I hope you are inspired by my project and are enjoying the blog hop so far!
When you are ready please hop over to
Carrie's blog at http://paperglitterstamps.blogspot.com/ and continue the fun.


When I think about summer, I think of picnics.
It seems like no matter were we go during the summer,
the zoo, the park, or camping,
 we are always taking a break during the day to have a meal or even a snack.
And were you have food...

... the ants are sure to come!




Aren't these little guys cute! I just love the little ant with the watermelon :)


I made the cut files, cut them,  and inked the edges, (it comes together really quick)
Then I added some red & white checkered patterned paper and grass.
(You can get the cut files if you are ...or become... a follower of my blog.)
The grass would not cut at exactly 12 inches so I made one long srtip and one short piece that join together.
I added my "loopy tags" and some stictched ribbon and I was done.

I also made this little card.


The cut file comes with the holes for the stitching included. I used red embroidery thread. It does not take but a few minutes to stitch up.

Here are the svg cut files and pdf templates for the ant card.

If you want the whole set of ants and picnic items just:
1) be or become a follower of my blog.

2) leave a comment here with your blog address
or
email me at papercompulsions@gmail.com

I will email you a compressed folder with the svg cut files and pdf templates.

Be sure and check back each day this week to see what fun things I have posted.
I hope you will continue the fun at the other blogs on the list.
(only 2 more to go then back to  to submit your answers to the questions)

My hint to you before you go is that one of the words is a day of the week.

Here is my letter



Your next stop:

The ants are just so cute! Sadly, we have had a bumper crop of them this year at home! :-(
I would love the files. I have a blog, but I don't do anything with it - too busy looking at yours and all the other talented bloggers out there- and if you could email it I would love it! Thanks, Jamie (I can't get this to post using my google account, so am posting anonymously.
