Popsicle Cards

At Scappy Moms Stamps, the challenge is "Anything On a Stick!" (Make a project with a stick). I actually made two similar cards.

The inside:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Green or Blue, Black and Transparent Patterned 
Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed Popsicle, page 45 (Layer 1 Base, Layer 1 Shift, Layer 2 Base, Layer 2 Shift and Layer 3 Base)
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Make A Wish "Sweet!", "EAT Cake!" and "Happy Birthday!"
StazOn Jet Black Ink
Pink Chalk
Wooden Ice Cream Stick
Mounting Tape

I haven't used my Cricut in awhile, but as soon as I saw this challenge, I immediately pictured these cards and I knew what cartridge I wanted to use. After cutting everything out and chalking the cheeks, I adhered the stick to the back of each popsicle. I glued the transparent background only where the popsicle would be, so no glue would show through. I double mounted the popsicles because of the thickness of the wooden stick. I thought the "EAT Cake!" sentiment was funny...I hope everyone gets it. 

With the warmer weather, we have had a couple of really nice family days. On Sunday, everyone was home (including Gianna) and we spent a lot of fun time outdoors. We all played with Gianna while she played in her sandbox, her inflatable bouncy and her playset. My husband and sons also played horseshoes. It was a really nice day. Today, my husband, middle son and I played Chip and Putt. Haven't done that in awhile. The funniest part of it was that on the first nine, we ALL tied in score! WE all thought that was incredible. We played the second nine and if you can believe this, we all tied again!!!!...straight across the board! I don't think we could EVER do that again! lol I really enjoy these kinds of days!
