A Quirky Reminder. Ants Rules OK! (BBQ's and Picnic's)

Hi Quirky Bloggers! It's that reminder time again about our BBQ and Picnic Challenge. You have another week to come and join in!
I'm sort of not here, so I'm not sure what I've managed to upload, but there should be a card with an ant on the front!  Our lovely sponsors are Crackerbox Palace  and the images I've used were supplied by them! If  I'm back in time ~that means back from where I am now, not actually going and coming back in time... but that would be fun! ~ there will be more pictures of my creation..if I'm not back then there'll only be the one picture of the front! 
A bit boring, but the inside's fun so call back when my batteries are charged! I've used Pink Petticoat papers and the freebie gingham I linked last week. The ant, flowers and sentiment are from our sponsors. Pop over to Quirky Crafts and see what the others have come up with this week!
I'm back... and as promised here's the inside of this weeks Quirky Crafts DT card.I admit, it did take me awhile to workout how to add the pop out! 
 I still haven't managed to get paper. Honestly, a crafter with no paper, that's unheard of! So I've been using up all my 'bits'. Except for the sky (PinkPetticoat)  I've printed that onto some decoupage paper I found, bought from Trago Mills down in Cornwall. We haven't been there for ages. It's what I would call brochure paper, it's quite thin even though it's 'glossy' 228gsm from docrafts, Papermania. 
last weeks Picnic card
The inside of the card is a little bit 'fat' as I've used another card to make the pop out and then covered that with the backing papers. The green paper I've used as grass come from Humphrey's Corner, a Decoupage and paper Pad, which was free a while back with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine. (another thing I 'found' while trying to 'tidy up') Here's a picture of my last weeks picnic creation. That was an easel card with the other bit stuck on the front to make the 'table'.  This latest card has the pop out square and then a sort of 'lid' for the top and tablecloth, which folds down over the top. All the images are from our fabulous sponsor, Crackerbox Palace.

  6. Lyn, I like how the ant is holding up the saying. I think the pink and white looks like a picnic cloth, it looks like summer.
    The inside is so creative! I love the picnic and pop out. It's cute how all of the ants have watermelon. Very nice card. Hope you don't mind I share the cards on our blog.
