Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is Cool!

This Lindsay's Stamp Stuff image brings back memories from my childhood. As a special treat, my dad would occasionally make us floats (brown cows or black cows depending on the soda). It was always a special time because we did not often have dessert or soda when I was a kid. When I was scrolling through my LSS images and preparing to make my project this week, this image just jumped out at me and brought the memories back.

So, what's your favorite? Black cows (made with Coke) or brown cows (made with rootbeer)?

Please take a moment to look at the projects from the rest of the DT. We have a new member on the team, Diane Bove. Give her a warm welcome with some comment love. You'll also want to stop by Lindsay's blog to check out the freebie she is giving away today.

Thanks for the welcome Cheryl, I do remember brown cows, but only on Sunday nights, we never had ice cream at any other time! Your card is way cool, I love the cute ribbon and button you added. Thanks for sharing. ~Diane

Amazing card, love the colors and layout!

Love the card, but I have to admit I can't stand ice cream floats. Something about fizzy soda and creamy ice cream together makes my stomach churn with pain. I know, I know....I'm so strange!
Cindi said…

Tammy said…

Yum I loved black cows! You are always jogging my memory with your posts.
Great image and card today.
Margie said…
Mmmmm....yummy! Now I want a float! And I don't discriminate...I love any kind! I am sitting here thinking about how good orange soda and vanilla ice cream would taste! Your card is awesome, thx for the memories!
Tamara Bennett said…
I'd have to say brown cows are my favorite! haha. I love the card and thank you for sharing the story that inspired it. It sounds like this one would make a good father's day card.

Perfect card to go with that fun memory. I never liked the brown cows that everyone else liked, I had purple cows--grape juice with vanilla ice cream.

Ice cream floats scream Summer. Grat job.

I've never heard of floats referred to as black cows or brown cows - interesting! I used to drink root beer floats with my father on special occasions though. Great memories. ;) Love how you popped up your drink and that neat ruffly ribbon. :)

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
