Have A Sweet Day!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Hi everyone!

Do Tuesday's drag on for you as much as they do for me?? I very much dislike Tuesday's for that reason! Unless, of course, I have something to look forward to on a Tuesday....like sharing a card with you all! :) 

One of the cards I worked on this weekend was this one using the recently released Ice Cream Lucy from All That Scraps!

Did you check out the size of that ice cream?! Wouldn't that be one heck of a treat!? lol We have a favorite ice cream place we like to go to and I never get anything but Caramel Cashew Chip - it's absolutely heavenly! It's a good thing the drive there is over a half hour! lol
If you can't tell, I had a little fun with this card! I've always admired the collage type cards, but I've never really attempted one, so I decided it give it a bit of a go this weekend. I think I threw in everything but the kitchen sink on this one! Ice Cream Lucy was colored with my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush. Her hair was colored using Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. To make the base, I used a bunch of scrap paper from Scenic Route, MME, Sassafras Lass, Crate Paper and October Afternoon. I made the tag from kraft cardstock, and stamped a sentiment from Amy. R.'s Sweet Sentiments on it. Then I used PTI's Heart Prints die and some decorative scissors to make the hearts. The sweets ticket was created with the ticket stamp in the Sweet Treats Logo's set and the small ticket die. The scalloped border was made with MFT's medium scalloped border die and I finished it off with some Twinery Baker's Twine in Maraschino and a button. Oh, and I couldn't help it...I tucked a doily in between Lucy and the tag!

I hope you enjoy looking over this card as much as I enjoyed making it!

I'll be back Thursday with a surprise! ;) See you then!
