Summer is Here!

It has been HOT the last couple of days. I'm not a big ice cream eater, but summer reminds me of ice cream. This card was inspired by many different ones on Splitcoast and I just kinda combined all the ideas together.

Another things that says "summer" around here are cherries. We've been picking cherries slowly for several days now. We even had my nephew help us today.

He was so proud to have filled a bucket 3/4 full and could barely carry it.(It got fuller than this when I took the picture)And while I was busy making bread, Bruce talked Benjamin into making him a fresh cherry pie. We have LOTS of cherries in the freezer, so will have lots of pies this winter I'm thinking. I will probably make jelly with the rest of the cherries on the tree. Not only is it yummy, but makes great gifts.

One last thing today that says summer is flowers from my flower bed. These are blooming right now and I love the colors.


  1. ACK! Benjamin can make a better pie than I can! I want your recipe! :)

  2. I love how you used the argyle to pattern the ice cream cone! Looks like you are having a fun summer.

  3. mmmmmmmmm, wanna trade for apples?
    I hope your July has been a good one. I've enjoyed catchin' up on your cards, they are always so cute and give me inspiration. thanks neighbor....;)
