I'M MELTING.......

It has been so hot here the past few days and I haven't felt like doing anything but lying on the couch and vegging. Thankfully, the coolest place in our house is my craft room so I got a couple cards done for today's FARM FRESH FRIDAY CHALLENGE.

We have a super sketch from Farmer Mary to work with and I liked it so much that I made two cards using it.
 I know I am completely nuts but when I saw MONDAY and WEDNESDAY the sassy new creeps from TGF, I immediately thought of their chubby bubble heads popping out of an ice cream cone.  Weird huh?



I ended up making a cupcake card first with a little pull mechanism (for which I am working on a tutorial) that pops her up. 
This is the ice cream one which didn't really come out as well as I planned but as the creeps would say "whatever" he he. 
Randi always makes the coolest pink hair so I decided to give it a try, looks a little like strawberry ice cream. It is definitely questionable as to whether this little chickie is sweet or not.  Does anyone know why I can't ever take an accurate photo of purple? It never seems to come out the way it looks IRL.  I fooled around with it in photo shop but it still doesn't look like the color that I actually used.
I used the same sentiment on the inside of both cards.  My daughter has lots of friends for which these would be appropriate.

Keep cool!
