If I could make it better, I would...

Good morning! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and for those celebrating, a very happy Easter Sunday. I spent most of the day at work but was able to enjoy a lovely ham dinner with all the fixin's with my family. All of which didn't leave me with any time to get crafty yesterday, luckily for me I had made a couple extra cards for this month's TGF release so I am sharing one today. This sad sweetie is from the new Feels 3 set and as soon as I saw her I knew that I wanted her to be crying over a spilled ice cream cone, I mean talk about a serious tragedy, LOL! So I colored an empty cone into her hand and some strawberry ice cream at her feet. Then to really sell this story I grabbed the ice cream truck from the older Main Street set and stamped it into the background. The papers and colors were all pulled from the Doodlebug Sweet Summer paper pad really tying the entire scene all together. Even though she sure looks sad I actually had a lot of fun bringing this scene to life. :)
