Every Day is an Ice Cream Day!

I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but here in Southwestern BC it is dreary. The clouds are out in full force (what else is new?!) and it's misting enough that it's not quite raining, but the ground is wet. 


Can you tell I'm an indoor girl?! haha :)

This card make me think of sunshiny summer days. And even though it's not like that outside today, I can enjoy the thought. Although I'm not gonna lie, this designer series paper makes me want a bowl of ice cream. (Cones are too messy. I opt for bowls. Yes, I know I'm wierd.)

I wanted to throw together a 2-minute card for my Artisan Stamp Club. I try to have a 2-minute, a 5-minute, and a 10-minute card. Ish. Anyways, this is my 2-minute card! I hope you like it! The Soft Suede pieces are embossed with the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder in my Big Shot, and the drippy part of the cone (*shudder*) is punched with a scallop circle punch out of Blushing Bride cardstock (to match the honeycomb!) And don't you just LOVE that glitter ribbon?! So pretty!

I hope you like! What kind of food quirks do you have?

Birthday Bouquet Gorgeousness!

As soon as I saw this designer series paper in the Occasions Catalog, I fell in love with it!! I love the colors, I love the patterns... It's just pure gorgeousness. So I thought I'd combine it with some of my favorite stamps that are in the catalog and the sale-a-bration catalog too.

Those paper clips! They're bows!! OK, so I love Kate Spade. I love her bow designs. I have one of her dayplanners, and these bows are going to make bookmarks. LOVE IT!

I also love the look of the huge gold-embossed sentiment on top of the designer paper. You'd think the two would compete... but I love the look. And the gold foil paper (cut with the fringe scissors!) gives it just enough to finish it off. The leaves are cut with the Rose Garden Thinlits and trimmed apart from the rose.  I really like the effect they give. And that big sentiment? I love it! It's from Botanicals For You in the Sale-a-bration catalog - you can get it FREE when you spend $60! Hmm... let's make a bundle!
