If it's About An Ice Cream Cone .....

Anybody that really knows me knows that I think it is a horrible injustice to eat ice cream in a bowl. Ice Cream was made for cones. Yes, even at my age, my ice cream has to be in a cone and a sugar cone makes all the better.  Well, anyway,  I love this image and we are just staying with some friends and all I had packed was some different shades of purple and of course my copics LOL. They even won out over makeup LOL. This card was made for a swap on Homemadecards group. I love purple and the girl who's name I received to send to is very special to me.  Anyway I found some shades of purple flowers in the zipper bag of my suitcase and I went into my jewelry case and found the purple centers and the heart. I also found some butterflies I had punched out for something else and put them in the case to protect them since I didn't use them like I planned :) This is a Mo image called "Lacie with Ice Cream" Isn't she just adorable.
Thank you for looking and have a blessed day.  Hugs, Cathy K

Sassy Cheryl's Cream and White Challenge

I have to tell you I love this image,  anybody that knows me knows that is what my hair looked like as a child.  Come to think of it , it still looks like that ;)  I have fine straight hair and it does not like to curl (now you know more about me huh ;)
Anyway,  I really like Sassy Cheryl's precious images. Cheryl was having Cream and White Challenge,  It is hard for me not to add color so I really had to think on this one. But I was able to only use Copics basic cream and basic white markers and had 3 shades of cream cardstock in my drawer (yes, still stamping at the foot of the bed on the floor LOL) I've gotten so used to it that I don't mind not having a stamping room except my husband can't get in and out of the bedroom when I am stamping and Cayla, my Maltese doesn't leave the top of the bed.  Thank you for looking and Happy August. This year has gone so fast I can't believe it.
Blessings to you all, Cathy
