Yes indeed it is!  Although it’s a bit hot and humid outside right now for a picnic, so I’ve come inside to blog a card I made yesterday!  This is another Lili of the Valley image that I coloured with Prisma’s, haven’t don’t such a great job with the colouring on this one I don’t think, I blame the heat lol!  I don’t know what this fella is called, I don’t have it written down anywhere and I can’t see this stamp on the LOTV blog either, so if anyone knows, please let me know.  EDIT: It’s called Just One More (thanks to Alison who left a comment)

It’s another of those 5″ square scalloped cards that i got at the stamp show when I was in England.  The papers were all free with UK card magazines and I’ve had them for a while.  The plain piece is from the aptly named Picnic in the Park by Serif.  The sentiment is also cut from that pack.  The ribbon is American Crafts, I have a few spools of this dotty ribbon in different colours, it’s really useful as it’s self adhesive, you just peel off the plastic backing strip and away you go.  The matting papers were from the scrap box and the image was cut out with a Spellbinders Labels Twelve die.
