Tuesday Trigger: Porch Play

Today was Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry's. Did you cash in? I certainly did! I went with two of my co-workers and we were lucky to not be in a long line. I'm not sure what was the reasoning behind the short line. Maybe it was the dreary weather. A little rain wasn't going to come between me and my ice cream though. I got "Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream", which is "vanilla ice cream with fudge covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl."

Here's my take on this week's Tuesday Trigger challenge: Porch Play. I wanted to incorporate the colors in the trigger photo as well as use some of my new crafty items. I don't really have any teal ink that matches the pillows, so I decided to use some teal paper that had some scallops in them which would match with the ruffles on the pillow. While the flowers in the photo are red, I had a yellow fabric flower on my desk that I had made for another project but ended up not using. It fit perfectly with this yellow, red, teal theme. I chose a cheerful celebrate sentiment because I'm sending this card to my friend Page. I got a text from her today saying that she has been admitted to pharmacy school. Hip hip hooray!

Very cute! Love the fabric flower.

We skipped Ben & Jerry's and my kids were devastated :-) I was a mean mom and told them the lines would be too long.
