Raspberry Ripple!

This is my second post today, please scroll down for my Winter Wonderland DT card or click here.

There is a lovely challenge this week over at My Mums Craft Shop with the theme of Ice Cream Flavours.  Now being a bit on the dense side at times, I wasn't sure if I was meant to choose a flavour from the photo on the blog or if I could choose my own.  So I chose my own, lol.

My all time favourite ice cream has to be Raspberry Ripple, but that didn't go with my papers so I've gone for second, third and fourth faves, Chocolate, Strawberry and Toffee.

Ingredients for this yummy card are:
Stamped Image  Sweet November Stamps - Gertie
Medium  Part painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers) and part paper pieced from scraps
Paper  Also from scraps box
Sentiment  Craftword Cards
Extra  Martha Stewart heart border punch

If you would like to see how beautiful Gertie really can look in the hands of a true artist, take a peek at what Delphine did with her - her card is here.  I was lucky enough to receive this card from Delphine and it is even more beautiful IRL.  And it was Delphine's use of the stamp that had me running out to buy it!

Anyhoo, it's Friday, it's the weekend and we have nothing much planned for either Saturday or Sunday, so I hope to be able to do some catching up with you all and spending some quality time crafting!

Thanks for popping over to visit me, you really brighten my days.

Hugs, Sxx

I love the clean, simple lines of this stamp and of course anything Delphine colors is gorgeous (as I might say the same of you LOL). You two are terribly wicked enablers for someone unable to resist a good stamp! I love the paper piecing as an alternative to coloring. =) Do me a favor and give Vince an extra big squishy snuggle today, 'kay? Mwah! ~Christy
