Hi Everyone!!

Happy Friday!  Here is a card I made for the ICE CREAM challenge over at BBTB2.  This was the perfect summer challenge.  I had so much fun making this card.  For the full scoop :-) -  see my recipe below.  It really made me crave some ice cream though. . . lol!!  My pictures aren't the greatest quality.  I am trying new things to improve them, but haven't quite figured it out.  I would love to hear what you use to take your pictures.  

Don't forget to enter for my Michael's gift card giveaway (see the link to the left above).

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!!!

  10. that card looks YUMMY!!!! I have a little tip for taking pics of your projects! :) Always try to take your pics in natural light, without a flash. The flash makes glares on the projects. I take my pics outside on my deck when the sun is going down (before it's dark, but after the sun isn't that harsh overhead light). The natural lighting is amazing at that time. Then I take my pics into an editing program and crop them! Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by my link up party!!

  11. WOW.. this looks totally DELICIOUS!!! I'm CRAVING ice cream now!!! I do take my photos outside or late at night with a good light!! I use an OTT LIGHT!! They are the best.. IMHO.. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. :) You are too kind!!!
