Under The Weather & Picnic Ant

Boy, Blogger has been very contrary the past few days!  It took me what seemed like forever to log on to my Blogger account to make this post.  Whew!!  I'm sure glad the problem has been solved.  I have a couple of cuties to share with you today. 

I used the Duck with Egg die and Duck Accessories to make this little fella.   If you haven't checked out these new dies, you should.  The Scrapping Cottage and Peachy Keen Stamps has partnered up once again to bring you these wonderful designs by Kathy Jakopovich, which include several stamps for different faces to use with the dies.  It's a perfect combo, and one that allows all kinds of creativity to flow.  I cut this cutie out with white card stock and colored him up with my Copics.  The paper is available as a kit and can be found at the Peachy Keen Stamps store.  This one is the Hello Sunshine 6x6 paper pack.  I LOVE the paper in this selection, and there's even brands, and ribbon to match!!!!  I added some rain dots for texture and shine to this card, and the satin ribbon gives this card a soft and pretty element.  Of course I couldn't get by without bling, so I added some stickles to the duck's bow.  The grass was done with my Martha Stewart grass punch.
 This 6x6 recipe card was one I made for a swap I was in on Splitcoaststampers.  There's usually an abundance of ants at a picnic, but I don't think many ants bring something yummy along with them.  I thought this little pot brad was so cute in this Picnic Ants hands.  This IS a really yummy recipe, BTW, so feel free to click on the image to see a larger version and copy the recipe. 
Thanks so much for visiting today.  I'm so glad I was finally able to log on and share something fun with you!  Have a wonderful day, a blessed weekend, and happy scrapping!
