Five Minute Friday: Sucker!


Happy Friday!  It’s hard to believe that this is the end of summer!  Boy, that just flew by!  We’ll be doing some hiking and visiting with friends in upstate NY (well, upstate to me…not upstate to people who live UPSTATE near Canada, like Tracy!) this weekend.  I’m hoping the weather cooperates with us.

For today’s card I cracked out my new Rock Candy Distress Stickles (you know, the ones I was gushing about the other day) and knew it would be perfect with the lollipop image from Mix Up of Cuteness.  Seriously, this set is perfectly named.   The sugary coating on the lollipop is perfect.

I stamped it in Palette Noir and then colored it with my Prismacolor pencils to give it that classic swirly sucker look.  I layered it on top of a scalloped scrap of Lime Rickey paper.  Then I laid down three pieces of glimmer ribbon – two yellow and one lime.

I finished it off with my Oval Nesties and stamped the greeting from Hugs from a Bug in Palette Chartreuse.  I love how perfect the saying was with this image.

Thanks for popping by today.  Be sure to come by next week for some store news!  Have a great weekend!

I like this card!

I wanted to thank you for sending me the Into The Forest stamp set. I won it over on Lori's blog (Inking Aloud) I love the set. I just finished making a card with it. Thanks for the super cute images. Hugs, Sarah
