Picnic in the Park!

Hi Everyone!
It's Becka with http://www.creationswithbecka.blogspot.com/http://www.creationswithbecka.blogspot.com/ here today. Are you all enjoying your Summer? The kids are out of school and I have reduced my hours at work, so I have Fridays off now, and let me tell you I wish I always could work a 4 day work week because it is so nice to have that extra day. Lately, I have been trying to spend it in my craft room. But my craftroom is upstairs in my house and I don't have air conditioning so it gets really hot up there. Especially because it has been 100 degrees here. Yikes! But the swamp cooler works well and I just wear lots of tank tops and shorts LOL!
When I think of Summer, I always think about talking long walks down by the Truckee River and having a pinic in the park. But with a pinic always comes ants, so I made this cute little card.
Can you believe that I could not find ants on a Cricut cartridge anywhere, every time I searched my Gypsy it brought up pants- How funny is that? So I used these old CM stickers I had.
I used this watermelon on page 46 from the Simply Charmed cartridge. I used the watermelon on the shift, then I deleted the face on the watermelon, so I could stamp a face with a Peachy King stamp. This is how I set it up on the Gypsy
Next, I used K.Andrew Amazing You stamp set for the sentiment. And Peachy Keen Snowman faces for the stamped face.
Hope you all enjoyed my post today and make sure you stop by tomorrow to see what the other design team members make.

Very cute card. Just thought you would like to know that there is an ant on Kate's ABCs and on Nate's ABCs also on the Best Of Pixar. I used mycutsearch to find these cuts. It's all about sharing what we know with each other that makes crafting enjoyable. Thank you for all you share with us.
