Holly said...

why is it so cute to see ants doing different things? they aren't that cute in real life! Maybe it's because in real life they don't wear cute ear muffs! LOL! Very cute and fun card Maria! Have fun pantry cleaning!

We have two rooms just as you describe and now the weather is cooling off we can get in them to sort them out. I don't look forward to it. However, I do remember doing what your little ants did in your card image, and I do look forward to that.
