BBTB2 ICE CREAM CUT FROM STRETCH YOUR IMAGINATION AND A BLOGHOP! 'D-LISH!'












































Good Morning
Over a t BBTB2 this week we are creating using the Ice cream cut from Stretch Your Imagination Cart. I love this cart it has so many fab images. I designed my card using a frame from the cart to make an aperture card which I did with DS. The card is 6x6" and the ice cream has been cut at 6" too. I made the word backing paper on my computer and found this fab sentiment 'd-lish!' on Forever Young cart which has been cut at 2". I resisted the urge to fancy up my card with bling and bows as I liked the retro feel of this card so it's quite plain for me !!
Hope you will pop over to BBTB2 and see the yummy creations the rest of the DT have made and also it's that time of the month again too, time for a BLOGHOP! If you are already following the bloghop you should have reached me from the wonderful Krista's blog. I am offering a little candy for you and all you need to do is leave me a comment to let me know you've been here as well as a contact for you and I will do a random draw on Saturday 31st July. Next on the BLOGHOP this week is the lovely Lori so make sure you visit her fab blog after mine!
Thanks so much for visiting today and have a great rest of the week!!
