ihp DT challenge

Hello from CHA in Anaheim!  I've been rooming with Wendy Weixler and Karen Hunsaker, and it's been a great week!  Of course, Kate from i {heart} papers is doing some serious shopping!  Several of our team members were also able to come to the show, and we've really enjoyed spending some time together!  We missed our teammates who didn't get to come to "sunny" California, but let me tell ya, we've been freezing our butts off!  It has been in the 30's most mornings, and that's lots colder than this Florida/Louisiana girl anticipated!  I brought my warmest clothes, but it is still pretty chilly!  I am looking forward to home, loved ones, and warmer temperatures!  One more night and then I'll be headed back to Florida.  :)

Today is design team challenge day, and this month we've got some yummy Design Seeds color inspiration.  I chose to interpret this one literally by coloring GRS' banana split  in some delicious Copic flavors for a card made using Mojo Sketch 235!  The printed and solid background prints are from Fancy Pants Hopscotch designer paper pack. For some reason this print made me think of a flannel-backed table cloth that you might find on a table at a mom-and-pop ice cream parlor, so I thought it worked with this image...can't you just imagine having to wipe up some delicious ice cream stickiness!?  I remember going with my family to Borden's!  love Love LOVE (hence the hearts)!  Anybody with me?

Check out what the rest of the ihp team has created!
