Home made Ice Lollies

Todays post has me remembering the Ice Lollies my Mam used to make, we had Ice Lolly moulds from Tupperware, they were the juiciest ice-lollies in the land, we used to experiment with flavours.

The only downside to it was when the ice-cream van came round, I was told to get an ice-lolly out of the freezer.

Summer boy is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and I’m figuring that he has a raspberry ice lolly clenched in his hand.

Coloured with Copic markers and teamed with Papertrey Ink dotted paper and DCWV striped paper.

he’s definitely ready to give someone a soaking.

What a lovely card Jak, and thanks sooo much for the trip down Memory Lane here. We also had these tupperware moulds at home, but we had no ice cream van, so we were just happy we had these, else we sure wouldn´t got any ice at all LOL. I even have still these moulds, as I got them from my mum, when I got my own kids, and now they´re all used for the grandkids here, so they have sure served us well.

A gorgeous card Jak. I remember those lolly moulds well. It was great to be able to have ice lollys even when the ice cream van wasn't around.
