Alota RED WHITE and BLUE Picnic!

Hello! Today I am having a Picnic! Ok so me I would have it inside with the air conditioning - it is suppose to be 104 today! But still it is summer time and a Picnic just sounds fun. And that also is a good subject to make a card for the Alota Rubber Stamps PCP Challenge that still has one week to join in - this is "my" challenge, I am the host - so I would love it if you can take a moment log in and join in on this one - My Challenge is a Red - White and Blue challenge. All you need to do is make a red, white and blue card with an Alota Rubber Stamps image. Simple! And Helene has put some new Hero Bugs up for a prize!

Now for this card!
I started with the new Picnic Bugs I just love all the details in this one! Lots of fun to color, which I did with my Copics.
For my card I started with a white card stock base. Then found some blue and red pattern papers in my stash of scraps!! I created a band across the blue paper with the red floral paper - bordering with Fiskars Apron Lace punch. The image is matted on the blue pattern paper, then again white card stock. I sewed everything down with a really pretty white thread, it shines, sorry that does not show. I added two of my MIL's crocheted flowers stacked with a Doodlebug sugared brad. And then I found this felt patch in my drawer. Don't even remember where it came from LOL!! But hey I thought a picnic with friends could be a special day!

I do hope you will join in on the challenge -

Gotta run now... Doc (the vet) is going to be here any minute - he is going to check on Rosie, check on Coffee, who is limping a little. And then geld Freddie and Pavo - yes not a good day for those two little guys! But they are already starting to chase the little girls so time for them to become "pets" and not studs.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
