I Scream, U Scream...

We all scream for ice scream.  Do you see your favorite summer treat in this group?  Mine was the Creamsicle, orange sherbet with vanilla ice cream in the center with the fudgsicle as a close runner up.   Well, this week the challenge at Pile It On is to use your favorite technique.  My fav is paper piecing otherwise I probably would have colored the pop orange to look like a creamsicle.  This fun image is actually 3 images that can be used alone or in any combination.  They are from the Wax Fruit Company this week's sponsor.  Some of the other design team members used images from Wax Fruit Company, you can see them at the Pile It On challenge blog where you'll also find all the information you need to play along with us, the rules, the linkey things, links to lots of other challenges, all the goodies are here.  The one thing you need to know is that you have to combine our challenge and at least one other challenge but we love to see you "pile on" the challenges. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Wax Fruit Co. digi image "So Cool"  
ink - hp printer; Ranger "Tattered Rose"
