{7.29.2013} super sized

oh yeah

There is nothing better than an ice cold cola (ahem, diet in my case) on a hot summer day.  I limit my soda drinking as much as possible, but sometimes nothing can quench a thirst like a diet coke.  I’m playing along in the Simon Says Stamp Summer food or drink challenge celebrating my love for this particular soda.


What could be better than a super sized coke???  Especially from QT (a local gas station around here) with their perfect round little ice cubes.  Mmmmmm, makes me want one right now.  Hold on, I’ll be right back.  heehee

I finally inked up the Think Fast stamp set by Paper Smooches.  Isn’t it fun?  I mixed and matched some stamp sets to create the saying and then added the little yellow bird at the last minute.  I wanted to make sure everyone knew how big this soda really is.  I have to give a shout out to my friend Emily Leiphart for the shadows idea.  She always adds little shadows to her stamps and they make such a difference.  Thanks for the fabulous inspiration dearie.

And of course I’ll be linking this up to the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  Heehee.

Grab your favorite summer drink and tackle the day.

    Love the changes you’ve made to your blog!

    Your card is adorable Lisa! I haven’t used my Paper Smooches stamps in a long while. I’ll have to get them out and create something.

Your comments really make my day, thank you!
