Ice Cold Drinks~July Note Card Party


Edited to Add: July 19, 2012

Thank you for another wonderful Note Card Party! It surprised me because July is a traditionally slow month in Blogdom. Mr. Linky will close at 10 a.m. just in case there are any last minute linkers. See you in August!

***

Welcome! It's been some kind of crazy hot, hasn't it?! Thought that recycling these first two images of drinks featured at Suzy's Ice Cream Social in former years might be pleasing. (BTW, Suzy @ Kitchen Bouquet is planning an Ice Cream Social for the weekend of August 18 and 19. It's a lot of fun and a great way to share a favorite drink or ice cream concoction.)


Not sure about this first one, though. That orange looks a little radioactive to me. =D It was first featured *here.*

Everyone wanted to know how I managed to balance the ice cream container on the coffee can. (Easy—it was empty!)  First featured *here.*

Now I am ashamed that I ever posted this one...what a sloppy whomping mess. However, it sure was tasty and the recipe link is provided *here.*

And this is the joy of loading up images in the month between parties as the rootbeer was featured just last Saturday. I needed a fourth photo of a cold drink and this filled the bill. I do think my picture taking skills are improving a squeak.

Before anyone worries about citing where you found your photos...not necessary unless you wish to.

If you have any questions, you will find the directions in the Note Card Button provided in my sidebar and you are always welcome to email me...addy in profile.

Now let's have some fun!

Love Vee

  3. I love your choices this month since they're just what I need to feel a little "chilled out". My favorite is definitely the one with the tipped ice cream. That's cool looking.

    Thanks once again for thinking of and hosting this party. I think it's really fun to look back at old posts to find something.

  8. I'm hot and parched after mowing the lawn in 95 degrees, so your photo cards are calling me! Perfect for summer note writing! And I would say your last photo is especially spectacular!

  18. Vee, You've made me hungry! The second photo is amazing. Optical illusion: it looks like a liquid is being poured from the coffee pot on the ice cream carton (it's the straw). Took me a moment to figure it out! I've participated in Suzy's party in the past. It's so much fun, and I love trying out homemade ice cream recipes!
    Thanks for sponsoring this fun party.

  20. Oh man - think I'm gonna have to go make me an ice-cream float now... that orange drink looks good to me, Vee. Ever had an Orange Julius? Anyway, I'm thinking cool right now, it's SO hot and a buncha folks are having such heat waves this summer that are not really used to it. So far, it's not been like last summer here and I feel very blessed! Have a fun party - thanks for hosting!

  22. Your drinks all look delicious! Wouldn't it be fun if we could all show up and sit around your back patio sipping (or slurping) floats together?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Any one of those drinks looks good and refreshing to me. You had me laughing with your commentary tonight.
    Perfect subject for your note cards in this sweltering heat.

  24. It's been so long since i've had a milkshake that I'd have to pick that card as my favourite. I like the balancing act. Thanks for hosting this party Vee - and for the reminder.

  28. What a perfect collection of images for these warm summer days! There's just nothing like a cold drink to refresh the body.

    I would say your photography is great! And always improving.

    Thanks for hosting this again, Vee. It's a lot of fun!

  30. I love all the wonderful looking drinks in your notecards, Vee. They look just the thing for this hot weather. I think I have consumed gallons of iced tea so far this summer. Thanks for hosting this fun party!

  31. The drinks look very refreshing. I have been making smoothies lately when the weather is hot. Today was a nice cool day. But I am afraid it won't stay that way.

    Stay cool!

  36. I have a serious love for root beer, that pic is my favorite, darling little leaf cookies, never seen those before. Hope you are enjoying the refreshments of summertime! Have a really great day Vee.

  37. Those icy coffee drinks are calling my name! Oh, but it is hot these days. We went on a shopping excursion yesterday with my mom, and the air conditioning in my vehicle konked out temporarily. Uggghh. I'd love to have had one of your refreshing drinks at that point! (Either to drink or to pour over my body...or both!)

    Thanks for hosting this great party again this month!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the patio setting....all ready to curl up with a great book!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Why is it that I'm yearning for an orange float before breakfast? I'll have to check out that ice-cream social! You have a most refreshing not card theme here. I think there are a few like that this month. I'm off to check them out!

    BTW...I'm always amazed that you remember my grandkids names. I have a few, you know!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Another delicious summer choice, for note card pics.

    And good grief Woman, what's the matter with any of your photos?!?

    We all need to get off the kick of knocking our photos. Me included. Off, off, off... That kick! ,-) Agree???????

  41. I'm not sure if we have met yet, but we have several fellow bloggers in common. I crashed your party because of 'Coloring Outside the Lines' - she told me. Thank you for letting me be involved.

    Happy to have you along. It's not an exclusive group. Unfortunately, I have no way to reach you and your link is not working so I've removed it. If you see this, would you please try again. (I tried contacting Terri...she's another without an email addy linked to her blog. You gals!)
