It's Creative Tuesday! All flavors and push-ups too!

Ice Cream man!!!!!!!! Ice Cream!!!!!!!! 
There's still something about the ice cream truck coming down the street that just makes me lose it like a five year old.
So when Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday challenge was "Ice Cream", I just had to take a bite!
At first I wanted to draw an ice cream truck, but it kept on coming out looking like an ambulance. And it was more detailed than my skill set could handle. So I settled on a simple grape Popsicle, because it's my favorite flavor and I had a purple crayon handy.
The above picture is my humble submission. I used a Ticonderoga #2 pencil, an eraser ( lots of eraser) and Crayola crayons. I think it's pretty sweet.
Take a peek at Hot Toast and Jam for past and future Creative Tuesdays.

  1. you know if you stick your tongue to the roof of your mouth it helps with brain freeze...cute pic rene...

  2. mmmm, i love grape popsicles, too! Just had one yesterday! - cute drawing!

  3. I hafta show this one to my daughter! She gets "neck freeze" instead of brain freeze, but she'll get a big kick out your drawing.

  4. Oh this is adorable...just look at that expression....

    Oh I do hate "brain freeze"

    Very cute entry!

  5. Love it. Yes Dr. Oz talked about brain freeze one day. I tried his remedy and it works. I get one everytime I have a frozen margaretta.

  6. Oooh...and a DOUBLE popsicle like that was always an extra special treat! Not to mention a purple tongue! ha. So nice to have you back to CT! :)

  7. Love it, love it, love it, Rene! So funny and well done too I might add. TY for playing along on this one. So great to have you back with your coloured pencils too.

    this was great. It will look fun in the montage.

    BTw, you will note I avoid complicated too. Oh no, trucks are way too hard--trucks of any kind. lol

  8. It reminds me of my son yesterday. They'd been out and he'd had a lovely ice lolly, but he moaned about it melting, lol.

  9. Love ice lollies...blackcurrant are my fav's.. cute drawing..

  10. I think the challenges should be fun to do - and yours clearly was! It's summer, why complicate it with a truck?? Let's just keep it simple, fun, bright! :)

  11. drool. drool.
    Could really go for one of those right now! Hey, you stay in the lines good!!!

  12. Such a cute little popcicle. He looks scared of being eaten, i couldn't eat him if he looked at me like that. I love the purple too!

  13. Oh ice cream please it is 100+ all week here!!

  14. Hahaha, I think he has a little more of an issue than a brain freeze... more like hey who bit my head? You gave him a great expression!

  15. I love sugar free grape popsicles. And I like your "brain freeze."

  16. That is Grimace's little brother.

There was a haunting beauty behind her eyes, beyond her sorrow, a beauty that found its way into one’s heart and led them home.
