DT- Cotton Candy Anyone???

Hello my friends,
It's been a crazy, busy week! I started with my new school kiddos & I think that after 15 years of teaching, THIS is the group that's gonna drive me to drink! LOL. Ok... just kidding---> I hope! :0  I still have a couple more teacher gifts to share- I haven't forgotten :) & the last 2 ideas/gifts, are practical & cute, IMHO ;)

Today, I have a card I have been dying to make! I saw the card style on SCS & fell in love, but it looked a bit complicated so I didn't rush to make one. Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb... duuuuuumb! This card is a 10 minute card (if that)- SOOOOO easy, & super fun!- Luuuv it!
Here's my card:
Most of the cards I saw were ice cream parlor cards, & I was going to do that since I had this cute Sundae Cone Snag' em stamp.

But seeing the "cone" reminded me of the paper wrap on cotton candy- so that's what I went with :) I mean any chance to play with fun flock must be taken, right?!
Here's a peek of the side:
I decided to really make them pop by coating the ice cream part with glue & adding the flock to create the cotton candy look---> and FEEL too :) I cut a slit into the CS & tucked them in so they would be more 3D.

Design credit for this card style is given to Lorri Heiling and a video tut can be found---> HERE. Note: You'll need a card base that's 4 1/4" x 11" scored in half (5 1/2"). It's not mentioned on either blog that I saw, so I thought I'd let you know.

Thanks so much for peeking today! Remember to grab the Snag 'Em stamps at the YMH store.
Hope your weekend is yummy :)
