All Things Food

I think I'm finally getting caught up after our trip to Nebraska. I loved spending several days with both daughters, both grandsons, and seeing lots of other family. My 88 year old mom was so excited to see the great-grandsons. But I must admit, those boys wear me out....and I wouldn't want it any other way.

I just love "summer" food; watermelon, hamburgers grilled outside, corn on the cob, potato salad..... There's no reason we can't eat those foods all year long but they just taste better in the summertime! My card today uses Paper Makeup Stamps' "Picnic Duo" for the All Things Food challenge.

I tried cutting out the image for the first time and that's no easy task! I colored it using copics after I cut it out and I'm thinking I should have colored it first but I didn't want to color it and then ruin it by trying to cut it out if it didn't work. :) I used the Labels Two nesties along with grass paper, DP from the Summer Dreams matstack, kelly green organdy ribbon and turquoise satin ribbon, a Prima flower with a SpareParts sparkly brad and some stickles on the fairy wings. My sentiment is also a Paper Makeup Stamp from the Lucky Me Sentiment set. My talented and generous daughter gave me a huge stack of various colors of cardstock for Mother's Day which I love but that means I don't have any idea what the color names are for the cardstock.

Hope you all are enjoying yummy "summer goodies"!


  1. Awh, Carma! This is so cute!!! Love the grass you added to the picnic fairies!

  2. Sounds like you had a great week with family! I love how this picnic duo stands out against the grass with them cut out like that. I agree about summer food too, and that was our dinner last night! Yum! :)

  3. This is just precious! I love a good picnic!
