All You Need Is Ice Cream!

Good Tuesday Morning!
Is your week going good? My daughter spent the weekend with me and she headed back home last night. Miss her already!

My card is for today's SCS Color Combination Challenge. Kim is our hostess and she says Dessert is something sweet. I went with Ice Cream!! I picked this stamp set up a while back because I loved how Jennifer McGuire used the set and made ice cream cones with texture paste. So I colored up some modeling paste and had some fun "scooping" ice cream! And yes sometimes all you need is ice cream!


The layout is from this week's Case This Sketch Challenge #116.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 

Supplies:
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Ice Cream Dream
Paper: White, Pistachio Pudding
Ink: Brown, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, So Saffron
Accessories: Modeling Paste, Glitter

Crazy4Challenges Spring!

Happy Saturday!

Are you as ready for the weekend as I am? My daughter is on her way to visit for a few days so I am happy happy!

This is Anja's last week of the month to hostess and she is ready for SPRING. She is done with winter and thinks if we all get Spring in our minds it will come quicker. I am ready too. I think we had blackberry winter here the last couple of days. Had to turn the heat on at night to take the chill off, lol!

When I think of Spring, of course I think of flowers, green grass, budding trees, birds chirping. So "hello" to all things Spring!

I got to use another new stamp! Yeah! Love the large Something Lacy stamp. So many things you can do with it. I used this weeks Freshly Made Sketch #179 for the layout.
