Treat yourself...

Hello friends!

I've been itchin' to color up the new Ice Cream Truck from the Sunshine Lake release at Purple Onion and yesterday was finally the day for it. I've actually had this scene stamped up for weeks but for the longest time the long slimline had been feeling a bit daunting. Not so the last few days though and instead they have been relaxing to take on with all that coloring. Juliet, the bird at the picnic table and Marigold, the bunny with the triple scoop cone, are both part of the Sunshine Lake collection and made to go with the Ice Cream Truck but I really wanted the squirrel to be offering that ice cream cone to someone. So I started flipping through my stash of Purple Onion stamps and found not one but two cuties that would work. These two tiny mice are part of the Sweets image that is from the Twas the Night Before Christmas collection. The stamp has them begging cookies from their mama but I simply snipped the rubber stamp into three separate images for more versatility of use. I love how excited they look to be getting that ice cream now. For the background I used the Grassy Shore border stamp as well as the Lake Background again. Though this time because of the position of the large truck I was able to take some liberties with the lake and changed the shore line, leaving a bit of beach showing on the left by simply coloring the front part of the water as sand. I love how this totally changes to look of the stamp compared to my previous card using that lake. then I just finished the whole thing off with another great sentiment from the Sunshiny Sentiment set. Talk about a card that's just as sweet as can be.  :)    

Later gators!

Love it, I snip my stamps all the time. Then the next time I take them out the packet, spend half an hour trying to rack my brain to remeber what scene I did it for
