Ice creams, cupcakes and sweet treats ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I had several small piles of white snippets on my desk and I realised they were the perfect size foe these very cute images.  I stamped then water coloured them and fussy cut them so they were ready to go.  I played around with an embossed background, layout and ribbons and here’s my card …

A cute little A6 card and lots of little snippets used to create this one!
I have no idea why the camera has photographed the ribbon like that!  It is flat and smooth?!
Lots of naughty but nice things on this card!
Raspberry sorbet/ice cream = yummy!
Strawberry cream ice cream yes please!
I final look!

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

 Share Joy Challenge #46 I was inspired by the berries

I used an embossing board to score the white card

Wednesday’s Creative Inspirations Challenge #255 Extended Summer Challenge

This is another new set of NBUS stamps that I won from my lovely team mate Ruza and this is their first outing, lol!  The introduction of the MISTI has upped my stamping output and I’m trying very hard to use the stamps that I have won that haven’t been inked yet.  I’ve even got a separate box of stamps I won from our lovely Brenda that haven’t been inked yet.  I am a lucky lady to have won them!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x
