Hello, Sunshine...

Good evening everyone!! It is almost Friday yeah! It has been busy the last couple of days and still a couple more ahead. But that is okay one day it will be spending time with kids and grandkids.

I have had this idea in my head for awhile but I didn't have any candy in the house to fill the little cup. I don't keep much in the house because I wind up eating it, and I definitely don't need it. I went shopping with my husband the other day and I finally got some. But what I didn't use for this card I wound up eating the rest after hearing from my husband when he broke down waiting to hear what needs to be done. I know I shouldn't do it but it sure tasted good!

I have had this cuttlebug folder for quite a while now. One day out shopping I saw it and didn't know if I should go ahead, so I did. I thought this was a perfect time to use it. I sure do like shopping with the hubby! He will encourage me to get things that I have to think about. I will always show him what I do so he can give me his opinion. He will always encourage me in what I do and it was so great to see his reaction when I showed him the email I received yesterday about the design team position. Back to this card. I embossed it with my cuttlebug and then used chalks to color it. The center of the flower I cut out so I could insert the cup for the candy. I used a cup from the instant drink I buy. Reuse is great, right? I also did a little airbrushing to soften the white some. I took my two way glue pen along the edges and used glitter to give it some sparkle. The ribbon is some from my stash. I really like how it turned out.

Here is a side view of the card.

Have a wonderful day and I will see you later.

Thank you for stopping by, Liz
