Encouragement Ice Cream Cards

I really wish I could get a version of this ice cream paper with a blue background!

This second card is a note card. And, YES, I have this paper in 2 different sizes – the smaller scale is from a 6 x 6 pad, the larger scale is an individual sheet I purchased separately.

Are you asking, “why ice cream today, Kathy??”

This past weekend, Offspring3 and I went to see “The Color Purple” at The Kennedy Center. It was a lovely show. On the way home, we stopped at our local soft serve stand and ate dessert before dinner!  I got the better end of the deal – she bought the tickets & drove (Metro construction zones, rail closures made it too difficult to go on public transportation), I paid for parking and ice cream.

SO…I have had ice cream on my mind!

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, paper – American Craft Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

Orchid and Pink Valentine’s Day Card

Last of the Valentines…I had to wait to be sure it was delivered.

The stamp is from Target’s $1 Aisle ($3 for 4 different “I love you” stamps) – thanks, Offspring3!

Only regret – I should have tried to form a heart with the white floss as I was gluing it down.

Another horrible mass shooting at a high school yesterday – just feeling hollow. Thoughts and prayers to the community involved.

Supplies: Stamp – Horizon Group, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Simon Says Stamp, sequins – Crate Paper, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white, floss – DMC.
