Picnic Bears

Let’s R-O-A-R for Day 4 of my Stampendous® House-Mouse Designs® and friends week-long showcase!  Today the Gruffies® are visiting and they’re having a picnic.  Not just any picnic, a spaghetti picnic and that’s always fun!  I’ve done a lot of camping since I was a kid and one of my favorite camping staples was the old blue and white enamelware dishes.  You know, the splattered paint looking ones.  There’s just something about them that seems to make the food taste better than a paper plate ever could.  So, you know, I just had to make their plates look like the enamelware dishes I grew up with.  It’s those little fun details that make my day!

Here’s what I used to create this card:
