Polka Dot Ice-Cream...


Happy Monday! I can say that and really mean it when it's the middle of the summer holidays *wink*

I'm taking yet another short break from the addictive viewing of the Olympics (I can't believe how well Team GB are doing!) to share a card to cool down after the excitement of the past few days:

What's the scoop

Well I can't think of a sweeter way to cool down than with a calorie-free ice cream *wink*

This card features some simple paper-piecing of the set, One Scoop or Two? and a wordy-debossed background to tie in with the sentiment. I know polka dot ice-cream doesn't exist IRL, but I have a feeling it would be delicious if it did!

My card is based on the August Sketch Challenge at The Craft's Meow. 

Feel free to join in with us this month, you don't have to have TCM Stamps to play along, and participating peeps have the chance of winning a TCM stamp set of their choice (however, if you do use TCM stamps, you may win an additional 15% discount on an additional TCM set of your choice!)

Calorie-free ice-cream break over. Thanks so much for popping by today! Now resuming essential Olympic viewing! :)

Catch ya later!

Love the gorgeous impression plate in white on the background...just the perfect amount of texture to highlight the cool cone :)

Gorgeous card. That impression panel is such a great touch. So is the twine. I have to get your ice cream set. Soon!

You might consider Bubblegum Ice Cream as being polka-dot ice cream... Ames, love everything about this card CAS and with ice cream on it, what's not to like. Love your debossed background.
Enjoy your holidays and your Olympic watching.
Thanks for sharing your talents.

Cool, serene and ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Wow Aimes, do you ever get tired of being absolutely fabulous? I love the way your twine ends with the cone, and the understated pearls. Perfection.

it was definitely an ice cream kind of day here, Duchess. We went fishing as it's our long weekend so Tony had it off. Didn't catch anything, but had drinks, books and sunscreen. That's all we needed! LOVE that embossed background and I hope that's a sugar cone :) I'm watching Piers Morgan right now. Can I be an honourary Brit and bask in the glory of all your medals? Hugs :)
