June Secret Sister Swap

Gotta say, this card that I made for Kathy was super-duper fun to make.  I've had this "Swings 'n Slides Ice Cream Cart" image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps for about a year and since our theme was "summer," the light bulb went on.  I inked the cart and "Anuhea" by Sister Stamps with Copics, and paper-pieced her shirt.   Also snipped off the straw from her shaved ice to make it look like an ice cream cone.  :-)    To top off the scene, I added the clouds (with the rainbow snipped off) and sun from the "Hello Sunshine" set by Dandelion Designs, hills using the "Stitched Landscape" die by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking, and grass stamp from Viva Las Vegas stamps.  Yes, everything except the hills were "fun" cut.  I was really happy with how it turned out and happier that Kathy really liked it.

Included with my cards were a few RAKS....

And lookie here.  I'm beyond thrilled and in awe to have received this really cool flip book that Valerie made for me featuring "Popsicle Marci."  I spent quite some time checking out how she put it together.   She did a fabulous job!!!!

This is what it looks like when you flip the cover over....

And when you flip the right and left panel open.  

She also included this sweet mini stamp set.  THANK YOU SO MUCH VAL!!!!

Thank you for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!!

The card that you made for Kathy is a perfect card for the theme "summer." Everything coordinates perfectly together to make a fun summer scene.

The card that you received from Valerie is very nice too.

The RAK that you sent to Kathy and what you received from Valerie are both very thoughtful.

Have a great week!
