Ant Picnic

I was so glad to finally get to stamp today! Im tellin ya this going days without stamping is not for Shannon! I miss my stamp table! LOL! I made a card today for Jeanne's summers end challenge and todays featured stamper challenge. I chose this card to case. I kept the layout but changed the card to a 4 1/4" sq card. I love making these small square cards! I used this adorable ant from I heart papers hugs from a bug stamp set. Hes so cute! I colored the ant using copics and added grass with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I also added some crystal effects to the ant. Its hard to see in the pic but the dp I used is glossy so my ant had to match! I used Sei black orchid dp but I cant find the striped design on the site.


We went to a family reunion today and I hope to finally be able to visit some of my fave blogs today. Maybe after this past week Ive finally got my routine down and I can squeeze some stamping and blogging time in there!LOL! Since Ive been such a bad blogger lately how bout a little candy?!?! I havent had any blog candy in awhile. Leave me a comment today tellin me your fave image from the Hugs from a bug set and I will pick a winner on Friday Aug 21. Have a great day!!
