Inspiration Challenge and Double Dog Dare Challenge

My DH got up at 4AM to go to a fishing tournament this morning so I woke up to am empty house. Needless to say this girl didn't get up to fix his breakfast!!! I did get some stamping done...yeaaaa!!!
When I looked at the inspiration bedding on Splitcoast this morning, I fell in love with this one called Neapolitian because it reminded me of ice cream!! I have had this beautiful paper from DCWV's The Sweet Stack for a while and it goes perfectly with these adorable stamps from Pink Cat Studio. Don't look too close because the paper has strawberries on it and I used cherries....oh, well...same color anyway!!
I also made this card for the Double Dog Dare Challenge I do each week with a group of wonderful SCS friends. I was the hostess this week, and the assignment was to make something sweet. Well, ya can't get much sweeter than ice cream!! You can find all the DDC cards here.
The images were stamped with Memento Brown and colored with copics. I tried to leave the colors soft so they wouldn't look too busy next to the paper. Crystal Effects was used on the cherries and toppings, and then dusted with Dazzling Diamonds. The Ribbon is from Papertrey Ink and the sweet little cherry bling is by Heidi Snapp from Ellen Hutson, LLC.
I am going to my DD Holly's home this afternoon to work on a few projects. I will upload them later today if I get finished. When we get together to stamp we seem to get side tracked and projects don't get completed. Have a great Saturday and thanks for visiting today!!!
