How Sweet It Is!

Summer has arrived in SW Florida!  What that means is we have begun our weather pattern of 90+ degree days with afternoon/evening thunderstorms.  The daily forecasts for the week are identical.  Makes it relatively easy to plan activities.  If you plan a picnic, it needs to be at lunch, not dinnertime, or you will find yourself and your food soaked!  So, with summer and picnics on my mind, I colored up this image, an ant carrying a watermelon slice, from Melonheadz Illustrations.  It was a freebie on Nikki's blog last July, along with several other ants holding picnic items.  This is the first time I've used one of Nikki's images, and I love it!  Looking forward to coloring a few more, and making them into cards (hint for future blog posts).  For the design layout, I modified the There She Goes Sketch #213.

  5. Not much says picnic more than ants and red gingham, I wonder why that is? :)
