Cool Creations

This month's theme for our Dueling Darlings was:


Barb and I were the hostesses and the Dazzlers kit contained the following:

DP & Ribbon:  Ice Cream Parlor by Stampin' Up!
Image:  Good Ol' Summertime by Stampin' Up!
Paper Straw: A Muse
Buttons & Flowers: SU! and Michael's or Joanns
Craftworkcards Candi – pink dots

We also asked all the Darling that when posting their Cool Creations on their blogs that they let us know what their favorite summertime cool treat is. Is it watermelon, ice cream, lemonade?

Here is my Cool Creation:

I had the idea of somehow incorporating a packet of Crystal Light into my creation so I decided to make a pocket card.  You can pull out the inside portion of the card and include a message.  

I like to enjoy many different summer time cool treats but I guess I would have to say my favorites, at least this summer, have been watermelon and fresh raspberries!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar and visit all the Darlings blogs to enjoy their Cool Creations.
