The reason for this suggestion is backed up by a good story. For as long as I can remember, my summer time memories were filled with home made ice cream. My mom and dad have always loved making it and they are very particular about their ice cream makers. They always had the one with the heavy cedar bucket and the motor that had ALL metal parts - not cheap plastic parts like so many things are made of today. Most ice cream buckets today are even plastic! When their ice cream maker quick working (after many many years of use) my sisters and I searched high and low for another one to replace the broken one. Finally, we were able to find one and we gave it to them for their 40th wedding anniversary.
Now - after 15 years and MANY MANY bowls of ice cream, their maker churned out it's last bucket for the Labor Day Family Reunion. Recently Jeff came across the VERY SAME ice cream maker! I sent a picture to my mom and she was ecstatic! She said my dad had been searching the internet that day for a replacement and wasn't find anything!
So, that is the back story to Jeff's challenge to me. I told him I didn't have a stamp like that. He said you don't need a stamp - cut it out. But none of my cricut shapes are that shape I told him. He said - You are creative - you don't need that. Just create one! I couldn't stop thinking about it. I set aside my Artfully Sent card and pulled out some Saddle cardstock, my woodgrain embossing folder and set to work creating an ice cream maker Birthday card. Here is my final product.
I'll share the Artfully Sent card another time!
