Creative Tuesdays: Ice Cream

"I scream, you scream, we all scream, for ICE CREAM --!!"





I just had to be silly, for the "Creative Tuesday" prompt that's upcoming is "Ice Cream." Goodness knows that those of us in a hot weathered area could use it. Mmmm...


Gelato is a favorite of mine, even though somewhat different than ice-cream. I have a soft-spot for it because I'm part Italian... but really, the creamy stuff is pretty difficult not to like! Mmm... so many kinds of ice-cream are good. Popsicles are also yummy. The kids in the card I posted for this week's submission are each eating ice-cream popsicles on a summer day. In fact, the girl got so into hers that she got it all over her face!


This card was captioned, "I Think You're Super Sweet!" Since the popsicles are sweet, presumably both parties are sweet to each other, and the "super" part comes from his being dressed up as some sort of a heroic comic-booky type character.


In any event, without further ado, everyone should check out Mister Toast's blog! Come the second of Agosto, the most recent entry will have everybody's submissions (and if you submitted a work yourself, it's where you'll post the link):



Here's a link to more fun and romantic cards of mine:



I'm off now to go dream of ice-cream. Noms upon noms.

This is cool! Cool-hahaha! It looks a bit retro and looks as though it should be part of a comic sttrip. I like :)
