Ice cream! It's so hot in Texas so ice cream sounds great to me. I went a bit more grown up with my icy treat today and a frappuccino with an added espresso shot. You'd think it would have me a bit more awake after that! lol Anyway, this is another card for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges. I love this cute ice cream set from Simon Says Stamp. I was feeling orange today, so I went monochromatic and did some shades of orange. I like it!

And my second project is using a favorite set, Neat & Tangled Origami Map! I love the fun geometrics of it and it's even more fun to use now that I have the matching die. If you get this set, grab that at the same time. You won't regret that. I used my distress inks again to make some fun backgrounds. I stamped and cut out the map after I made the green background. It was way easier that way!

Laila has been having a blast learning geography with her USA puzzle and our new globe. I recently asked my FB and Instagrm friends if they might be willing to send her a postcard from their state/country so we can make a little scrapbook to go along with our learning. If any of my blog readers would also like to send one, just email me at kyann22 at yahoo dot com and I'll send you our address! I can't wait for them to start to arrive. She loves mail and is always sad when none of it is for her. Poor dear.
