Everyday’s A Picnic!


Hi everyone!

It is time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop. If you didn't hop onto my blog via Christi Thorsen's blog then you might want to hop back over to the very start of the blog hop which is at Christie Ortman's blog.

This week our challenge was issued by Christie Ortman who challenged us to create a card using fun foam. It is been soooooo long since I used fun foam and I only had one color which was a yellow, which didn’t look all that nice. After some thought and looking through my collection of dies I decided to cut out the fun foam using an ant die I have. After cutting out the ants I then used my copic airbrush system to color my fun foam black.

Of course what goes with ants but picnics …. so I used Paper Pretties Every Day Picnic set to create my card.


Want to play along with us
