This is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Country Living Home Office and what a kewl site to obtain inspiration from too. Thanks Anne for filing in for Steph. Wish I was on Vacation :( oh well mine is coming soon. I was soooo inspired by all of the different colors of Gingham and PHOTO # 8. I just love that ant and that gingham. For my colors I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Only Summer Kisses but added black as a neutral. For my layout I used this month's DIRTY DOZEN SKETCH CHALLENGE. If you are not a Fan Club member you are unable to see the DD galleries so I highly recommend joining the Fan Club. It is more than worth it in inspiration every month. I used a set from TREEHOUSE STAMPS - Life's A Picnic. It is such a fun set to use. I bordered my white card base with the small ant bc you can not have a picnic without ants, right? I had gingham dp in all of this weeks colors except olive so I made some with my Old Olive marker. The gingham dp is punched with a circle punch and matted on coordinating cs punched with scallop circle punch. I stamped the lady ant in black brilliance then colored her with C3 and C5 copics. The apple was inked with old olive, stamped, cut out and popped up. I will slip this under the sheets for my darling hubby one day after he goes to work. He will get a kick out of it.
