I is for Ice Cream ... yum!

Hello Friends!
I must confess, I am an Ice Cream Junkie!
I could eat the stuff everyday but my waistline says NO!
So I'll have to get my fix another way!  How about the new challenge over


I've had this vintage image for quite some time and this was the perfect chance to share it!   I couldn't believe I didn't have any ice cream dies (on my Dies R Us wishlist now!  LOL) so went to Pinterest and found this FREE printable ice cream cone.  I colored it with my prisma pencils then fussy cut it so I could pop it up in the corner.
My sentiment was created using the Memory Box Classic Upper Case Alphabet dies.

Memory Box - Dies - Classic Upper Alphabet

My background paper is from the Echo Park 'Happy Birthday' 6x6 pad.

I used a sheet of neutral card stock from an old DCWV mat stack paper pack for the matting of my image as well as the sentiment die cut letters.  A little faux stitching with a red ZIG marker and VIOLA!  


This is a fun challenge to play along in ... I hope you'll check it out!

I too, could eat ice cream everyday but for some reason my waist line says "no" too. hmmmmm..... what's up with that?? Disagreeable body parts! Have a happy day my friend.

I love ice cream too much. Rich makes the best ice cream and there's a batch in the freezer right now that I've been trying to ignore. That image is way too adorable! Love the ice cream digi you found, too. What fun to color!
