Mr. Smoothie & SC239

Okay, I am super excited to show you this'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 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 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 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!

WOWSERS! This is AWESOME! We all scream for ice cream!! We have an ice cream truck and he comes by 3 or 4 days a week at random times! So far the kids have resisted...but they have their own moola...have at it, I say! :)

Hey girlfriend! Hope things are good. We have survived several very long days so far, but the boys are having a blast!

Love your card - too funny that we just had this conversation/experience with the ice cream truck and this image comes out!!! Love the sentiment too! Hope all is well at home...
