Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Here is a fun card that I made this week at My Paper Crafting! :)

Who couldn't resist this little ice cream bear on a hot summer's day! ;)
This is the first time that I have used this circular side step fold! I have to say, it was quite different and fun to make!
Have you checked out PCW's digis lately?!?! Melin has been working really hard coming up with some new digis and cut files for you! :) Like this wonderful bear with ice cream cart! It is a new release that will be coming out tomorrow! :) This is a "SNEAK PEEK"!
I am always trying to come up with different fun ways to show these adorable digis! Hope you like what I came up with this week!

JustRite Friday Challenge #101 - "Christmas In July"

I hope you are having a good day! :)

I think JustRite's Musical Notes Labels Twenty stamp set is one of my favorites! I just think there is so many ways to use it! When I first saw it, I thought of Christmas straight away! Yet, it would make a wonderful thinking of you, or even a wonderful sympathy card, etc! I added JustRite's Deck The Halls ornament stamp in the middle of my card to finish off the look I was going for!
It's nice to have a Christmas in July challenge at JustRite Inspiration! I have one less Christmas card to make when the time comes! ;)
Hugs, and happy crafting to you!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge- #115- Lets Take a Trip

At My Sheri Crafts, we were asked to make a project that has something to do with traveling. It could be a mode of travel, a destination, reason to travel,etc!
This was a very fun card for me! My hubby rides a motorcycle and always wants to bring it on trips with us when we go on vacation, lol! We do own an RV, but he likes to bring it along for joy rides! He is crazy, LOL!

Vacation Time!

Hello again! Happy Friday to you!
Today at My Paper Crafting I shared two cards that I made! The first card I made, I used the stair step fold as the base of the card!
For the sand, I tore the paper first, and then I used a piece of a sponge and used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed Ink!
I used 3 PCW digis! The little boy with the squirt gun is a "sneak peek" that will be available starting this Saturday!

My daughter and her family are headed to the beach at the end of this month so I thought I would make this card for her! :)

 I was trying to think of another way to use this back pack bear digi besides using it for back to school! The first thing that came to mind is kids getting ready for vacation! I know that when my kids were little, they were lost if they didn't bring their back packs with all their treasures in it! We didn't fly much, but we did go traveling in an RV a lot! :)

I hope you are having a great summer!!! :)
Hugs, and happy scrappin to you!
