And the best reward after a hike? Shave ice! In Hawaii, shave ice is the most popular cold treat. There are many shave ice shops in every neighborhood and people have their favorite haunts that they consider "the best".
I handcut the shapes and ink distressed the "syrup" with Distress inks and then water splotched the surface to give it an "icy" look. I also hand cut the wooden spoon and ink distressed the edges.
I couldn't find a suitable sentiment so I typed one up in a fun font, cut out a banner and attached it to the front of the cup.
I'm linking my shave ice card to the Shaping Up Blog Hop and Giveaway. Have you seen the awesome shaped cards? Hop over and take a look. It all starts here at JJ's blog. You'll be blown away by the creativity of the talented ladies who were all part of Gallery Idol 2012.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a cool summer!
Note: "Shave" ice is the local way we refer to "shaved" ice. True, the ice is shaved, but it's always been referred to as "shave ice".
