Hello sweet thing...

Hey, hey, hey!

We've got a Review Preview of the CC Designs June release over on the ATS blog today and I chose to showcase the cute new Hawaiian Birgitta on my card. But instead of going to the islands with her I decided to just make Birgitta a sweet summertime girl, enjoying a picnic in the park. And it was as simple as putting a new flower in her hair! ;)
That and pairing her with some fun watermelon paper from Jillibean Soup also did the trick. It seems like I'm on a bit of a fruit kick with my last few cards, LOL! Anywho... while I was looking through my stamps for a sentiment, I stumbled across this crazy little ant stamp on one of the old Basic Grey limited edition series stamp sets. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to add a few buggy picnic crashers to finish off the card. Hopefully Birgitta can keep them from making off with all her yummy watermelon! :)

You can check out more sweet CC Designs cards on the ATS blog today and all of the new June stamps are now available here!

Well, it's off to work I go... thanks for stopping by!

Amy this is too sweet! I love the watermelon paper. I have never seen any of the Jillibean Soup papers in person. I think this is adorable and I think your little friends are just perfect for Birgitta's picnic. As always I love your coloring and I love her little red shoes. I am just getting to my fave blogs as I go off at 5pm and the kids and Jerry were already in the pool waiting for me. Great day! Hope yours was a great one as well. Hugs, Lisa
