Cool Summer Treat

Don't you just love a nice ice cream cone on a hot summer evening? My Dad had a savings account set up for me when I was a kid and he put money into it every month. When the bank statements came it didn't mean much to me that I had money for later, I wanted something NOW. He would tear off the return address and write on it "I O U 1 DQ." Now THAT meant something to me. I would save those little pieces of paper like they were gold, and on hot summer evenings I would pull one out and my Dad and I would go get Dairy Queen for the family.

So on these warm summer nights I have been inspired to make an ice cream card. I just got these Unity Stamps and had to use them. The image seems so clean and almost childlike which was perfect for what I was going for. I also wanted to play with this weeks sketch challenge (SC234).
