Life is a Picnic!

This month at Heart 2 Heart Challenges, the theme is "Life Is...".

The first of these prompts is Life is a Picnic!

I always remember picnics on our way down south, a welcome respite as we all piled out of the car and found a grassy patch to eat. We would then always stop at a dairy and get an iceblock each, so I always think of picnics whenever I have an iceblock.

I found some adorable iceblock pens the other day and wanted to give them as gifts. I used the colours of the pens as inspiration for my colouring.



Here is the combination of colours I used to get the perfect iceblock.



Next, I made a small bag topper out of White Daisy cardstock and added a stamped sun and sentiment from the Hello Summer stamp set.



They went on top of my bagged up pens, and then they were finished.
