So if you came here from Kelly's fun and fab blog you are on the right track. To start at the beginning lovely Mary will welcome you to her blog. I'll tell you in a minute what my word is, which blog to hop to next and what to do at Heather's blog.
I don't want you to get away without seeing my tasty treats from FBD's new images. We are all holding out hope that warm weather will be here soon, so this hot fudge sundae is first on my list of summer treats:
Back in Arizona we had an ice cream parlor called Swenson's. I don't think they are around anymore, but they served up delicious ice cream smothered in hot fudge, whipped cream, and a waffle cookie wedge, just like this image. I think they put cherries on top, but I really like the strawberries! Yum. With the cuttlebug embossing folders and Nesties die cuts I kept the card somewhat simple. Believe it or not the image is colored with Bic fine point permanent markers (What!? No Copics?) The colors are limiting but fun to use. The vanilla ice cream looks more like lemon, but we'll just call it a rich French vanilla! I also made an envelope to match. With the new Martha Stewart scoring board and envelope template I really have no excuse for not going that little extra step.
Now, what could be better in the summertime than refreshing lemonade? Gotta start with lemons and here is a beauty. She will make you pucker up, so don't forget the sugar!
Again the Cuttlebug and Nesties were valuable tools, as well as the MS scoring board and envelope template. The lemon was also colored with the Bic markers. The rub-on words here and on the hot fudge sundae are from the KI Memories Juicy Summer collection of embellies. So, are you ready for summer yet?
Thank you for looking at my cards. Now I will reveal my word to you:

and from here you will want to hop over to our guest designer Carol. (We are happy to have you with us, Carol!) Carol is the last designer before reaching Heather where she will let you know where to send your tasty phrase from the list of words as well as other deets about the blog hop.
I am so glad you stopped by and hope you are enjoying the FBD Blog Hop.
