A New Challenge - The Nicest Things

So, my good friend, Sandi Dailey, introduced me to a new stamping challenge a couple of weeks ago. This week I finally made the decision to jump in with both feet :) I have been wanting to play with the Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper and Quick Accents pack from the Occasions Mini. I decided to pair it up with the Nicest Things stamp set that I haven't used yet :) So, I studied the sketch (very simple and quick!!) which is this:..........

......and when I was all finished, I had this:

The complete list of supplies:

Stamp Set: The Nicest Things

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight (5 1/2" x 8 1/2", 3 1/8" x 3 5/8"), Melon Mambo (2 7/8" x 3 3/8", 2" x 5 1/4"), Pacific Point (3 3/8" x 3 7/8"), Whisper White (2 5/8" x 3 1/8"), Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper (2 1/2" x 5 1/4")

Accessories: Ice Cream Parlor Ribbons & Buttons Pack (SAB), Blender Pens, Markers - Blush Blossom, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

I just love the bright colors in all of these accessories. They just brighten my day :) And aren't these two little girls cute??! The first time I saw them I thought they were so precious and absolutely perfect to send on a card to a close friend, sister, cousin, - the list goes on :) The Ice Cream Parlor packs will only be around until the end of March so be sure to place your $50 orders here to get yours FREE!!

If you are a subscriber to my blog, you no doubt already received a notification of this post and noticed that it wasn't finished yet - gotta love technology!! I apologize for that - not quite sure why pressing the "enter" button to start a new paragraph would erase some of my typing and publish my post - go figure! :) But, I would like to thank you all for stopping by and visiting. I hope you will be inspired to join in the challenge as well. Check them out and see all of the great entries on the Try Stampin' On Tuesday blog. 'Til next time.............................

Happy Stamping,


Remember to get your mammogram!
