Wishing you an Ice Cream kind of weekend! :)





Hey Hey, friends!  Happy Friday!!  School is finally out and we are heading to the beach as soon as sun breaks!  We have a busy weekend lined up here but I need to unwind under a cool palm tree and splash in the turquoise sea!   I also wanted to show you one of the YUMMIEST recipies!  As you know, I have a slight Starbucks addiction *grin*.   Double tall Caramel Macchiato and I'm one happy chica!  Rummaging around on the net one day, I found a recipe for Caramel Macchiato ice cream!  And I tried it!  It's TDF!!   I loved it so much, I turned it into a recipe card {and it's all April's fault!  LOL!}  

For this recipe card, I really wanted something fun and summery - I chose My Mind's Eye summery paper "Breaking Free" which is one of the most luscious papers!  For the ice cream umbrella, I paper pieced it and popped it up on 3d dots to match the card.  My favorite part are the three little red felt flowers I found in a little shop in Germany last summer and they gave it just the right extra little something but not over the top and it still fits into the recipe album my daughter started :)





I hope this weekend brings you lots of fun and sun and all things wonderful!  {and maybe some ice cream, too!) *Smile!*

Big hugs!
Bigger Blessings!
