CCEE1322 - It's a Picnic

Shirley ended her stint as hostess of the CCEE Stampers on a fun note -- at a picnic.  I have to admit that I struggled with this one.  I didn't have a whole lot of stamp choices to make something look like a picnic.  I pulled one image from Mark's Finest Papers and another from Stampin' Up.  I even had to go out a buy the ant!  I found him on sale at Joann's.  I did have that little scene in my head for several days before I was able to finalize it on paper.

If you'd like to come to our picnic, hop on over to the CCEE Stampers blog and join in on the fun.

I can't believe how awesome all the picnic cards are this week. I love your ants gathering, Lois (I think ants must be an integral part of a picnic...they're all over our cards!)

So cute. You aced this one. I love the checked table cloth with those sneaky little ants traveling along the edge of it.

I love the scene you've created, Lois - the gingham cloth is the perfect setting for your tasty spread. And the ant stamp looks like fun - I'm sure you'll get more use out of that one. I think straight off of what used to be called a marching ants border even though it wasn't ants at all!
