Picnic Time



CCEE1322

For the last challenge of the month at CCEE Stampers, Shirley gave the theme--It's A Picnic.
We could have certainly had a picnic around here for the last several days. We had a beautiful Memorial Day weekend and it continues with plenty of warm temps and sunshine. I'm loving it.
I've gotten a lot of yard work completed.

Not much to say about this one. I colored my digital image with Copics, stamped and cut out a little bee, and added my sentiment on Martha Stewart tags.

We hope you're in the mood for a picnic and will link your card using our inlinkz tool this week.

What a wonderfully perfect image for this challenge, Brenda. Your coloring, as always, is spot on! We're having great weather too...hope it keeps on...enough with those "frost warnings".

Benzi, I love the coloring of the basket and goodies for the picnic. I hope the little bee leaves all that nice stuff alone! He's so cute sitting on the sentiment! Great job......I'd come to your picnic for that lemonade any day!!

This is so beautifully colored, Benzi! Love the little bee.
I've browsed everything you've done while I was away and I think the graduation card is simple magnificent! What a great design. Also love both the post card and the Christmas card in navy blue and gold. Hope you'll forgive my not leaving a comment on each one. I'm just so far behind on all my visits. :-D

What a wonderful picnic meal - complete with an annoying little BEE! LOL Great coloring on this, and I'm glad you're enjoying the beautiful weather!!

Bonnie said...

We've had great picnic weather too! I wonder if I have any picnic type stamps? Love your picnic basket and as always it's colored beautifully! I need to get some yard work done besides chasing a ball for Jack! The roses are crying to be trimmed!

What a cute and colorful card. Nothing better than watermelon and lemonade on a hot day when having a picnic.

~Tammy~ said...

This makes me want to grab this basket and head out to the country side! Beautiful!

Sabrina said...

My word, if it isn't ants it's bees, seems like it's hard to have a picnic in peace. But that bread and lemonade look so tasty, and I'd love a picnic basket like that.

Lynne in NI said...

Heee, it wouldn't be a picnic if there wasn't a bee or two! Great card, love the bright happy colours you used :)

Nonni said...
