"Have a sweet day!!"

Christmas mode is on hold and I'm going for summer fun!!  It's been pretty hot around here so we've been into ice cream, freezy pops, etc!!  But this afternoon, it is raining!!  I'm happy because we need rain!!  The brook near us normally gets very low in summer, but it had been all dried up for a couple of weeks! 

Back to cool summer treats... we like 'em!!  With 4 kids, we've made a lot of Popsicles* over the years!  Red is my fave!!  So that's where I went with this card.   *my computer told me to capitalize Popsicle!  I guess because it is a brand name even though it has become a pretty generic term.

Challenges...
Cardz TV Cricut Cardz Challenge #112 - "Summer fun" -I don't like to sweat, so eating cool treats is my kind of summer fun!!! :)
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #119 - Yummy, yummy (summer dessert) -I tell you, red popsicles are the best!!
Cleary iStamp Clearly Inspired Challenge #55 - "Some like it hot" (images for hot weather, colors on the warm side of the color wheel: yellow, orange, red, or maybe even spicy foods, etc.) -I need Popsicles in hot weather and it is red!! :)
**I think this is the last challenge at the 'old' blog.  They are moving HERE.

Too, too cool, Debbie. Love the dotted ribbon with the great patterned DP. I prefer orange Popsicles!

Sparkly popsicle? WANT. I'm with Marie, I love orange best, but hey, it's a popsicle, I'm not going to get too picky about it! Love that bright argyle pattern too!

Fantastic Card! I think that i might need a popsicle right now.I just wanted to say thank you for replying to my post on "Struggling". Sometimes i feel so much better when i just let out what my heart is feeling. It's always good to hear others feedback and life experiences as well. I will keep my eyes on the Lord and listen as i go forward. Thanks again,
