Thanks for Your Patience!

Thanks for you patience while I tend to my family during the last days of my dad's life and the proceeding funeral arrangements. I've finally been able to sit down with my stamping stuff and had to design my cards for the Royal Blog Tour coming next week. With those done, I still have many, many, many swaps to make in the next couple of days. Here is a sneak peak from the Summer Mini using Sweet Scoops. The colors are Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, and Pumpkin Pie. I also used the new Island Oasis DSP and Square Lattice Impressions folder, both from the Summer Mini, and Dazzling Diamonds.

Once I realized that cutting out 18 x 3 of the ice cream top was not going to be possible, I changed up the design slightly to what is shown below.  I actually got out the dread Circle Sissors Plus (CSP) to cut the Whisper White circles out. The CSP and I do NOT get along very well. I end up wasting a lot of paper and just plain don't like it (and the blade once cut me).  We got along enough for me to cut 18 circles out and now it's back in the drawer, where it is likely to stay for a while. Instead of the Dazzling Diamonds, I decided to try the new smooch spritz (vanilla shimmer) paints, also in the Summer Mini. Definitely going to have to get the spray box too, everything within a 5 feet radius of my craft desk is now very sparkly!

Again, thanks for your patience and prayers and thoughts.

I didn't think I had to have this set, but not I think I do. Great card!

What a cute card. That must have taken you long time to cut out of those ice cream scoops.

Sorry to hear of your loss. It's so hard to see a parent or a loved one suffer. I do hope he had many good moments over the last 2 years and those are the ones you remember most. Love your cards! Thanks for the inspiration, sherrill graff
