Orange Mivvy,,,,,, YUM !! :-)

Hi all :-) It is getting quite hot now and perfect ice lolly weather ,,, and my fave is ,,,, YEP ,,, Orange Mivvy,, ice lolly with ice cream on the inside.. yummy :-)

I am here with a midway reminder of the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge,,,,


I have just seen the weather on the UK news ,,, hopefully the sun will show up sometime this summer ,,,, :-) Do you still have a hosepipe ban ?? lol :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $25 voucher on offer this time :-)


I don’t own this stamp (yet) it is a stamped image from my teamie Christine ,,, thanks xxxx :-) This one is called Brain Freeze and is now sitting in my basket awaiting checkout !! :-)

I coloured with copics and added Rock Candy Distress stickles to the lolly ( it looks real !) and star dust Stickles around the edges. The papers are from Lawn Fawn and I used plain white card coloured with Squeezed Lemonade DI from the Spring Seasonal set for layering. I cut out a sun and parasol on the Silhouette Cameo, have I told you haw FAB that machine is ,,,BRILL !! :-) The button and stripe ribbon are from Crafty Ribbons and I used a little Hero Arts Twine to finish.

I decorated the inside a little bit too, the sentiment is also from Hero Arts.

thanks for looking :-) some of the DT have joined in with this midway reminder so please hop on over to see what they made :-)

Great card Lols, I just love that fun image. Makes me think not of a Mivvi but an Orange Maid. My friends and I used to go to the pictures on a Saturday and we sometimes had an Orange Maid. Might be showing my age here! Thanks for joining us at TG this week.

Hi Lorraine, love this stamp, and we call them popsicles, or with the ice cream, creamsticles, but whatever you call them delish!
Love the bright sunny colors. Your sun and umbrella are perfect for this little scene. Gotta go get me a popsicle from the freezer, keep them for when my grandkids stop in (wink, wink)
