Every Picnic Needs Ants! for Eureka Stamps

It's Monday, which means there's a new challenge starting today at Eureka Stamps. This week's theme is 'Picnic'.  How fun is that?
When I think of a picnic, I think of ants, so here's what I made:

I used a pre-made envelope from Fancy Pants, made a belly band with the Eureka small ant stamp (digi 1503)
I filled the envelope with things you'd need at a picnic -- plastic fork and spoon, a napkin, ketchup and mustard, even a moisture wipe. No bug spray, though, LOL.

Here's a close up of the belly band and the adorable ant stamp.

It's summer, so it's picnic season.  Make a picnic project and link up with us at the Eureka Stamp blog.  I'd love to see what you make!
I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post today, I'm close to 400 followers on my blog, and I have 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between now and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already. 
Have fun!
