Some of us are mature enough and lucky enough to remember the bell or music that announced the ice cream truck was coming down the road…what a mad dash to find the coins before he arrived. Sweet memories…
So when this cute little FREE stamp showed up in the Sale-A-Bration catalog, I was alllllll over it…
The Cupcakes & Carousel Designer Series Paper Stack seemed the perfect background for this card. And a little special treatment for the awning on the truck…
The awning was stamped on the DSP and “fussy cut” then added to the card front with strip adhesive.
And a little peek inside…
Did you notice the envelope? Just a little more fussy cutting…

We’ve had a great day today (me and “the littles”) interrupted by school of course. Ice cream snack after school, bike riding after homework and then we worked on their journals…
I brought them some glue and embellishments. They look really serious don’t they?
Thanks so much for stopping by. Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
Get inky…be HaPpY!
