Phindy's #44 Sticky Elbows and Biscuit Shoes

It's Friday so its a Phindy!  Yes folks, it is time for another challenge over at Phindy's Place and this week we have a great sketch to inspire you. I hope you will find the time to play along with us and if you use one of Phindy's gorgeous images in the challenge you can enter the same card twice - and if you can enter twice, you double your chances of winning of course!

The image I have chosen to colour this week is called 'Sticky Elbow', for quite obvious reasons if you look at her, LOL. I have created a hot, sunny day for this young lass whose ice cream is going anywhere but in her mouth. The 'blazing sun' made from vellum & a circular punched shape from Fiskars. The cloud paper is from Papercraft Inspirations, the yellow background from Brenda Pinnick and the horizontal mat you will probably recognise as K&Company. The sentiment is another gem from Ginger's House and the gorgeous ribbon is from Remarkable Ribbons. The melting ice cream has been given its sheen with a drop of Glossy Accents and the centre of the daisies on the horizontal mat glisten courtesy of dose of glitter glue.

Now, I know you are wondering about the title of my card....the first part is explained already in the name of the digi, but the second part?....Well, when my daughter was little she referred to her first pair of shoes as her 'biscuit shoes'. They looked remarkably like the sensible pair worn in the image, both in style & colour...but we could never work out why she thought of them as 'biscuit'. LOL. Of course, she doesn't remember herself so we will never know!
