Sweets and treats ....

.... I really enjoy CAS-ual Fridays - they always give us such a fun challenge.  I missed last week - the unusual shaped cards had me beat!  However, this week the CAS-ual Fridays - CFC 11 challenge is one I can play - but I'm close to deadline!!!  They want us to make a clean and simple design that includes sweets and treats - cakes, ice-cream, cookies - what fun!!


I've got a sweet set of ice-cream stamps, sadly they've not seen much ink, so this is the perfect opportunity to get them out to play!  In my stash I found a DL card that has a scalloped edge and is pink - just right!  I stamped the ice-cream sundae twice onto plain white card and coloured with Promarkers.  I attached the ice-cream image to the lovely lotus pendant and layered the ice-cream topping and umbrella!  I added a bit of sparkle to the ice-cream and a cherry.  I had a few cherries fall around the base of the sundae glass - looks delicious!!  I ran a bright pink ribbon behind the pendant and stamped a simple birthday sentiment in the bottom corner.  Ice-cream sweet!


Stamps:  Woodware - Ice Cream Parfait
Spellbinders:  Lotus Pendant (S4-269)
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Promarkers:  Pale Pink, Baby Pink, Pastel Yellow, Sunflower, Poppy, Forest Green, Walnut
Accessories:  Card and ribbon from stash




I've used our CR84FN34 colours (I've added a splash of red/green in the cherries) - see close up photo.  Do check out the blog and play along. 


That's all for now.  I'm off to the hospital with Mum this morning - regular blood test and then some shopping.  And Kathryn wants to join the reading scheme being run at the local library.  It's going to be a fun and busy morning.  Hopefully, it'll be a dry one!!  See you later.

Very effective - especially with the lotus pendant giving the semblance of a doily.
