Hi chicksies and hope you are all OK.

Well me and my BIG mouth :(.

When I set the Papertake Weekly challenges some months ago, stoopidly I assumed that as it was July we would be having a summer of sorts.  Mmmmm!!!

Well this is the second time now I’ve assumed this on both occasions the weather hasn’t been too good. So although today our challenge is

Hot Hot Hot

it’s actually  not not not lol!!!

But it isn't all bad cos we are sponsored by those lovely peeps Mary and Andrea  who are the one and only …

And we have one of the new mini kits to give away this week. They may be mini in name but they are crammed with all sorts of goodies …

… and the colours are perfect for this challenge today :)

So this is what I did.

I used this very sweet Swiss Pixie – Ice Ceam Birgitta which is available from  Tracy at Dies To Die For – and coloured her with these Copics -

E000, E00, E21 (skin), E33, E42, E50 (hair), RV0000, RV00, RV10, R85, YG0000, YG01 (clothes etc)

  I forgot to add her rosy cheeks, doh!!

The papers are My Minds Eye – Life Of The Party – and I also used my new Creative Book Pages Die, which Tracy has on offer,  for the base and also for cutting the design paper.

I really like the shapes in this set.

Do you like the little ice cream??

It’s just a bit of brown card shaped into a cone, stuffed with cotton wool and then dipped in glue and then chunky glitter and topped off with a bit of bling:) The self adhesive rhinestones are from Wild Orchid Crafts

This beautimous ribbon is 38mm Grosgrain Stripe ribbon in pink and white and this really does behave itself and ties so nicely. It is of course from The Ribbon Girl, as is the little button.

And finally the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

So that’s me done for today and apologies for putting the heeby jeebies on the weather. Next time maybe I should try doing all wet and damp and cold challenges and then maybe it will turn out nice lol!!!!

I’ll see you tomoz and leave you with a bit of a sneakie peek at my card ….

Hi Dawny,
A fabulous card and just love this little cutie with her ice cream. Great idea to make your own embellishment of a cone.
Weather here in Cornwall is a bit changeable but we have had some sunshine.
