Ice Cream Anyone???

Good Morning! Sorry about these last two posts being so close together in time. Be sure you scroll down to see the one below this one if you haven't already. I used some stamps I've never used before, cute ones!! :)

This card has been in my mind for a while now and I finally am getting them made!! Woo Hoo!!! I'm making cards with McDonald's gift cards in them for my 2 grandsons and my great nephew, wow, great nephew makes me sound really old, but I was only 9 when his Mom was born so that makes me feel a little better :) I want them to go get ice cream from us because they all live down south where it is REALLY hot right now. Sissy if you're reading this, please don't tell Jonas, it's a surprise :)

On to the card, I used CC Designs "Sweet Treats" set. (I LOVE this set!!) I also used paper from the Elsie collection by KI Memories, Bazzill Bling which I embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder. If you've never used these, in my opinion they are one of the most economical tools you can have. The large embossing folders are $4.99 and they make such an impact on your cards. I don't even have a cuttlebug, I use mine in my old red sizzix machine with the converter on it. It works perfectly :) Sorry about that side track, I just really love some of my tools and that is definitely one of my favorites! I also used dew drops, ribbon, a slot corner punch to make the gift card holder and little stampendous glitter stickers for the cherry on the inside ice cream cone.

I'm so excited to share these with you as I've been seeing them in my head for a while. Now I need to go finish them :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!

What a great gift card holder, Jeanette! I'm sure he'll love it. And I still can't believe you're a grandma!! ;)

Oh, yeah...before I forget, I have something for you over on my blog.

So cute, Jeanette - what a great idea to send them ice cream! And I agree - what could be better than Cuttlebug folders!

Adorable! You always make the cutest things. I had to chuckle when you said "Sissy" that is what my little sister calls me unless she's mad at me then she calls me by my name. LOL!
