A Sweet (End of Summer) Treat

Hi there!  I was surprised to hear that today is the last full day of Summer.  This year has certainly sped by!  So before the Summer is gone completely, I'd like to present you with a Sweet Treat to remember warm Summer days filled with sunlight, laughter, and outdoor fun.  


When I saw the row of cupcakes stamp in the Level 3 Hostess Set, The More the Merrier, I was immediately reminded of my granddaughter Samantha and her 4th birthday party in July.  She asked for a swimming party at Papa and Grandma's house.  To cater to small hands, we made cupcakes and served popsicles.  The children at the party (my granddaughters) were thrilled to swim, blow bubbles, draw with chalks, eat cupcakes and wear most of their popsicles; delightful entertainment for their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and great-grandparents. 


The Sweet Treats are colored with Stampin' Pastels and Blender Pen and rest on a piece of Rasperry Lemonade Designer Series paper accented with Dusty Durango Dotted grosgrain ribbon.  The card base was cut with the Big Shot using the Movers and Shapers die with the Modern Label punch window.  I love how the punch window piece mats so beautifully with the Modern Label punch.  I was excited to see that in addition to the Modern Label and Curly Label (that comes with the Movers and Shapers Bigz XL die), punch windows are also available to match the Scallop Oval, Large Heart, and Large Star punches.  If you can't get enough of the Movers and Shapers punch windows, the Holiday Mini Catalog has additional punch windows; including one that coordinates with the new Ornament punch! 

Make a stack of these Sweet Treats for your friends; a great way to share Summer fun!
