Sweet Treat

Hello Friends!

I know the weekend seems loooong gone, even though it's only Tuesday.  At any rate, I hope you enjoyed it.  I know that my blog has been pretty quiet this summer due to mini vacations and many other things.  But another reason for the quietness is due to a new job!!  It has been a whirlwind lately with interviews, meetings and lots of running around to meet requirements.  I am truly blessed to have this job, but since it's a brand new arena for me, I need to devote a bit of extra time to it. 
I say all this to let you know that even though it's quiet, I will pop in from time to time.  Hopefully, once I've learned the ropes and settled in, I'll be posting more often.  Ok, enough jabbering. ;)  Let's get to the craftiness.

I recently realized that 99% of my creations are girly, so I decided to make a "boyish" birthday card.  This card is inspired by one of Mendi Yoshikawa cards.  Love her bright, fun style!

I used glossy accents on certain parts of the ice-cream, and I love how it looks like it's melting.
(Supplies: cardstock; circle punch; stamps- Papertrey Ink & Imaginisce; pattern paper- stash; glossy accents; black ink)

I wanted to add sequins, but I figured they weren't "boyish" enough.  :)  Well, dear friends, I wish you a great day and I appreciate your visit.

Happy Crafting,
