And Perhaps a Little Ice Cream ….

Lots of birthday celebrations coming up in June so it’s time to get moving on some cards. I don’t use a lot of Stampin’ Up products, but I’ve always been fond of the Big Day stamp set. I like the simplicity of the stamps and that you can either color them or stamp them on black to get a chalkboard effect.

I put this card together for my brother (it’s OK, he doesn’t read my blog). In my family, there’s no such thing as “a little ice cream” so I think he’ll appreciate the joke. And I couldn’t help but pair the sentiment with Mo Manning’s delightful “Moo” for some added impact.
