Cool Treats Birthday Card

I had made this card for Rachel's 17th birthday which was last Sunday.  Unfortunately, instead of celebrating her birthday, I spent the day in the ER.  What a mess!  While getting ready, for some reason, my right leg collapsed on me and I ended up with a fractured right ankle!!  So instead of eating cake, I was getting x-rays of my foot, ankle and knee.  I won't bore you with the details, but I'm not a happy camper.  The next day we went to an ankle specialist and they gave me a walking boot - thank God!!

So all week I have been getting used to the boot and crying!!  I have to go back next week for follow-up x-rays to make sure the fractures are healing.  When I did feel like sitting and posting, my Internet went out for 2 days which brings me to today when it finally came back on.  My service provider is changing everything this month, so I'm sure it has something to do with that.

When I saw this stamp set from SU, I fell in love with it.  Rachel and I have a long history of eating popsicles together from when she was a little girl.  I figured she would love this card which she did.  It bought back a lot of good memories.

I used Pool Party for my base card with my first layer of Whisper White 4" x 5 1/4".  My layer of Watermelon Wonder is 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and my DSP measures 3" x 4 1/4".  I used my Frozen Treats Dies to cut out my pops in Watermelon Wonder ad More Mustard.

I tied some ribbon around my two layers before I adhered them.  Then I popped up my pops with dimensionals and tied some twine around them.  My sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set from SU.

The inside sentiment is from Cool Treats as well.  Here is a picture of Rachel and her Mom on her birthday.  It is hard to believe that she is 17!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I really have no idea where the past week went.  I am hoping for some warmeer weather though as I already feel housebound.

I entered this card at Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #241 - Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by,

I'm so sorry about your ankle! Just in time for the nice weather which will hopefully be coming soon. And then your internet went out, too. When it rains it pours. Rachel's card from you is precious to her with the memories and good feelings it evokes. She's become quite the young lady!

Oh Nancy.. I'm so terribly sorry about your ankle and all the added little troubles of the internet and such.. It really seems to fit the ole saying, when it rains it pours.. at least that's how I feel lately. I'm so glad you reached out to me on my blog, I was concerned but then convinced myself you were on vacation. By the way another fabulous card, Dear Lady my budget can't keep wanting more stamps.. haha.. but seriously everytime I see your cards I'm like there's another stamp set I think I need. Great Memories.. and lovely picture of Rachel and her mom. Please take care. (((HUGS)))
