** LOVE **
That is our new challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox and it's just in time for Valentine's Day.
So what does my card have to do with LOVE? I made this card to give my hubby when I want to ask him for a lunch date. Spring is on its way (one can only hope) and when the weather turns warm we enjoy picnics by the lake. Nothings says love to my hubby like a meal prepared by me for him. It seems my mother was right when she told me that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. LOL It's so true! Guess it's a good thing I like to cook. :)

I used a pre-colored image by our sponsor - Doodle Pantry - called Picnic Ants. It is so much fun to create with and it also comes with coordinating digital papers, a variety of sentiments and a non-colored image. I used "Let's have lunch" and added "hunny" with Tim's Label Letters. I don't know if you can see the embossed clouds on the blue (sky) paper, they sort of faded into the background unfortunately. A grass border was punched with a MS punch on the green (grassy) paper. Then I reached way back in my stash...way, way back...and found stickers and cut outs that would work with my picnic theme card. I grabbed some rub-ons and added some doodles and flowers. The bee in the left corner is actually two stickers with one popped up on a foam dot to give it a 3D effect and a buzzing trail was made by using Kaisercraft black pearls.

Well, I hope you're not plagued by ants if and when the spring finally arrives and you set off picnicking! Though these ones are quite cute... Fabulous card, Lisa, and yes - fingers crossed for Spring!

I think this is a great idea for a Valentine's design. And it's even more perfect considering your planned gift for hubby!
