Picnic Fun Week!

April Showers must have flipped the calendar an extra month, because it has been sweeping across most of the US leaving its wet footprints behind. We’re always thankful for some rain in our region and It has us anticipating the days when we can head outdoors for picnics under blue skies, but why wait for the weather to change when we can have a week of picnic fun here!

Our picnic theme stamps from the April catalog have all the fixin’s for a great project that celebrates some family fun for summertime! Get ready for a week of fresh ideas starting with this original design by Fran Seiford in the Picnic Spread Stamp makes it feel like you are already relaxing in a peaceful setting with a delightful spread just short of a small feast. It’s made for a mouth watering project!

Our in-house designer, Debi Hammons created this flavorful card as a seaside picnic with some puffy clouds in her sky. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? A picnic isn’t complete without playing the game of guessing what animal or person you see in the clouds.
