Newton's Nook Designs' Inky Paws Challenge #23 ` Summer Lovin'

Hello Everyone!  Today a new Inky Paws Challenge begins at Newton's Nook Designs!  The new theme is 'Summer Lovin''.  I decide to use some fun popsicle images from the new Summer Scoops set along with an accessory & sentiment from Newton's Summer Vacation to create this fun summer card:

You're Cool Popsicles Card by Craft Math Chick | Newton's Nook Designs

I colored the popsicles to match this fun popsicles paper from Echo Park's Fruit Stand 6x6 pad.  I took the 'You're a cool cat' sentiment from Newton's Summer Vacation and used a marker to just ink up the 'you're' and 'cool' and stamped it on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched it with a 1 1/4" circle punch matted with an orange 1 3/8" circle to resemble the sun.  Then I thought it would be fun if the orange creamsicle were wearing shades, so I stamped the sunglasses image from the same set on Baja Breeze cardstock, colored in the lenses with a black marker, cut them out and paper pieced them onto the creamsicle.

So what is your favorite ice cream treat?  Mine is those Strawberry Shortcake bars?  With the crunchies on the outside and that yummy strawberry center in the middle?  That was always my treat of choice when the ice cream man visited our neighborhood as a child.

Are you ready to get your paws inky with us and play along to win a prize?  The Challenge winner will receive a $10 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs' online store and an Inky Paws Challenge Top Pick Badge to add to your blog!  AND IF there are more than 15 participants, Jen will choose TWO winners, so be sure to tell your friends to play along too!  Please visit the Newton's Nook Designs' blog for all the details!

Can't wait to see what YOU create!  Have a happy Friday!
