Sweet Summer Treat

This week's Bitten by the Bug Challenge was to use the ice cream cone cut from the Indie Cartridge. We also got the opportunity to use these pretty crocheted flowers from Paper Blooms. The one I had was originally white and I wanted to "dirty" it up a bit. So I sprayed it with walnut ink and then ran it under water. Once dry, it looked more vintage looking and matched my DP better. The paper is Basic Grey's new Pink Lemonade. (yum!)

I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap inks. The sentiment is by JustRite. The cone was glitzed up a bit with Martha Stewart's black glitter.


For your chance to win some pretty crocheted flowers go HERE for info! : )

Off and running this morning. I have tutoring first, then I need to go to Party City for balloons, one more tablecloth, and then to Jewel for Cort's Hannah Montana cake as well as ice. My husband just informed me that the coolers are buried under boxes of clothes in the basement............great. So I guess I better get a move on.......

Have a great day!!!!
