Beat the Heat at RTB

It's Friday and the bartenders have created some samples to help you "beat the heat" on the Raise the Bar blog! We'd love to have to play along with this fun theme! I started with this DP from MME's Paris & Co (if you'd like to enter into my blog candy offer, make a comment on THIS POST and you just might win this fabulous paper!) . I created my cone by cutting a triangle from kraft CS and embossing it with the plaid Sizzix EF. The 2 "scoops" of ice cream are actually the top portion of Verve's cupcake image that I paper pieced. The sketch uses Shannon's awesome layout for the Viva la Verve challenge for week #3 in the Verve forum. My new Verve goodies arrived today, so the sentiment was stamped on a small tag die cut from Vintage Cream CS.
What else did I use?
STAMPS: Carpe Cupcake (Verve), Love Notes (Verve)
PAPER: Paris & Co. (My Mind's Eye), Chocolate Chip, Vintage Cream, Fine Linen
INK: Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES: Herringbone & Plaid EFs, Small tag dies by Verve, Baker's twine, Paper doily, Fine Linen satin ribbon (PTI), Small flower punch, Pearls.

My blog candy offer is still on through the end of August! Check out THIS POST and leave me a comment for a chance to win FIVE new MME 6x6 paper pads!

Adorable cone and dp matches perfectly!! Yea, I just got my goodies today too (was thinking it would be tomorrow) but, hardwoods being put in and I guess, I'll have to smell them, stare at them, and dream!! I'm thinking you're right about the guesting together... totally thrilled and totally "skeered"!! Hopefully my MOJO will be pumped up and in action, LOL!!
