Tacky Tuesday Guest Designer!

Be sure to go HERE to enter in my giveaway!

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to have been asked again by the Ooh so talented, Ruthie to be Guest Designer for the Tacky Tuesday's Challenge. Thank you so much Ruthie!  I have always enjoyed visiting her blog over at  September Ninth . She is always inspiring me with her creative projects and I am so happy to be here on her blog today.

The Tacky Tuesday Challenge for today is "Cool Treat" (Ice cream, Popsicle, Shake) AND the word sweet in your sentiment.
Here is my project for this challenge:

I made this Z fold Birthday card starting with a base card 5 1/2 x 10 3/4. I scored it at 3 1/4 and 6 1/2. This yummy shake is from the Nifty Fifties cartridge cut at 4 1/2 plus the layers.  I also added a little ribbon, bakers twine and a cake charm. The sentiments are from  My Creative Time ~This n That stamp set and Wow, so many candles stamp set.


I  made a little pocket to hold a gift card from the DQ for some yummy cold treats!! I even used my sewing machine to stitch around it (which is hard to see) but I am proud as I have not used it in years! I embossed the pocket with the spots folder and added a couple stars from Once Upon a Princess cartridge cut at 1 1/4 and 2 1/2 and a cute little border from a Martha Stewart punch.


Now, lets see if  I can get this card off before I get tempted to grab that gift card myself and head to the DQ. This is one of my weaknesses. I LOVE the DQ :) I hope you enjoy my card and be sure to stop by Ruthie's blog over at September Ninth for all the information to play along with us!
