Foodie Friday & Impression Obsession & CPS

Sorry for no post yesterday...DH had a day off and for the forseeable future, that means shopping for the master bathroom renovation.  We're trying to keep the cabinets to save $$ so matching the countertop to them is proving to be a chore. I'll take some before and after pictures soon.

In the meantime, here's a little treat to cool you off this summer...DH said that after he tasted it, it was all he could think about all day.  ;-)  It IS really good! 



Can you say YUM?!!

Strawberry Smoothie Ice Cream Pie...oh, my!!  The original recipe came from SL.  You can find the recipe on a printable Google Doc at the Recipe link above.

That's the main course...now for dessert!





This is for the challenge at the Impression Obsession blog to make a card for any occassion using only IO stamaps.  That part was easy because I love their stamps!  I love that you can have your rubber stamps mounted...or not, and that they also have acrylic stamps.

I used the sketch from Card Positioning Systems CPS227.

I did a bit of doodling around the edges, the center panel is popped on foam dots and for a bit of glimmer, I spritzed some Pearl Glimmer Mist into the air then waved my card through it a few times. 

Supplies:

Cardstock - Neenah, Papertrey Ink
Ink - Memento, Copic markers
Other - White Opal Stickles, foam dots, Glimmer Mist Pearl, Spellbinders circle dies
Pin It!
