The weather has been unseasonably warm in the realm as of late, everyone finding it tough to cool down. The Lady Commander of Copics and I decided to pack a little picnic and take my direwolf and her daemon feline to the lakeside to play in the water. We spread out a blanket and broke into the watermelon slices Angela had packed. As soon as I bit into the first piece, we were ambushed by giant guardian ants! Luckily a Guildy never leaves home without a full arsenal of weapons.
I had so much fun making the first post-it note holder, I was delighted when a coworker asked me to make one for her. Well not for herself...she had purchased this card from me and when she saw the cute bear post-it note holder I made, she requested a watermelon one to go with the card she was giving to someone. Phew...that’s probably a whole lot of information you didn’t need. Moving on...
I cut the watermelon out using the Doodlecharms cartridge and added some shading with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. The cute little ants I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Happy Summer” set.
On the inside top flap I stamped the sentiment using the My Little Shoebox “Oasis” set. I then stamped some more of those adorable ants around it. I used the magnet strips on this again to keep it closed, which gave me enough experience to level up my metal magic.
I went through the pad (being careful not to bend it this time) and stamped some ants throughout. I
stole borrowed a stack of post-it notes from the wagon repair shop, where I work to make some extra gold coins, so I will be making a bunch more of these cute holders!
This colourful craft will be taking notes in the following challenges:
Despite their menacing name, the guardian ants were quickly dispatched by the Lady Commander and I. I didn’t even have to use a single tonic potion in the battle. Hopefully those baddies learned not to invade our picnic again!
