Hot, Hot Summer Day’s


Hello ladies, wow.. we have had yesterday some fantastic temperatures here in Michigan. I can feel summer is definitely arriving :-)
In our town has opened a new ice cream chain called “Oberweiss” sounds very German to me and what can you say.. it has become our favorite destination when we take our bikes and walk there.

I have found this My Minds paper with some ice cream cones printed on, in my stash from last years papers… they are very nice, but unfortunately they are so wide printed that it was a challenge with all the layers so they would actually show. I wished My Minds Eye would offer more 6x6 pads for us card makers.

Stamps: Magnolia Rubberstamps
Tilda w. ice cream (Lazy Days of Summer) • Fence (Hoppy Easter open Gate) ) • You are so sweet (Lazy Day’s Of Summer)
Papers: My Minds Eye, Stampin up
Embellishments: Gems (Kars) • Flowers (Sir Stampalot) • Stickles by Ranger (Star Dust – Sir Stampalot) • Lace (no source)
Ink: StazonDistress (Vintage Photo) Sir Stampalot
Tools: handheld punches (Martha Stewart fond & large Monarch butterfly) Sir Stampalot • circle punch (2” Fiskars), Sewing Machine

Coloring: Stampin up & Ranger Distress: face: Blush blossom, pretty in pink • hair: Scattered staw, Vintage Photo, Walnut stain • pants: Pretty in pink • Shirt: Barly Banana, some going grey • Fence: Vintage photo, Walnut stain • flowers: Blush Blossom, Pretty in pink, Summer sun, Mellow Moss • Halo/ice cream: Cool Carrebian • Ground: Certainly Celery


Thank you my friends.. i hope you will find some time to do something you can relax with and enjoy! That’s what makes us happy:-)

It is way too hot here in Connecticut, but if I say this card is HOT, it is a compliment! I love the colors, and Tilda looks ready to lick that cone. My husband and I have a dream to travel the country by ice cream shops...I know where to stop in Michigan!
Hugs to you,
