"Wood" you believe it?

Hi Everyone, my DT card today is for -

Last time we had a wood challenge, I did a sign for hubby and his garage door, which by the way is still there as new! I'm pleased to say. Anyhow, this time I have used a completely different piece of wood and "wood" you believe what it is? It's an ice cream stick from a mini version of the larger chocolate ice cream lollypop which begins with an "M".  😀

Our G.Nephew was 13 at the end of the month and I made this for him, he is a character, so I knew he would enjoy the pun and the colours, (he did). 
I printed and cut the papers and layered them onto black card. I coloured the sticks with Distress inks with colours similar to the striped paper and I added some wobbly eyes to them. I then added 3D gloss to the red words on the sentiment.  I saw the sentiment on the web so cased it.

papers - Digital Press
sentiment - the web
recycled lolly sticks
Distress inks - Mermaid Lagoon, Crushed Olive, Abandoned coral
wobbly eyes - stash
3D gloss - Nuvo Crystal Drops


What "Wood" you make for our challenge?  I hope to see you there.

Happy Early birthday to your grandson. 13 is a difficult age for both kid and parent, but not for grandparents ;-) Fabulous card I'm sure he'll love it.

What a fun and genius card Faith! I can see why your G. Nephew loved it. The sentiment is so dang clever and I love that you actually used real wooden ice cream sticks. Might they be from a Magnum ice cream bar?? I love the striped paper and love that you made your stick match it. The googly eyes are so fun and add whimsy to this card. Clever gal you are! Hugs, Brenda

Brilliant card for a 13 year old. I'm assuming you had to eat the ice cream to get those sticks...

Rosemary said...

what a clever and fun way to use the ice cream bar sticks, faith! love the fun addition of the wobbly eyes!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Such a fun interpretation of the challenge theme! Of course your nephew liked it - who wouldn't?! Thanks for having me as your GDT!

This is just too darn cute, Faith. Fun idea for your 13 year old nephew's card, Faith. Love it! :-)

This card is wonderful, very clever. I'm sure your nephew will love it. I love the colours used and the googly eyes are hilarious. I think they always add humour to a card. Colette xxx

Greta said...

Oh how clever & cute!

Martina said...

Great card, Faith! The young man will certainly be very happy.

Great card, Faith! We call those ice cream spoons over here. They are for eating ice cream that is sold in the little individual paper containers, like in schools and such. Lolly sticks made me giggle. A definite cultural difference there, lol. So cute putting googly eyes on them. I am right now making my Honey's birthday card and adding a piece of glossy card stock of wood planks on it just so I can do this challenge, so I had to smile. I should just say, yes, M'am, I will! heehee XOXOX

Mia said...

What a fun idea, Faith! What a beautiful card! Interesting and clever design! I am sure your nephew loved this great card. Kisses, my friend.
