Happy Summer!



Ants!!!

 Yikes are they a pain, but oh so cute on this little card! I made this fun little summer card with a mini Lawn Fawn stamp set named Happy Summer from Inspiration Emporium.   I embossed my kraft cardstock, added  rows of watermelon slices and those darned ants, finished it off with some ribbon and the sentiment. Watermelon is about my favorite food in the whole wide world, so I have to LOVE this card!

Those ants remind me of a story...

When I first started stamping, I had friends that would make their cards and when they made a mistake, they would stamp a little ant close to the mistake-sort of like their mistake "signature".  We always looked forward to the little ants!

Summer is getting closer-can't wait for those sweet watermelons-can you???!

Perfect example of a CAS card. Love It! Yup, I have had my share of Fire ants and sugar ants. One bites and the other is a nuisance but they are so darn cute on cards.

Awesome card, Sue, love how the watermelons look like scalloped trim...and the ants, so cute. Had a delicious watermelon last week!
My sister bought a whole one and we split it, so good.

Hugs

Oh, how cute! What a fun way to clean up an "oopsie" (the ant story, that is!). I think they are adorable, but I do agree that they are quite the pain, being so small and all. Great card, though! I love those watermelon slices. Mmmmmmm.......I can't wait for the sweet melons to be available, either!

Cute card...and the ant story is cute...if I had to do that to cover a mistake...I would have cards with whole colony of ants on my cards...smile.

Super Fun card. - I have to say though we have had a huge problem with ants in our house the last 2 years so I'm not overly fond of the critters. As for Watermelon...It makes me sick (truly it does) so nix on that as well but I do love your card.

Those ants are making me smile, which is usually not the case in real life. Loving the peek inside too. Love this card!
