it is just so cute. I love how cute these ants are and love your "frosty" pitcher! I also love picnics and I for one am loving this beautiful weather we had been having. Even the hot days. lol But now we are having some nice, perfect days which is fabulous too. Have a fab weekend and enjoy the weather-well except for any rain that may come tomorrow. Hugs, Brenda

That's a pretty big ant in the picnic basket. If an ant like shows up the picnic, he can carry the basket for me! Such a cute summery card. I agree with you, who cares what the calendars says it is SUMMER here.
