Sometimes you're the bug!

This is just a really simple card I made this morning for my best friend. Cathie and I have been best friends since I moved to St. John, KS in 2nd grade. We've been through all of lifes changes in the last 29 years and we've always been there for each other. She's hit one of those little speed bumps in the road of life where life's littles issue seem to just keep coming at you all at once. So, I'm hoping this will cheer her up. She drove a light blue bug when we were in high school and this image brings back lots of good memories for me, so I hope they will for her as well.

I used pixie pink for the card base. It matched the pink flowers on the carolee's creations dp perfectly, unfortunately, once I got the image on there, you can't see any pink flowers - oh well, it's still looks fun! I colored the image with copics and stardust pens.

I got an amazing new ice cream maker. I love homemade ice cream, but we never made it because it makes such a mess and is such a pain. Well, I bought a cuisinart ice cream maker that doesn't require salt or ice. You simply freeze the ice cream bowl (I plan to just store it in the freezer, at least during the summer) add the ingredients and in 25-30 minutes you have awesome homemade ice cream! Last night we tried it out for the first time, we had vanilla with chopped up pieces of snickers in it. It was wonderful! I'll have to call Gage and remind him not to eat it all today, as it was meant to be for dessert.
