99 please with sprinkles!

I so excited and a little nervous to be hosting my first challenge over in the Hanna Stamps SCS forum. This week I have a sketch for you to use so please go on over to check it out.

I also had a surprise phone call last night and was so made up that Kristi the owner of Hanna Stamps and also our fabulous Design Team Coordinator Vicki had rang for a chat. It was awesome talking to you girls! We're even hoping to meet up in Florida next May!

For my card I have used the cute new release Ice Cream Riley. I just knew as soon as I see this Riley a few weeks ago that I would drag out my Basic Grey Cupcake papers. Every Saturday night my girls always look out for the ice cream lady for their 99 with flake... oh and lots and lots of sprinkles!

For all you Hanna and Riley lovers out there I have a great selection in my store and will be stocking all future releases.

My sweet little guy is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend.

I haven't shown you a picture of Bella for a while... she isn't so little now. You remember only a few weeks ago she would sit underneath Danni's baby buggy. Well now she is so big dolly has got pushed out and she sits in the main seat. lol!

Wow, I can't believe it's Friday again! Wishing you all a great weekend.
