Get Your Pickle On!

This is my second sample that I created with "Veggie Stew", Clear Dollar Stamps' soon-to-be-released stamp set for July. I had already stamped with the carrots, broccoli, peas and tomatoes, and I thought to myself, "I've got to stamp with that pickle!" Then what to do with it???? LOL My brain was spinning and spinning and spinning...then I remembered that I had these two cute Clear Dollar Stamps' mice, Marcy and Marvin in my stamp stash! And Voila! The wheels kept spinning -- I just had to put Marvin in the Pickle! And then had to make Marcy look astonished that Marvin was in such a pickle! I had so much fun making this card with all the fun colors and the fun flavor, and the fun theme! Who knew that a pickle would bring so much joy???
