Now who's for an ice cream neapolitan style of course, and not what you think!

Good morning and how was your weekend?
I had a busy time Saturday morning at work and on the afternoon we popped to the next village along where there was a Viking event going on.  I was a little disappointed that I didn't find Eric the Viking from the True blood series but then you can't have it all!
Yesterday my best pal and I decided to go fruit picking on our own.  Both sets of kids usually come with us on our annual trip to get berries to make jam with.  This year none wanted to come so more jam for us!
We had a lovely morning out in the sunshine picking raspberries and strawberries, followed by refreshments at a local garden centre before heading home.  We had a peanut butter and chocolate scone each and they were yummy.
Once back it was lets get the jam making head on before tackling the ironing with occasional stops to enjoy the sunshine outside.
On to today and this week's theme at The great scheme of things is Neapolitan ice-cream inspired, yum, I have to admit I really wanted an ice-cream whilst making this card, thinking "Neapolitan!"  MMmmm.

I have matted and layered paper from Memory box onto brown cardstock, adding stitching detail before layering down. I then cut out Papertrey ink Birthday horizontal die in brown and layered on to white card, 3D foaming to the background. To finish I have added a brown photo corner, pink ribbon and some pearls.

Why not pop over and join us with a little pink, brown and white number?

That's all from me today, back tomorrow with more card making.

Jam making too! is there no end to your talents Erika? How lovely, fresh, homemade jam, much better than the shop bought stuff. I can taste it now and together with the ice-cream you have tempted us with how many calories is that?! You should come with a warning :)
Glad you had a lovely weekend, hope the week goes well too.
Take care,

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
