Panic time!

Yesterday I took my hubby Bill to the airport & sent him off to visit his brother in Penticton, BC for 10  days. Driving home I thought how much fun I was going to have crafting for days on end without interruption.....what's for supper....where are my car jeans need washed (says he doesn't know how to use the new front load machine!!) The smile was soon wiped off my face this morning though when I went to take a picture of this card & remembered he had taken my camera! What do I do now? Ah, new printer is also a scanner...let's give that a go....suffice to say it took me about 6 tries to get the scan done properly & into my pictures instead of documents (where it wouldn't upload to blogger) Why can't they make anything easy on us poor old computer illiterate seniors??!! I'm sure everywhere I go on my computer now I am going to have this ice cream sundae staring at me & laughing!

This adorable image is by Heather over at Fresh Brewed Designs; colored with prismacolor pencils & OMS; DP is Little Yellow Bicycle & Basic Grey; CS is The Paper Company; I have used a MS border punch & Spellbinders; ribbon is from Michael's & the bling (which is purple but looks clear here) is from Queen & Co.

I plan to enter my card in the following challenges:
1. Celebrate the Occasion #73.....I scream for ice cream (I am just getting in under the wire on this one because of all the scanning issues!!!)
2. Papertake Weekly #70.....sketch
3. Tuesday cream social
4. Crafty summer treats
5. My Mum's Craft Shop.....#68....favorite ice cream flavour....strawberry
6. Crafty Ribbon.....spots & dots
7. DYSU.....polka dots
8. Little Miss Muffett.....neapolitan ice cream colors
9. Crafty
10. Poodles Parlour.....anything goes
11. Simply Create Too.....anything goes

Hope you have a wonderful day & thanks for stopping by!
