As many of you already know my daughter Madison just got married and her and Cory have their first "grown-up" apartment in Memphis, TN... her dinning room has a black table and she has red and black dishes...and she loves glitter.... she called the other day with that excitement in her voice...she said "Guess what comes to our apartment?!?!?!... The Ice Cream Truck!!!" she sounded so like a little girl in her grown up world... I loved it.... we all need to remember how to feel like a kid!!!.... its so important to our mental health!!! .... So I just had to make her this card... and then I got A Child's Year and wow it had kids with ice-cream!!!... so this is what I ended up with!!!...I am so excited its part grown-up part kid at heart!!... I hope she loves it!.... thanks so much for looking.... Hugs, Jeannie
A Child's Year
Girl and boy with ice-cream cut @ i inches...
Once on shadow in white..once in black and once in red on regular cut... trimmed the ice-cream off the red cut so it would be black in their hands.
My Community
Mail truck cut @ 2 1/4 inches on shadow... to make the ice-cream truck.
I cut it twice on the top layer I cut an extra opening for the ice-cream truck effect... I Cuttlebug'ed a small black square to give the inside wall a different look... pop-dotted between the layers of the truck...and pop-dotted the back truck layer from the background paper.
Joys of the Season
Musical notes cut @ 3/4 inches.
Grass cut @ 1 inch on real dial size and layer feature.
Mickey and Friends
Sun cut @ 3/4 inch on shadow..
I added a roughly trimmed circle to the center.
No Ink ... I know I know a real shocker!
