Screaming for...Ice Cream!

Want some ice cream? Just sharing some "treats" today. I have been having too much fun with this.  It has been so hot here in this part of Southern Ontario, Canada, so this was COOL to make.
I cut a little slit to insert the sentiment and added glitter for the button. Mouth-watering yet?
you're the best!
I "super-sized" the image and printed out on three different card stock. I made the second one with the extras. Nothing goes to waste! I used the SRM Stickers and added the ric rac for the "surprise" element. One little discovery during  the card-making process was that the ink from the printed digital image got smeared very easily. The solution? Put Glossy Accent all over the black outline . It worked and actually added the extra dimension for the ice cream cone. Eureka!
SURPRISE
Oh... and here's my apple card at Treehouse Stamp. All was created with one apple image.
You can use the free digie and create a new card/project for the September contest (details here). Hope the ice cream make you feel all cool and happy and the apple will help keep the doctor away :)
