Cool & Sweet

Two cards to share today.
My husband has a large family and there are several during the month of July. And for July birthday cards you kinda think summer-y stuff right? Popsicles are summer-y 
I love PTI's Summer Sweetness stamp set - it has great sentiments and the cutest popsicles (yes... there are not as cute popsicles out there in the stamping world. really. ;-) By nature popsicles are cute - you're right- but in the greater popsicle world - these have the highest cuteness factor).
By the way there will be quiz at the end of this post regarding the number of times I have included the word popsicle.
I cut those cute popsicles out of some glitter paper I purchased at Hobby Lobby (It's Doodlebug!). This card uses the "coolest" sentiment. The second card uses the "sweetest" sentiment. It's a nice little feature of this set - being able to easily swap out those words. (The two lines in black are one stamp - the words "coolest" and "sweetest" are separate stamps)

I used Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Super Chevron for the backgrounds on the frames (which were cut with the PTI Monthly Moments Instant Photo #1 die). I also used the Herringbone impression plate from Papertrey for the base on the second card. I got my inspiration for both cards from .... darn I can't recall which design team member it was! 
Anyway that's all from me for today. Hope you have a good one (and ... it's 7... the number of times i said that word..;-)_
