Stella Says Sketch #311

Hello! Sure hope you're having a terrific day!

It's time for another terrific STELLA SAYS SKETCH Challenge
from Catch The Bug Challenges and here it is:

Oh boy I really, really like this one!
Who am I kiddin' ??? I like every one of the Stella Says Sketches.
Great way to put a framework around an idea for me.

Since it's summer here and the weather has been HOT lately
I decided to go with a kind of summery/picnic theme for
my Guest Designer card today - take a look:

Heheheee  - isn't this little fella cute (note: I do not think they
are cute in real life however!)?  He (or maybe it's a she) looks
very happy to be gnawing on that big ol' apple.
The digital image from Bugaboo Stamps is called "Picnic Ant - Apple"
and there are lots of other ants in the store to add to your collection as well.
The paper is by Doodlebug (so cute!) and the sentiment is from a stamp set
by Kraftin' Kimmie called "Chase Your Dreams" (another fun summer set).
I found these hexagon dies on clearance for $4 at a Michaels craft store
(whoo hoo - yes you heard it right $4!!) and I snatched them up pronto!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge #123 "Summer Fun"
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenges - twist is "Summer time"
The Pink Elephant Challenges #305 "Anything Goes"
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenges #94 - Seeing Red

Oh hey...before I forget...did you hear the news??
Christmas in July starts at Bugaboo next week - EEEEEeee!

I am wayyyy behind in my Christmas cards so I'm excited for this.
It will also be my first gig as a guest designer for the fun Bugaboo event.
I hope that you will join us - each day has a new theme!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today!
Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
