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!

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!

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. :)

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…
