ccc #57 ~ You're Invited!

Well hi there! Hope your week is off to a good start. I spent the day cleaning up and reorganizing my stamping supplies. It always feels so good to get things back in order then try to find ways to make my storage work better for me. After everything was tidy I felt the urge to create!! I decided to go quick, clean and simple making this card for the new CASology challenge. Our cue word this week is picnic.



My first thought...ants! I started with a 4x4 card base. The focal panel is a bit small and adhered to the card with foam tape. I've had this cute little fella by G-Rated Rubber Stamps for an eternity and decided to get him inky again. I just love his look of determination! His teeny wagon has been filled with many things over the years. But with the picnic theme I thought my DeNami watermelon wedge was a good choice. It's popped up for interest. The itty bitty grass from Art Impressions was stamped four times with leaf green ink. A simple PTI sentiment makes this a cute little invitation that's easy to reproduce.

I'm happy you stopped by for a visit! A big warm welcome to a couple of new followers!! Thanks for joining me on this blogging journey of mine! Please stop by tomorrow for a DeNami product spotlight. ~Lisa

I'm also entering this in to a new to me challenge called Addicted to CAS. My friend Geri turned me on to this one, thanks Geri!!
