Ah, to be a kid again! I remember looking forward with great anticipation to getting to play dress-up for much of the day, getting to “be” whomever I chose. For me, I remember a mix of things, but the pictures that stand out in my memory include a brown cat (not sure what rummage sale mom found that suit at – I was probably old enough to know I liked kitties and animals in general, but probably not old enough to speak their names!), ghosts, princess (what girl wasn’t?), an angel, Laura from Little House on the Prairie (one of my favorites!), and my all-time favorite: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. (I told you that was my favorite movie as a kid! ;))
As an adult, we still need to have fun from time to time, though few of us allow that to happen much of at all. (Other’s are in the opposite camp, but that’s a story for someone else’s home on the web. 🙂 I decided to have a little fun this weekend with the sketch challenge posted by my friend Mary of Up North Stampin’. And fun I had! And a lot of inky fingers – better yet!

Though I love, winter, I was itching to create something bright in hopes of spreading delight for those opening the envelopes. With two cards to make for upcoming birthdays, I thought about stamp sets I haven’t made use of recently and this adorable Ice Cream set immediately came to mind.
Mission: create two happy-go-lucky, smile-worthy birthday cards for two fellow cardmakers!
