Maybe Pulling Out of a Slump

So, you may have been thinking to yourself "Ashley's a little off her game recently."  And you'd be right.  Taking a week off stamping to make albums really did a number on me.  

I had no idea what I was doing when I started back.  Ok, that's an exaggeration.  I had a little idea of what I was doing, I mean, it's like riding a bike right?  Except when you come back to riding a bike, I'm pretty sure you don't just suck for the first week after.  

Anyhow, this is for a challenge that Angela from Unity gave us.  It was to make a card using polka dots.  I've never inked up this ice cream stamp!  FOR SHAME!  I love ice cream!  So, I decided to use it.  And after much debate (mostly between me and myself), I picked this background paper.  The rest kind of fell into place.  On the little circle it says "Hugs" not sure if it's clear in the photo.  Also, I used buttons instead of little flowers because my BUTTON BUDDY Maren and I were going to use buttons on our cards along with the polka dots.  You should see her card, she's SO talented (go on, pop onto her blog, you know you want to.)
