By LORi Designs Tuesday -- Maxie with Sno Cone -- BLOG CANDY!!!!!

HAPPY TUESDAY to YOU!!!
It's time for By Lori Designs Tuesday Inspiration 
and we have summer themed cards for you this week.
(This is Post 3 of 3 for today!)
To see the 2nd post of the day, also for By Lori Designs, please click here.

Our family takes beach trips to Wild Dunes in the summer and they are always a great time!!
They have a little boardwalk with a t-shirt shop/surf shop (with tons of beach balls in the window), 
an ice cream shop, houses, etc... and this year there was also a SNO CONE vendor!
My girls were over the moon excited about it!

I'm not sure they had ever had a Sno Cone before, but they have now!
They even asked the man if they could mix colors and flavors to make a new color.
So much fun!!

I hope you like my card for your Inspiration Tuesday over at BLD!
Hop on over to see the rest of the DT's super fun summer creations!!



Here is a close-up of the sweet girl, Maxie.

I used the photo from YNSFFC02 for my inspiration colors 
& I am linking up with their challenge for the month of July.
I am also linking up with Marker Pop for this week's challenge #26. 

Here's a pic of my girls on the boardwalk on the way to the pool.
