How Sweet It Is

This is the first week in ages that I haven't entered the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and it's Tuesday evening.  What is wrong with me?  I knew I couldn't let the opportunity to win a gift certificate to their awesome store pass me by, so at the last minute - I made this little card using October Afternoon patterned papers and emphera, and Papertrey Ink ice cream cone die cut and wool felt. 
Here is the link to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  I naturally chose my greatest weakness in life - ice cream.  I could, in all honesty, live on ice cream.  I'm looking forward to my trip to Minnesota this summer so that I can visit the most amazing ice cream store in Stillwater, Minnesota called Nelsons.  Their "child size" cone is the size of the Grand Canyon (almost), and their ice cream is the best I've ever had - and trust me when I say that I've tasted A LOT of ice cream.

I also want to invite you to play along at Word Art Wednesday as the new challenge starts in the morning, and we would LOVE to have you join us this week.  There is also free word art every week.  We are always happy to meet new friends, and we have another great prize up for grabs this week.  I hope you will check it out.

Have a blessed day, and thanks for stopping by.
