When me or brothers were young and got ice cream cones, my mom used to always say let me lick the sides so it won't melt all over your hands. We used to get so huffy and complain that she was going to eat all our ice cream!! And now, when my kids have cones, I find myself watching that ice cream melt and drip and find myself with the urge to lick the sides for them so it won't melt. And when I do, I get the same outrage we once expressed to my mom. I always get a little bit of a chuckle when I find myself doing things I swore I'd never do.
Since it is hot and muggy I thought I would post an ice cream card today. This little girl is from Stamping Bella and too cute for words. (p.s. Stamping Bella is currently running her free shipping over $50. special - I've been REALLY good and holding off this time since I haven't even inked up all the stamps I got from her last free shipping special!)
Copic Markers: E00, E31, E37, R29, YR61
Prismacolor pencil: black
Her headband is colored with a spica marker (peach - #15) and although you can't see it, the cherry on the ice cream is glazed with a sakura clear glaze pen.
The paper on the base of the card is from Stampin' Up. The button and twine are from Papertrey - I am really liking the twine from there when it comes to dressing up a button.
I can't believe that it is July 31st already. Our summer has been very weird weatherwise and I'm not sure what to expect for August! Hope you have a great one.
