Ballerina

Hi Crafty Friends,
This is my first post as a Design Team Member for Rachelle Ann Miller Creative Studios!

Make sure you visit Rachelle's store to see all the NEW digis and she is adding more each month!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Did you ever do ballet?

Icey's Triple Dipper

Hi Crafty Friends,
Do you do "Christmas in July"? Digi Doodle Studios does! This month the Challenge Theme is... you guessed it Christmas in July. I decided to combine Christmas with Summer by creating this ice cream Christmas card with Icey's Triple Dipper. I love this little penguin and his ice cream looks delicious, although I don't think I have ever seen purple ice cream! I always spoil my nephew with ice cream when I visit, below is his triple dipper... he wanted chocolate vanilla and sprinkles! He is 5 now, I miss DAYS GONE BY (Time Out Challenge Theme) when he was this age.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
A: Me? I don't like ice cream, I like frozen yogurt so TCBY White Chocolate Mousse
