BasicGrey Challenges # 35...Ice Cream....It's the smallest things that fill your heart!!!

Good morning, folks! Well, it is raining cats and dogs here this morning but I think it will still prove to be a good day...full of stamping and cardmaking and a little shopping too!
This week we have a great challenge over at the BasicGrey Challenges blog! So, I hope you can join us! Go check out the BG blog and all the other DT cards and you will surely be inspired by all the yummy creations this week!!!!
From the BG Blog....
" This weeks challenge is a really tasty one :), as its nearly summer what better way to celebrate than to have a challenge inspired by a hot summers day favourite treat , that's right Ice cream :), this weeks challenge we would like you to be inspired by your favourite ice cream flavour, you can be inspired many ways by your favourite ice cream (as you will see by our DT creations), so let your imaginations run wild, and we cant wait to see your tasty creations! Now as an extra treat for this weeks challenge we have a fab prize for the lucky winner which has very kindly been sponsored by our new sponsor...The Glitter Garden! "
For this card I was inspired by my favourite summer treat when we go camping at Sandbanks Provincial Park here in Ontario. The park is where I spent my summers as a kid with my best friend, Fiona and her family, not far from my hometown! Now, I get to go back and share that with my kids! We make a point to head into a little town called Picton to shop and walk around the historical downtown but the best thing is stopping and getting a gelato...yum-o!!! I'm a coffee lover too, so I always get one of the coffee flavoured gelatos. This card is inspired by summer, camping with my family, the beach and a Cafe Caramel Gelato...yum-o! I can't wait to do it again this summer!!!
The perfect paper for this card was my new BG Wisteria!!! Ohhhh how I love this paper and I used the Wisteria brads too! This stamp of Willow with Flower Basket from WOJ is one of my faves and used my new Oval Nesties that I ordered from The Shopping Channel!

I coloured Willow with my Copics and sponged around the edges with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
Well there you have it! I am heading out to teach a couple friends how to stamp and all about Copics markers...a little Private class...how fun is that and then a trip to Stamping Bella!
Hope you have a great day and a great long weekend for my fellow Canadians! We are celebrating Victoria Day on Monday and so we all get an extra day of stamping,lol!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek and make sure you go and visit the other BG DT gals there is lots of fabulously yummy inspiration this week!
Hugs,

Tara,
Your cards are so beautiful I am so motivated. I haven’t done anything since our lesson 2 weeks ago and by the way the card turned out perfect, my friends and family couldn’t believe I actually made it. The class was amazing and I learned so much. I am finally buying the markers – actually my husband is buying them for my birthday. Which styles do you recommend Copic – Ciao, Sketch or original? I am starting with the kits so I want to make the correct decision from the get go.
Thanks again for all your help. Anna
