Yum!! Ice Cream!

Hi! I'm sorry to have been absent these last few days, you see my birthday hit on a weekend this year! That's a good thing! DH and I went away for a couple of days starting August 7, which is my birthday! We had a great time at Geneva-on-theLake (yep, that's the name of the town!), Ohio.

A quick story-We were in a winery in the middle of the afternoon on Friday. It was pretty empty with one other group having lunch at a table. We went to the bar to taste some of their wines. A couple comes in (on a whim they told us) and said it was the man's birthday! then the waitress took cake to the table of diners because it was that gentleman's birthday, too! Now, I realize people go out to celebrate their birthday, but what are the chances! The young man was BORN in 1975, the year I graduated highschool and the older man was born in 1934! It was great!s, two close ups! I don't know how to delete so it stays!
A shout out to my friend, Michelle (Milwaukee Mommy) who inspired today's card with this CARD!
The paper pack is by K& Company. The card base is Hunter Green from SU (I don't know WHEN I last used this color! The pink is Purely Pomegranate and the pink dp is the opposite side of the green floral one. The flowers behind Tilda came in my Summer Kit from Magnolia Sweden, but the large flower is one of FOUR in a set from Diana at Magnolia-licious.
They are #407 Jungle flowers.

Copics used are:
E000, E01 and E93
Y21, E54 and E37
B41 and B21
YG01 and YG25
RV91, R83, RV32 and RV34

Thanks for visiting! I'll be back tomorrow with a new release from Angel's Landing and it's a Blog Hop!
Have a great day!

Belated Happy Birthday greetings! This card of Tilda with the Ice Cream is indeed yummy! I love the pink and green colors together, so fresh and summery. And Hunter Green, I don't think even SU uses that color anywhere, but as a base on this card it's perfect. Your coloring is, as always, absolutely gorgeous!

This is absolutely ADORABLE!! And guess what....we share a birthday!! Yep, mine is August 7th as well!! Although it sounds like you had way more fun than I did, lol. Mine gets lost in the shuffle...my son's is the 5th & my grandma's (who turned 90 this year!!) is the 3rd. But that's fine with me....it just means I haven't had a birthday in a few years :)

Happy belated birthday to you, my friend!!
