It's been a long week... I need three scoops!

It is finally Friday.. and it has been one really long week! I really wish I had three scoops!! But if I don't have the real thing, coloring three scoops will have to do for now! And three scoops with two adorable Alota Bugs is really fun! The actual name of this stamp is Lil and Gorden Bugs with 3 Scoops of Ice Cream.. one long name for one cute stamp! This stamp is my one of three of my very first Alota stamps. I purchased three stamps with sentiments a long time ago... I just loved this one, and the possibilities that it had for cards - birthday's or just pick me ups!



Well last night I was tired, worn out and just wanted to color something fun and put together a happy simple card. This is what I came up with... still want the ice cream thought :0)

My bugs and ice cream are colored with my copics - then I "topped" it with some white puff paint, and then dimensional glaze for the cherry, hot fudge, butterscotch and raspberry topping... (sorry I don't like pineapple..so my banana splits always have butterscotch instead LOL) Gives a really cool look in person, hope you can tell in the photos.


The pattern papers are from DCWV Nana's Kitchen collection, on a Bazzil Dotted Swiss card stock. Martha Steward border punch down one side, and then inked the edges of everything. Stamped out the Alota Rubber Stamp Sentiment, some flowers and finished... was a quick card.. and made me feel better, even if I didn't get the calories myself!


So do you have the holiday off today? Have special plans for Easter? The cafe we eat at on Sunday's is going to be closed, so I am going to cook for a few of those that we normally eat with... Michelle's cafe will be open for business very early Sunday morning! HA! But before then I need clean... I started cleaning out our pantry in the kitchen.. yea great timing huh? But it was driving me nuts and time to reorganize so I know what is in there.... So that is today's plan. I love when the shelves are sorted and up to date - even if it doesn't last long.

So off to check dates, and put away - with a few breaks to visit some of my favorite blogs I have been missing this week!

Great card, such an adorable image and very yummy too. Love the background papers they look fab. The card reminds me of last week when we went out for a meal, Abbie always has ice cream after her meal and where we normally go it is 3 scoops in a little sunday glass. The pub we went too served up 1 scoop in a little dish, well she was just discusted. You should have seen her face!!!
