Sweet Sundaes!

Can I tell you something funny?  The other day I was sitting at my desk making cards (yes, I know that’s hard to believe!)  and my husband was sitting talking to me and says with a most serious face “haven’t you got enough stuff?…”  It was hard for me not to start rolling around on the floor laughing, but my response to him was, “haven’t you got enough kayaks?…”  and then the world continued on.

Now onto the cards,  (please scroll down for the PDCC)  I thought I would combine this post as the cards are similar, and I couldn’t help myself but make more than one!  I haven’t played with this Pink Petticoat image for a while, but the sundaes came to mind when I saw the current challenge at Jay Gee’s Blog.   I am combining this with the CASE Study Challenge  (CSC38) this week, where the new Muse is Sarah Martina Parker.   I also wanted to get out my pencils after seeing this tutorial over at Shari’s blog, and I thought that these would look a little more vintage than Copics.

Enjoy Sundae

I definitely had to join this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge, as I am still reeling over my win last week.  This will be a thank you card for a wonderful friend who we stayed with recently in outback Western Australia (you can see some photos HERE if you are interested).  I also did make my light box today… now I just need some lights…

Sundae Thanks

  1. Both cards are just too ‘sweet’ Therese! Love the polka dots and the wonky rectangles. That sundae image is fabulous… why didn’t I find that? I actually looked for one when I was going to make my card. So glad you joined us again at Jay Gee’s 🙂

  2. Cute-ness! I really love the simpleness of your second card! You are certainly finding lots of time to make cards lately! I am SO jealous…things are very quiet on my blog…my everyday life is getting in the way at the moment…but I love to see what masterpieces you are coming up with! 🙂

  3. For your hubby it’s kayaks, for mine it’s fishing gear! Loooove both these cards….how do you do that CAS so well…I am always amazed! Love that image – such a sweet shape – makes me want to attack the ice cream though lol.

  4. Great CAS design, Therese and fabulous embossing on the sentiment! Super fussy cutting as well! Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe!

  5. These are fantastic! That white background panel in the first on is so perfectly 50s diner! Makes me want to put on a poodle skirt and jive! 🙂

  6. Theresa, congrats on your win last week at PDCC! Yay! I like your confection this week too: clean, crisp and yummy. 🙂 THanks for playing with us again.

  7. Oooo! LOVE your layering and embossing with the vellum, and that image looks YUM-O! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

  8. You rock, Therese! These cards are AWESOME!! Both of these cards look CAS, but there are tons of small details. I can tell they were a lot of work! The colored pencil look is amazing (new trend?). And those wonky rectangle? Love it! Your cards are so amazing…

  9. What a fun and adorable image. I love how you’ve used it on both cards, but I am really liking the simplicity of your PDCC card. Thanks for playing along at The Play Date Cafe.

  10. Wow … I love both of your cards … CAS to perfection!!!
    I especially love the sundaes with the polka dots – you have captured that era to a “tee”…
    I look forward to visiting your blog more often!!!

  11. Both of your cards are fantastic! I am craving a sindae right now, thanks!! 🙂
    Seriously though, I love those big bold green polka dots on the first card. And I LOVE how you combined the colours for the second! LOVE them! 🙂
