Stamptacular Sunday: It's a Sweet Thing!

Hi! I'm so glad you could join me this week for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, this week our challenge was "anything BUT a card". I actually had another project in mind for this but when I saw this adorable girl (CC Designs) and her ice cream cone I just KNEW I had to make an Ice Cream Cone BOX... it's actually a CAKE BOX (I found the template(s) on Split Coast Stampers) and I just added my two scoops (circle nestabilites and then I cut a straight edge and used my Fiskars apron punch)!

I cut my box out and then I ran it carefully through my Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots Embossing folder...I had to do it a few times, I had to carefully line up my dots, but I'm pretty pleased with the result! I think it would be fun to put little candies in this box...or maybe some sundae toppings...what a sweet little surprise!

I also wanted to remind you that we have a blog prize for a good cause, $275 worth of goodies and you get to help a super nice person, click on the prize picture in the upper right of my blog for all the details...

House update: well, our construction crew didn't show up Thursday OR Friday...so we're a weekend behind, which wouldn't be bad except that my brother is moving across the country and we're his half-way point, so vigilent prayers are being said that I'll have a guest bedroom for him on Thursday when he (his wife and dogs) and the U-Haul show up! What is left is a little drywall sanding, door adjusting and carpet stretching...so.... if you think about it send some good "move in" vibes our way!

Thanks for joining me today...recipe below as usual...

This is sooo adorable. I love that little Kiki image too. I just adore how you embellished this with the bow and bling. I think I'll have to make one too. Also, thanks for the mention of the blog candy!
