You Are So Sweet

Hi everyone! How's the weather in your neck of the woods as Al Roker says on the Today show? Here it has been hot and  suffocatingly humid-- more like our July and August weather--weather where two minutes outside leave you "dewey"--a Southern woman's way of saying "sweating profusely".  While I much prefer being outside than in an air conditioned room, that just hasn't been the case, the last few days, so I've been inside enjoying the AC while getting crafty.  I made a card using this week's sketch at CPS.



Using  A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge, I cut the ice cream cones in different colors and then paper pieced. I stamped the kraft cone with the small diamonds from A Little Argyle with Versarmark. A cherry gem tops each cone. 
Gee, I wonder why those diamonds made me think of cool, cool  ice cream cones?

Stay cool and thanks for stopping by,

Supplies:
Stamps: Say It With Style, A Little Argyle (PTI)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento),Versamark
Paper: Kraft, Vintage Cream, Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate, Pretty Pastels(PTI)
Other: Cricut, gems

  8. The weather here is in the 80's again. I like it hot but thankfully we don't have the humidity to go with it.
    Cute card. Love the ice cream cones.

  9. Your card is so pretty! I love your colour mix it *is* so 'ice-creamy - and that font looks fabulous with this! I also like your idea of being 'dewey' I'm going to share that one with my girls! It gets pretty hot here too. You've started a new family cliche! :0) Thank you!

  14. I haven't heard 'dewy' before although I have heard 'glow.' I'm glowing. I have two daughters who work at DQ, we get waaay too many of those cones in our house, but not as pretty as these!

  15. Cammie, I just love the "waffle cones" and the matching background! It is a good thing those ice cream cones are inside otherwise you would have to make them "drippy"! :-)

  16. Cammie this is a really cute card. Very creative with the argyle on the ice cream cones. My favorite part of the card though was the stitching in the corners. What a cute touch.
