Okay, I am super excited to show you this card...it's Mr. Smoothie from Sunshine Stamps...isn't he the cutest.
I used SCS Sketch #239 for this card, and that made it a whole lot harder...of course, my sentiment didn't help at all! I'm not sure if I'm having more fun making the card, or finding "outside of the box" sentiments and sayings to go with them. I think that's the best part of digital scrap booking...I can make my image bigger or smaller to fit the sentiment and card. I seem to be on a bit of an encouragement card kick these past few weeks, but I've got a wedding card and a birthday card ready in the wings. On this card, I used paper from DCWV The Sweet Stack...so nice cause the stripes down the left side are glittery...although I'm not sure you can tell from my picture. Of course, Mr. Smoothie was coloured with my copics.
Funny story about the ice cream truck...I never saw it as a kid. I grew up in small town Northwestern Ontario where ice cream trucks just didn't exist. However, where we live now, he drives by every Sunday at about 4:30pm...you know, just as the kids are starting to ask "What's for Dinner?" LOL! We weren't expecting him the first time...and then were surprised to see him the 2nd time, and by the 3rd week we'd caught on...so if you're looking for me about 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon I'll be in the basement playing board games with the kids!
