Is ice cream a food group?

The answer, of course, is YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS! hehehe!!

Hey there "Sassy" friends! Happy Tuesday! I'm writing this post in St. Maarten!! But don't be tooooo envious...we're waiting for a big tropical storm! There, that makes ya feel better, doesn't it?!! I thought it might! LOL!! Seriously...what's with me and natural disasters?! Earthquake, hurricane, tropical storms...sheesh...all I need now is a volcano to erupt! (Thanks to my sister, Dee, for that pleasant thought!!) But...I digress!!

It's time for another fabulously fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog! Our hostess this week is our very own delightfully talented Sassy Jackie...and for our challenge theme this week, she's chosen...

"Good enough to eat - SC image with Food!"

Hence the question..."Is ice cream a "food group"?!

Now, I will fully disclose that my hips and thighs were created almost entirely from ice cream...it's true!! Ice cream is my food of choice over all things!! So...how lucky was I when I found this completely adorable Sassy Chery image?!! 

Her name is Sweet Indulgence, and she's available from Sassy Cheryl's Digis HERE. I just love her wrinkled up little face and goofy expression...and, of course, those BIG ol' feet!! Here's a supreme close-up of this cutie patootie!

 I used Whisper White and Pretty in Pink (Stampin' Up) cardstock...and DPs are from Magnolia. The sentiment came from Hampton Art...flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts...and the ribbon and pearls are from my ever-growing stash!! The image is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils, as always. Here's a little "artsy" view...

OK "Sassy" lovers...it's time to pop on over to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog HERE to check out the gorgeous work by Sassy Jackie and the rest of Sassy Cheryl's DT! Then you'll want to pull out your own craft supplies and choose one (or more, if you like) of Sassy Cheryl's images (You can find an amazing array of delightful digi images at Sassy Cheryl's HERE) and get busy making your own little project following this week's "Food" theme! And...remember to link your finished project to this week's challenge...because one lucky participant (selected at random) will win a $5.00 digi credit to spend at Sassy Cheryl's.!!

Thanks so much for visiting...and for your sweet comments that always make my day! Have a great week...mwahhhhhh!

Soooooo cute, Pat! And I'm with you. Icecream is DEFINITLEY a food group!I just love what you do with Cheryl's images!

Sassy Cheryl said...

Please, let's not do the volcano thing! I've think you've had enough 'nature' for a while. . . .don't you think!?!?!?!
And YES, ice cream is a food group and it's my favorite late in the evening. How'd you know?!?!?!?
Love it Pat. . . .and of course, all the extra photos are just icing on the cake.

Darling...still, I don't think this is a big footed image. Just in proportion! The snowmen, the baker, now those characters have some mighty big feet ( and we should, know!). Oh, and yes, ice cream is good for you- calcium, fat- oh, no, wait, fat... Oh, well, it is an oh, so necessary item guaranteed to keep you warmer when the cold sets in!
Hope the storm is gentle and that you get to enjoy this well deserved vacation! NO volcanoes! Enough is enough!

Dawn said...

DarnTootin it is!! how totally ADORABLE! so feminine and colored to perfection!! love it!!!

Sandy said...

You create the most fabulous card I have ever seen. Beautiful!!

Linda said...

Ice Cream is definitely a food group, it comes right after the food group of DESSERTS!

Love the way you aligned the roses and use of the doily.

Debbie said...

Well Pat, all I can say is that this is stunning!!! Love the pinks, and the sky is so beautifully done it is breath taking.


P.S. Stay away from Easter Island, Hawaii, Washington, Sicily, and any other place that has a volcano..got that...think you been through enough these last few days.

I love the pink and the sassy ice cream girl, she is so cute. It is too bad you are getting hit again with bad weather, especially while on vacation. I hope you fair well and enjoy yourself anyway.

To answer your question: Ice Cream is a food group in a class by itself. Neopoliteon fits all required obsessions in the ice cream dept. LOL

Hi Pat, what a beautiful card, the colours are just gorgeous and your colouring is wow! Am off to become a follower. Sounds like you are having an exciting holiday! It looks gorgeous from the pic. I have to admit I've never heard of the word 'chillaxin' let alone used it (but then I am a fair bit older than 13!). Sarah

Cynthia said...

Gorgeous job with this Sassy image, Pat! The shading you've accomplished with the Prismacolor pencils is fantastic.
