Summer Picnic




YAY!!! Summer has finally arrived. We have had some rain to green things up. We have had some sun to warm us up. And yes, now...the bugs are here!! And so is our LOOOOONG days of daylight!! It's officially summer!

Today on my blog is a recipe card I made for a Summer Picnic Recipe swap. I used Real Red, Glorious Green and White cardstock. My DP is some that I picked up at Joann's. I used my smallest circle punch to make the faux brads, my oval punches for the sentiment and my scalloped border punch for the green strip of cardstock. I took a small piece of the DP and covered the chipboard bowl (Maya Road) so that it would match the card. I love the ants on the DP because, of course, a picnic is not complete without ants!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
