Summer!! :-)












































When I think of summer, one thing which comes to my mind is Popsicle! lol! I remembered that House Mouse line has a couple of images. A couple of weeks ago, we, the HM BUDDIES in the group chatted about the color of the popsicle for this image. Some weeks ago, I saw this picture at Moxi fab, and I'd been wanting to color it like this picture on the right. Then a couple of days ago, I saw this picture in ads from nearby grocery store, and since 4th of July weekend is getting closer, I decided to color it like the picture below, also :-) The sentiment was colored with red & dark blue glitter pens. Both main images were attached with pop up glue dots to give a bit of depth to the card. I'm submitting the pink one to House Mouse & Friends monday challenge this week. The theme is "here comes SUMMER"! :-) The card is pretty much self explanatory :-) I'm submitting 4th of July card to Cupcake Inspirations, Crop Stop challenge ('Show your national colors!') and Delightful challenges ('Red, White & Blue'). Both cards are rather clean & simple but I really wanted to color these popsicles in different colors which I was inspired by the photos I've seen :-) Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you'll all have a wonderful Independence day!!

These are two of the sweetest cards! Not just the popsicles, but the whole idea and just how you created two entirely different scenes with the same image. Too cute, Eve. You're so creative.
