Remind You of the Good Ole Days???

I love this little ice cream image from MFT-Here's the Scoop. It reminds me a lot of my favorite snack shop in Brooklyn, New York (Little Cupcake), which doesn't sell ice cream, but it set up very much like an old soda jerk shop. And yes, I realize the term "soda jerk" was waaaay before my time, but I actually do know what one looks Needless to say, this picture makes me want to head to my nearest Braum's (my Oklahoma Folks will know what I'm talking about!) As I was creating my cards, I couldn't decide which colors or sizes of polka dots looked best...I think the PINK one is now my FAV! My card base is PTI white and stamped with dew drops ink. The focal image was colored in with my copic makers and the sentiment is from the PTI 2nd Anniversary Set. I didn't even know I was eligible for this set until my last package arrived...nice surprise eh? Apparently, I bought MORE stamps last year than I thought:( After I colored my ice cream image, I traced a very light cool grey copic on the outside rim. I think it really makes the image "pop" and looks even more fun after cutting it out. I used foam tape to raise the image and also added some adhesive rhinestones in the corners. What to do with that last image?? Make another card?? Nah, lets try something fun and new...a TAG! I make a few baskets here and there and I think this will go perfect for an anniversary ice cream kit, or perhaps a kids birthday! Perhaps I have inspired you to take the kids out for a scoop or two?

So cute, Dawn, and I SOOO know what you mean about Braums -- I have one about 1.5 miles away from my house! But since I'm currently doing Jenny Craig (Valerie in that bikini...), I won't be going there for a few months. This image is as close as I'm gonna get! :)
