Life isn't always a picnic.....

I have a friend who has fallen on some hard times lately, but things have
started to turn around for him.  He is the inspiration for this card.

These awsome trees are from Disney Classics, the picnic table is BP,
the grass and picnic font are PS, and the sun and cloud are Pooh and Friends.
The "ground with ants" is computer generated and embossed with SD.

I wanted to make a card that would certainly cheer him up; and since I am a pop-up card fan,
that was my choice today. 
I repeated the computer generated ants, PS grass, and Disney Classics trees.
The hot dog and burger are from BP.
The inside sentiment is my original composition.

I loved the idea of the ants carting off the food from the picnic!
This project turned out great....although it would take extra postage to send it.  UGH!
I think I will hand-deliver it along with a cup of coffee!
