A Special Treat!

This has been a great week, thanks for joining me again and . . .  Hi to all my friends and family!

I was inspired the other day by a template creation so I though it would be the perfect occasion to practice with some new embellishments and get extra creative!


So I started from scratch and drew up an ice cream cone and the ice cream scoop also, put them together, outlined the template on bazzill stock, cut straight line across the top, flipped the scoop and traced it again.  The base was done and the rest is just 1/8 inward the whole way.  Took some photos along the way for later reference. I thought the image withing the round circle on the top was like the cherry and the lace was like the whipped cream!  I even added a tear drop charm to symbolize a drip of ice cream like the adorable image used here.


This week at Wags 'n whiskers challenge is your opportunity to show me all your Birthday creations!  Our Hostess this week is the lovely and talented Darlene from Dar's Crafty Creations, be sure and visit her blog here.                              .
