We All Scream for Ice Cream

It's time for a Fresh Brewed Challenge

June 8 - 14

Theme: Lots of Yellow

I love this theme... reminds me of my Grandma, who has been gone for way too many years! Yellow was her favorite color! I loved going to the farm to visit my grandparents. There was always so much to do there - exploring the pastures/fields, wading in the creek (though Grandma could never find out because she was terrified of water), gathering eggs from the chicken house (but ewwwwwwwww, the smell, not to mention the occasional black snake stealing eggs), and on warm summer evenings, making homemade ice cream!!! I always got to sit on the freezer to hold it in place while my Grandpa and Uncle took turns turning the crank. My reward? I got to clean the ice cream paddle as soon as it came out of the freezer. Yum! Yum!!!

So, in memory of my Grandma (and her favorite color), I created an ICE CREAM card for this week's challenge!
