Sunny Days

Today sure is one of those for me peeps !!

The lovely girls over at

have invited me to be one of their GDT for May/June !! How fabby doo is that !!

So the theme for challenge #169 is "Sunny Days" and to me this says ICECREAM !!

 So I made a great big one into a card !!

The Happy Hopper image is from a cute set called "Special Day" and I've have used promarkers to colour and added a bit of glossy accents for the chocolate sauce. Coloured the heart shape using distress inks to make it look a bit like a wafer.

My icecream is made form embossed circles which I have gone over with distress ink to hi light the swirls. Just free hand cut the chocolate sauce and cherry, then covered the cherry with red glitter.

The cone was cut flower pot shape and then I scored lines all over it and coloured using distress ink. The top is a strip of card also scored with lines and coloured the same and then attached using 3D foam. Finished off with some ribbon and one of the sentiments from the stamp set.

Thanks so much for asking me girls, I know I'm going to have fun and it's a great honour to be part of your team !!
