Even though CAS cards are always such a challenge for me, I enjoy playing along with the AAA Cards Clean and Simple Challenges. The current challenge is a sketch with an optional twist of including critters. Since it’s 4th of July weekend and I’m sure we will be having a hot dog sometime this weekend, I decided on GKD’s Cute as A Bug stamp set illustrated by Rupa Shevde an older red rubber set for my any critters. I also used Gina K Designs’ Perfect Plaids by Tami Mayberry to stamp my “picnic blanket” in red ink. After coloring in my image and thinking I needed to add some light blue around the critters, YIKES!!!, mistake the blue looked off so took some pixie powder and a little water on my block and lightly dabbed with a piece of plastic. Maybe I’ll call that rain because for a picnic, you need hot dogs, ants and rain!!! Quirky as I can be, I decided to add the circle sentiment “Take Out” from The Happy Planner stamp set.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Happy Birthday America! Happy Independence Day to all my American Stamp Buddies!!!
