July's Summer Fun Blog Hop w/Just A Scrappin'~

Hello my friends! I'm sure by now we can officially say that summer is upon us and to welcome summer we, at Just A Scrappin' are celebrating with our July Summer Fun Blog Hop!

If you are just stopping by my blog today, please take the time to hop along with us and enjoy all the beautiful projects and inspiration that my DT sisters have created! There is even some blog candy along the way!! If you are already on the hop, you should have came here from Bree's blog. If you have not started the blog hop yet, be sure to start at the beginning at Just A Scrappin so you don't miss out!. To go with our Summer Fun theme I've created this card

Papers used are Bazzill and Echo Park. I cut the ice cream cone from my Doodlecharms cricut cartridge at 3". The ice cream cone can be found on page 106. I added some confetti glitter to the top of the ice cream cone and then coated it with some glossy accents.

The sentiment I used is from Mary's Fun in the Sun stamp set.

I used the sentiment "stayin cool by the pool" from the set and just inked up only "stayin cool". I cut it out using spellbinder's fancy labels 3 die. What better way to cool off in the hot summer sun then by having a cold ice cream cone right? To finish off the card I added some mint green liquid pearls and added some ribbon that I had in my ribbon stash.

Well thats it for my card today! Your next stop on the hop is Belinda's blog so be sure to visit each of my DT sisters blogs for some fun and exciting projects. Remember there is some cool blog candy along the way but to be eligible to win the blog candy, you must leave a comment on each DT's blog.
