I Scream, You scream, We all scream for Icecream!!

Good morning! What a sweet day it is as we have a lovely beautifully coloured food photo for crafting inspiration today over at THE LOLLIPOP LADIES!! A gorgeously scrummy set of gelati!!

Don't they look yummo!! I can't eat icecream anymore :( But I can eat Lemon Gelato - YUM!)
But it's been too cold here and having just recovered from a cold/ flu not the best thing to be eating... so the picture made me yearn for some warmer weather and then I always associate icecreams with the beach as when we were young and went to the beach often we would have an icecream there!

Anyway enough waffling from me... oh, speaking of waffle... those waffle cones made us think they could be made from Kraft and so we'd like you to add some to your creation as that little added bonus! So have a go, the prize on offer is a gift voucher from Mad for Markers

Check out the Candy stripes blogs to see what lovely creations they came up with and please give a very warm welcome to Mel Pizzinga our Guest Candy Stripe!

I used a sweet little beach girl image from Spesch Stamps and coloured her with Copics .. I watched Amy's fabulous colouring straight hair tutorial over as Color Me Copic and this was my attempt to use Amy's hair colouring method.


  1. Hahahaha we had the same idea with the scream thing. LOL. I love it. Love the paper bag detail around the image and the idea of having those yummy ice creams as your DP is fantabulous. Great work.

  2. WOW, check out the DP - how cool! Your colouring is amazing on this sweet image - perfect for the ice-cream inspiration. Great card Sammi.

  3. I love this card Sammi. The image is so cute and I love the icecream paper. Yum!!

  4. That's a gorgeous card Sammi!
