Hello Friend!

I had a left over popsicle die from my other two cards and simply could not waste it!
It was too cute and in my favorite flavor.......cherry!
It was colored with Copic markers and given a bit of sparkle.  I added a teeny flower, leaves, and gold string. I colored the yellow and orange panel with Copics and heat embossed the sentiment using gold Nuvo embossing powder. 
The "cracked" back panel is an old retired JustRite stamp that I stamped in orange.  
The final layer is a Spellbinder's die that I adhered to a light blue panel.  I went a little a lot nuts with the glitter!  
My room at school is nearly set up and open house is next Thursday.  As sad as I am to see summer winding down, I am ready for my next class of kiddos! 
Have a great weekend my friends!

Sweet Soft Serve!

I hope you had a great weekend! 
We had a bit of a "Stay-cation" weekend.  
We took our son out for the day Kayaking, lunch, shopping, and a movie. The next day we hung out at a friend's pool.  I am trying to squeeze in as much summer as I can before I head back to school!
Ice cream=summer.
Am I right?
Don't get me wrong, I could eat ice cream 365 days a year, but summer? A perfect fit!
I used the Spellbinder's Sweet Treats set again for this card.  I die cut them and inked them up with Tim Holtz inks. I covered them in glossy accents and added Queen & Company's Pops and some glitter.  
I used My Favorite Things Die cut letters, inked them up and adhered them directly to the ice cream. 
I used Gems from Queen & Company and coordinating card stock behind the image.
For a final touch, I tied white tulle to the top of the card. 
I appreciate you stopping by today!
Enjoy your day!
