Strawberry Sundae Shaker

Here it is! The card that made all that mess! My Strawberry Sundae Shaker. I'm really pleased with it. The colours are just soooo mouth watering juicy! The only thing, I should've put something else inside that window...I had a couple of mice poking their tongues out (licking the ice cream?) but they were really the wrong colour...or maybe more beads or perhaps one of the other papers~ or just framed the ice cream, there's an idea. The papers, you all should know by now, are freebies from, Tinker and Co. and if you want some more ideas of what to do with these lovely papers once you've got them, there's loads over on their site and a chance to win some stuff! (I said that in a whisper).You haven't got them yet?? Why not!!? Pop over right now and hunt them, wait~ after you've read this! It's so mind blowingly interesting! Wow!! Now, where was I? Oh yes... I've looked into my Crystal Ball and I can see that I will enter this card into Die Cut Dreams Challenge 10# That'll be sometime in August, hopefully when the sun's nice and hot and we're all down the beach eating ice creams!! Because that's what the challenge is all about. Ice Cream!! (Yum)
The wording I've typed in a circle was done on my computer and punched out with a Woodware punch. I think I might do a 'thing' on how to do that, then put it down at the bottom of the blog so it's always there~what d'you think? Let me know! (I bet you don't...I said that in a whisper too)
The little button hand was in my stash (I was thinking sticky fingers after eating all that ice cream? No? Oh, only me then! Hmm, after I've eaten ice cream hubby will grin and run his finger over his top lip...and I'll grin back, all sexy like...half an hour later I'll realise...I have a chocolate moustache!)
The paper for the flowers was first put through my BigShot using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I've noticed, the paper seems to have more 'body' once its been embossed. Think I'll print on both sides next time though, so there's no 'white' showing. I've put a little micro glitter on the ice cream and some Stickles glitter on the flowers. The fiber wool's from my of the balls I bought from a charity shop (3 large balls for a pound~ I know what you're thinking... you'd pay a pound to see that...)
I was playing about with the inside last night. The 'real' one is at the top, the lower one is the scan, which I've saved on my computer to use again. I then printed the 'Happy Birthday' along with 'Loony Lyn'. (Ran it through on another piece of paper first just to make sure it all lined up in the right place) All my cards, if they're going off to Forum Members (I'm on a few Birthday Lists) usually have Loony Lyn inside and on the back. I used to sign all my cartoon correspondence using her, there's a spider on her pen. (Only a small one Charlotte!) It's supposed to be me, (the person not the spider)Welllll... I'm allowed a little artistic license!
I've used one of the other ice cream sundaes inside and also the Sizzix word, 'Fun.'
I did end up stamping 'Happy Birthday' on the original insert but it smudged a tiny bit.. My mind was on Strawberries instead of stamping! Catch you again later...
