Doodle Pantry Ants

Well I have been trying to reduce the snippet mountain before it becomes an avalanche and used all scraps to make this card. The backing card is last years christmas card where I made a hash of the front so used the back for this one, the wainscotting was created using my hougie, white scrap card and an antique linen distress ink pad. I have been watching you tube a lot and started with craft room tours and am now happily watching "stamp tv" so this card was made after watching Gina k.

I made this card for my hubbie to say thank you for all the cooking he has done since my fall, not that he didn't do all the cooking before but he has been making me cakes too lol. So why the red ants I hear you ask, well his name is Ant and in Florida if there are fire ants anywhere they seem to be attracted to him lol.

I have been admiring these images for ages but thought they would be difficult to colour but they aren't in fact they are a joy and as there is a sale on I am off to buy a few more.

You did a great job on the coloring and I love the wainscoting background. I'm not sure what a "hougie" is though! LOL

Thanks for playing along this month at the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge! Hope to see you back again next month now that you're as hooked as the rest of us on these mischievous 'lil ants!

Hello and thanks for the welcome to the playground! I'm in love with these cute little ants! I love the banner in the background - looks lovely and striking!

MaryH said...

This is the cutest card. Love the background too. Isn't Stamp tv the greatest? Love the videos. Great coloring here. I know about fire ants too, (a former Floridian!), and I much rather see these little cutesters, than the real thing! Unfortunately, they also live in SC dirt. Thanks for sharing.

That's adorable, Amanda, and great coloring! Although I am not a fan of ants, so I never thought I'd like a card with them, but this is just too cute!

Perfect for your cooking hubby - aren't you lucky when it comes to that! Not too lucky about your fall, though. Sorry to hear that. Did one of the girls trip you on the playground?!
