*AAACards #192*

Happy Sunday, crafty friends!  It's time for a new challenge with the clean and simple team at AAACards!  For the next two weeks we are looking for your creations using only one corner of your card front with the added optional twist of childhood memories.  Be sure to share your creations with us HERE for your chance to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge.


I was going to skip the childhood memories portion of this challenge, but instead I got to thinking of some fun things I could remember from being a kid....  and one that stood out to me was neopolitan ice cream with my Grama.  Now, as a kid, I hate the "pink ice cream" (or at least I thought I did) so Grama would always give me just the chocolate and vanilla.  And it wasn't often in a cone, but usually in one of her yellow melamine shallow bowls.  She'd add sprinkles to it for me.... and we'd get to use her old fashioned ice cream spoons to eat it.  The bowls she used were perfect because they were shallow and you could easily lick the bowl clean before asking for more!

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Neenah Classic Crest Cover Solar White 110lb; scraps from my stash
*Patterned Paper:  My Favorite Things Dots & Strips Bright
*Dies:  Poppystamps Whittle Ice Cream
*Images:  Simon Says Stamp So Cool
*Ink:  Versafine Clair Nocturne
*Etc:  foam adhesive; Be Creative double sided tape

  2. Remember the neopolitan block clearly! It was a Sunday lunch treat if the ice cream van happened to time it right - no home freezers in my childhood. Always used to have it with tinned mandarins, such a weird mix it seems now. Great memories shared and remembered, thank you Nancy!
