Ants in a Picnic Basket...& a meet-up!

Hey all! I'm sorry I didn't have anything to share yesterday. I wanted to participate in the Ways to Use it Challenge...until I saw what the challenge was and realized I don't own wire. Oye! So anyway, I was jonesin' to make a card today!

This is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #50 that she just posted this a.m. Awesome sketch!! Thanks Beate!!

The inside of the card includes an Apricot Appeal strip across the bottom with the ladybugs from Garden Whimsey stamped all the way across. I wish I had small ants to go with this WS image, but I don't so I had to find something *else* that would fit the picnic theme. Are the ladybugs okay?? I also wonder (now that I'm looking at the pic on the screen if I should have used a red strip on the inside versus the apricot...hmmmm). Oh well, it's done. The Apricot panel behind the main image is up on dimensionals.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Whipper Snapper Ants in a Picnic Basket, SU Time for You (sentiment), SU Garden Whimsy
Paper: Papertrey White, Textured and Regular Apricot Appeal, Basic Black, Textured Real Red

Wanna hear something really exciting?? I'm going to meet up with Wendy (weebeestampin), LeAnne (Leanne Pugliese), and Jen (jetstudio29) tomorrow for some shopping!!! O-M-G, I'm so excited to finally meet these incredibly nice girls. We're all taking our cameras so be sure to check back this weekend for pics!! {smile}

Cute card! I've said it before and I'll say it again, you're genius for finishing the inside of your cards! It adds so much. I just took your idea and ran with it on my DH's anniversary card. It added so much - of course, I forgot to take a pic before I wrote in it! TFS :)
