CDS Blog Hop: Summertime

Welcome to the Clear Dollar Stamps Monthly Blog Hop!  This month's theme is 

Summertime

You should have made your way here from Lorie's blog.  If not, why not start at the beginning, which is Lori's blog: Clearly iStamp.  You're sure to be inspired by all of the wonderful projects that the CDS Design Team (both stamp and digi) have made for this fun hop!

For the summertime theme all I could think of was ice cream, hehe.  Of course, I love ice cream any time of year, but it is always summer that makes me think of being a kid at the pool and walking across the street at breaks to my hometown's ice cream shop, The Cone Corner.  It's no longer there, but I sure did love that place.  I used a couple of new releases from CDS for my card: Ice Cream Cone, and Happy Birthday (both are single stamps). 
Stamps:  Ice Cream Cone & Happy Birthday
Paper:  CDS Worn Parchment, CDS Cottonball White
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Copics, black marker, red brads, dimensionals

I also made this card for the CAS-ual Friday challenge, which was to use sweets or treats!

These monthly hops that CDS does every 3rd Sunday are great, because as you hop and leave comments, you increase your chances at winning some prizes.  Who doesn't love prizes?!  Now hop on over to sweet Barb's blog for some more summertime inspiration!
