Happy Birthday Popsicle Lady!

Hello Friends,
Here with a quick card share.  It is my beautiful and sweet Mother's birthday today!  She is truly the loveliest woman I have ever known and I am so honored to call her my Mom!  Happy Birthday Mom!

My Mom is known for handing out popsicles in the summertime especially after a day spent swimming and playing in the sun.  Here is the card that I made for her using the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #91 - Hot Time in the Summer for my inspiration.  I am also linking to a challenge on the CC Designs Blog.  Challenge #2.

I used the CC Designs stamp:  Birgitta with Popsicle and created the sentiment on my computer.  The sweet scalloped layer that Birgitta is stamped on as well as the paper mat behind it in bright pink are made using the Cheery Lynn Designs Rectangle-Scalloped Card Stackers.  I love the small scallops on these dies and use them often when I am coloring larger sized images.

The little pink "blingy" bow in her hair is from my new favorite ETSY shop - Fee Fee's Splendor.  So fun to add these to a card for gift giving!

 My son and I are on our way over to spend the afternoon with my sweet Mom right now.   Thanks for taking a look at my card!  Happy Weekend!
:) Jill

Edited to add:   It looks like I missed the deadline on the card challenge by 4 you won't see my card linked over at the Cheery Lynn Blog this week!  Oops!  They changed the deadline to Saturday hoo!  :)


  1. LOVE the bling in her hair - FAB find - and your Popsicle story about your Dear Sweet Mom! Also the tiny scallops on your mat are a Great detail! Your Mom will LOVE this card! I do, too!

  2. aw, this is so cute, Jill! Reminds me of the days back in the 1950s when I was just a "wee brat" LOL - we wore "sun suits" which tied at the shoulder - all summer long we wore these to play in because of the heat. Mom would make popcycles from juice or kool aid. We had little ruffles around our legs like that. Darling card. Thank you for bringing back those memories! hugs, de

  3. Happy birthday to your mom! What a special card you made her! Love it! Such special memories this card will bring to her (and you when creating). I have a great popsicle stamp by House Mouse. They are all eating one with a fan! Just thought I would mention it in case you want another one to add to your collection!
