Happy July Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

Every July there was a parade in the small town my Mom grew up in, and after the parade her dad would take her for an ice cream soda. So every July we make a point to get together for ice cream, and I always make her a card to celebrate our 'ice cream in July' day. For my card this year, I pulled out a country print paper stack with silver foil accents and the Upsy Daisy Pop-Up by Karen Burniston.

I used the new Alpha to cut the "M"'s for MOM, using the silver foiled heart for the 'O'.

Inside I used the new Beach Charms, Sweet Treat Charms and the the Alpha again. I like how you can personalize a card with the Alpha die set. And the Upsy Daisy is so fun - and different than anything else out there.

It looks like I will be hand delivering this card - and the ice cream - to my Mom in hospital, as she has been there since June 28th and it looks like she will have to remain there until they can find somewhere with full care to place her. (Insert sad face here)

I sure your mom will enjoy her ice cream treat...even if it is in the hospital. I know she'll appreciate the lovely card. She can display ice creams for the remainder of summer!
