Good Morning It's me again here with my DT post for

 How much fun is this guy?! Meet Reg Butterswaithe from Just Inklined. I actually started to make this card for my Husbands birthday (as we sell ice cream for a living) but I didn't get him finished in time so he's now in my box ready for when I need him. The papers are Basic Grey and I've fluffed up his ice cream with Woodware fluffy stuff!
