We all scream for ice cream

I have finally got round to creating an Ice Cream ATC card for the Live & Love Crafts challenge. I used a fleur di lis backing paper and an ice cream image that I obtained from Google. I layered the image over the backing paper and added a text box sentiment. The image was coloured with promarkers and the top edges rounded to finish.
This challenge is being entered into the following challenges also:

I am off to the Great British Craft Festival tomorrow with my mother :). Let's see what I bring home lol.

Audio Book Review
The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory
I have read one of Philippa’s books before and found it very entertaining, and this one kept up the standard. This book is about Catherine of Aragon, Henry the eighths first of his seven wives. It starts with her life as a young girl in Spain with her campaigning parents, and then progresses to her move to England and marriage to Arthur, Prince of Wales. She eventually falls in love with her young husband and they start planning for England, before he is suddenly taken before his time. Katerina makes a deathbed promise and then finds she has to wait six long, detrimental years before she manages to marry King Harry (Henry 8th). The book continues through to her court hearing.
I am not sure how much is fact and what is fiction, but the story is very captivating and interesting and there is enough fact in there to keep it stimulating. These books are always full of scandal and intrigue and old fashioned politics and it is fun to imagine how things were back in the 1500’s. A very good book to listen to.

Thank you for looking
