Summer this year in Minnesota has tended to be on the cooler side. We really haven't had a lot of hotter weather. But on the hotter days we have had, we definitely take advantage of all things summer. Running through the sprinkler, heading to the splash pad, swimming in the lake, and eating sweet icy treats!
The little popsicle from this card is from the Sweet Kawaii set by My Cute Stamps.
I colored the popsicle image with Copic markers, cut it out, ran it through my Xyron face down to cover the image with adhesive, and then covered the front with glitter - a perfect technique for a chilly treat...
The alphabet set and dots & flowers background stamp are by Hero Arts, the polka dot background by Papertrey Ink, and the scallop border punches are by Fiskars and Stampin' Up!
We are heading to my parents to spend the afternoon on the lake. It's not super hot today, but I am sure there will be boat rides and some swimming too...!
