A cherry on top (and not the store!)

hi everyone!

wow so where did THIS day go?!?!?!  i usually do my posts first thing in the morning!  We spent a good bit of the day running errands BLECH!  none to anywhere real fun…you know like Joanns…

blog tag

but i DO have a fun post for ya today!  i got a chance to play with one of my fave new Artful INKables sets – Spot On Summer – this set uses little buttons as part of the images – i just LOVE that!  If you have not checked out the cute sets over at Artful Inkables head on over!!!

I used the following challenges for inspiration:

Mojo – Sketch
Splitcoast Stampers – Color Challenge – muted blue, red, kraft
Aly’s Sunday Challenge – Under/by the sea – i always think of eating ice cream on the beach!
Practical Scrappers – Summer themed
Papertake Weekly – something old, new, borrowed OR blue


And here is my card – simple and fun i think!

I used some paper from a K&Co paper pad and a couple of border punches.

I stamped and colored my ice cream cone and then added a bright red button in the place of the cherry tied with some embroidery floss.  The sentiment is also from this same set.

i finished it off with some sparkling red Pezabling square acrylic pieces and a glittering red skittle.

i have been working diligently on some great stuff for the upcoming issue of Through the Craft Room Door – will you be getting a copy???  don’t miss out!  you have 2 days to get your subscription in for this issue!!!  CLICK HERE

See ya back here tomorrow!!!
