Chocolate Chip Mint...



Hi There..  I am back to join in on week 2 of
SUMMER OF COLORS
Ice Cream Inspiration..

This weeks color is Chocolate Chip Mint..
Mint is such a weird color to me.
With the name like Mint you would think it would have more of a green tone.
But to me it seems to have more of a blue tone.
I kinda think it looks like turquoise.



Here is our yummy inspiration photo



So I hope you are not getting to tired of
seeing my Art Journal.  Cause I been playing in it again.




This time I pulled out my Butterflies.




All in all a pretty simple page.. The toughest part was
fussy cutting the butterflies.
I had lots of messy fun with the background.




I was on a roll so I also made a post card.. 
Hummm..  Who shall I mail it to...  

Speaking of Postcards there is a postcard swap going on
and there is still plenty of time to sign up for it. 

Just pop over to this link and get the info.. 



If you would like to see what all the other gals created this week
 for the Summer of Colors
you can pop over to Kristin's blog.




Thanks so much for visiting me..
I think I am going to go have some Ice Cream right now.
I pretty sure I have some Rocky Road in the freezer.


Hugs~
