I used my ZIG real brush pens to wash a coral-y mix of pink and orange over this daisy (stamped on Bristol cardstock). After die cutting, I mounted on some neutral Amy Tangerine paper. Sadly, when I went to pull cardstock for matting and the sentiment, I found I was out of the old Stampin’ Up! Cameo Coral (a soft pastel coral). I did find a sheet of Regal Rose in my stash, it is close enough for this.
Dropped into the mail to a family member, HOPEFULLY arriving on time for Thursday birthday!

So…this is my anniversary card for my hubby. It does have Happy Anniversary on the inside.
The pizza paper was a whim. We have been joking for the last week that we can go get soft serve ice cream to celebrate our anniversary (the local stand was to open for the season on our anniversary…with the pandemic, they are not opening until a later date). Ice cream is NOT pizza, I know. But my ice cream cone paper is bright pink…not a color of my hubby. Pizza paper has blue (the hubby color). We do love pizza (homemade, or Grotto – which was a beach brand until about 3 years ago when they opened a store within 5 miles of us!).

Paper scraps seem to be the theme this week! This time, I made a collage out of fishtailed strips.

I really wish I could get a version of this ice cream paper with a blue background!
This second card is a note card. And, YES, I have this paper in 2 different sizes – the smaller scale is from a 6 x 6 pad, the larger scale is an individual sheet I purchased separately.
Are you asking, “why ice cream today, Kathy??”
This past weekend, Offspring3 and I went to see “The Color Purple” at The Kennedy Center. It was a lovely show. On the way home, we stopped at our local soft serve stand and ate dessert before dinner! I got the better end of the deal – she bought the tickets & drove (Metro construction zones, rail closures made it too difficult to go on public transportation), I paid for parking and ice cream.
SO…I have had ice cream on my mind!
