BBTB2/BlogHop/SweetTreats/IceCream

Congratulations to Karen ...she has won the blog candy. Please email me, Karen, so I can make arrangements to mail the purse pouch to you.
Happy Monday....Happy month-end. It's blog hop time at BBTB2 and wait til you see the lovely creations our design team has in store for your inspiration. Our hostess is Maria and she asked us to design from Sweet Treats and to use the ice cream cone on page 35. Any ice cream cone will do if you would love to join in on our challenge. Just make it a new creation, and please mention on your blog that you have joined in the BBTB2 challenge. In the blog hop lineup, you should have landed on my blog from design team sister Carri V.
Here is my card. I had some wonderful double sided cardstock ...the sheet I selected for this design has colorful circles on one side and a pink diamond plaid on the other. I did a lot of embossing, mounted the cone on a Nestie decorative circle, and some ribbon and jewel bling are added to enhance the yum-factor.

My blog candy is my usual. Sewing stuff!.. When I am sewing, in between projects like Quilts and embroidery and totes, I will grab up small swatches of fabrics and make little projects like this small purse. This is about 8 inches x 4-1/2 and can be used for all sorts of things. It is lined, and the closure is velcro. Just leave a comment and I will put you in the draw. Check back after 2PM on July 29 to see whose name appears as the winner. The winner should email me no later than August 2. If I do not hear from the winner by that date, I will draw another name.
In the tradition of the blog hop, I now direct you to that oh so multi talented Donna Mundinger who will delight you with her designs. You can see her inspirational design right here.
Thanks for stopping by.... I love your visits and comments...

Haven't had much time to blog hop lately but had to leave some love for your gorgeous ice cream cone card and sweet little bag, Carole. I'm now caring for my 86 year old bed bound mom so my time is a bit restricted but am still making cards. Hope your summer is going well. xoxo
