Hey Sugar

Happy Sunday to you all.  The blog has been a bit quiet.  Lots of activities in the last month have delayed my creative process.  Some good things, some not so good and other are just normal everyday chores.  Ha.  With summer coming I have a feeling the little blog will be quite more and more.  It is play time outside the craft room.  But no worries, my dear design teams will keep me busy and I’m sure I’ll be able to squeeze a challenge in here and there.

Like I did for today and the next couple of weeks will be jam packed with posts.

Paper Smooches‘ new SPARKS challenge for this week is a sketch.

Super fun.
I pulled out all my PS stamps to find what I wanted.
I saw this little yummy gum drop and an idea was born.

I ended up with a sweet little mini card.  Something to tuck into a little gift or bag.  It started out as a full sized card, but the long strings of gum drops just seemed lost, so I trimmed it down and adore this little mini so much more.  You can’t have a gum drop with out a little sugar sparkle.  Each one has a little sparkly glitter glue.

And since the sketch was so CAS friendly, I’m linking up to the Simon Says Stamp challenge as well.

    I was so happy to see your card in the Sparks line up Lisa!!! The gumdrops look good enough to eat! So cute! I know what you mean about summer, it’s getting more difficult to be inside.

    Sweet! I have a small gumdrop stamp from years ( maybe even decades) ago. It is one of my favorites, especially at Christmas time.

    OK, this is too cool! I remember lining up gum drops before eating them as a kid…dorky, but true 🙂 And of course they need to be sparkly! Such a perfect CAS card 🙂
