Hi everyone!

I'm back! Thanks for hanging in there while I took a much needed break. 

My card for today was made for this week's CAS Splitcoast challenge.  I needed a birthday card for my grandfather so I tried to keep this sort of on the masculine side (no ribbon or glitter).

This week's CAS challenge was to create a summer themed card.  Well, my family just loves to go for ice cream in the summertime and so that was my inspiration for my card.

Hubby just bought me this Martha Stewart ice cream punch yesterday and I couldn't wait to use it.  I really want SU's Sweet Scoops stamp set, but I guess this is a pretty close substitute.

It might be hard to see in my photo, but I used the dotted background stamp from the SU set 'Looks Like Spring' to stamp on my ice cream cones.  It sort of gives it the true ice cream cone effect.  (If you click on my picture you will be able to see it).

For my stamped chocolate chips on the ice cream scoops I used the splatter stamp from SU's Itty Bitty Backgrounds and my sentiment is from SU's Crazy for Cupcakes.

My background is embossed using my Cuttlebug and Argyle embossing folder, again I tired to mimic the ice cream cone lines.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check back tomorrow, I made a recipe page that I wanted to share and I used this same ice cream punch!  Have a great day!
