I Scream, You Scream . . .

. . . We ALL scream for ICE CREAM!! hehe! Yep . . . in my mind, ice cream is just another of the essential food groups! Hey . . . it's Tuesday! Yippee! That means there's another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog?!! Wheet whoooo! (that's me whistling!!) Soooo . . . this week's hostess is the very talented and oh, so "sassy" Miz Judy! And she'd like to see . . .

Fancy Edges, Diecuts, Punches, 
and/or Borders!

Easy peasy!! But . . . WAIT! Before I show you my card, I have to brag a bit!! So, apparently, everyone in the "crafting & cardmaking" world knows how to "MERGE" digi images! Well, everyone BUT me!! I've been holding out . . . out of sheer stubbornness, I'm sure! hehe! Well . . . as you are about to see . . . I'm a MERGER now!!! hehehe! I'm so proud, I could just eat ice cream! 
Oh . . . and speaking of ice cream . . . (nice segway, huh?!) Noah looks like he's going to end up sharing some of his ice cream with Sassy Sally! She can be so persuasive!! Here's a close-up . . . 
OK . . . so I merged "Sassy Sally's Butterfly" (which will be available at Sassy Cheryl's for a limited time) with "It's the Thought That Counts" (which is available HERE in Sassy Cheryl's online store). If you'd like more info on merging . . . check out this fabulous TUTORIAL by Debbie Pamment!!
