TCC149 Happy Day

 Hi everyone!  Wednesday brings us a new challenge from The Card Concept, where we share specific concepts of creating!  Here's the prompt Julie has for us today:

Isn't that a fun child's room?  I was inspired by the my high school yearbook under "favorites", I listed the color orange...and it's still one of my favorites, in any shade!  I pulled out the new Sweet Ice Cream stamp set (ice cream is a favorite, too, LOL!) and went to work:

I used the sketch from TGIF to get me started:

I stamped three ice cream scoops in Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie and Crisp Cantalope (ret), stamping the cones in Baked Brown Sugar, then punching them out with the matching punch.  I stamped the sprinkles in Versamark, then coated them with Heat and Stick powder and added some glitter for fun:

I used some DSP from Peony Garden, matted with Pumpkin Pie and a piece of the retired Birthday Bonanza, then added a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays and some retired twine:

Finally, on the inside, an explosion of confetti and another sentiment from Sweet Ice Cream:

As usual, I would say my card follows the "Clean and Layered" style!  You can see all the styles on The Card Concept's blog and I hope you'll be able to play with us as well!

On Sunday after the family finished celebrating Dana's birthday, we decided to do some impromptu sledding!  It was perfect weather...not too cold or windy, even though it was overcast, and the snow from a few days ago was still "sleddable"!  Cassidy and Lee decided to have a race; I think Cass might have gotten a wee bit of a head start:

Great form....she's making good headway!

She's ahead so far!

Uh oh! Lee's a little heavier and is catching up!

He hits the swamp first....I believe he's the winner!

Crash!!  Cassidy runs into him and they both topple over!  But you can see by the smile, they were both laughing hysterically!

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

What a yummy card! Great take on that inspiration photo. I love seeing the kids having such fun in the snow. We've been looking at our empty hill and remembering those sledding days.

I'm not a fan of ice cream, but I love your card! Such fun sledding. It's heart warming to see kids without video games!!

Whoops! I probably shouldn't have looked at this card as it's lunchtime and I'm hungry! It's lovely with those gorgeous colours and touch of glitter. The snow pics are so much fun! Vicky x

LOVE your ice cream! I can see exactly how you were inspired! The sledding looks like so much fun. With my "kids" being 21 and 25 (and no grandchildren in sight) - I love seeing your playful pictures!
