A sweet treat



Our calendar is packed with birthdays at the end of August and beginning of September, many of them for children, mostly boys. So I borrowed the Something Sweet stamp set from my downline Kelly and got to work, doing my best to use up lots of retiring cardstock.

Naturally, now I wish I owned the stamp set, and have barely dented my retiring cardstock supplies!

Here’s one of my efforts – a gumball machine card.  I kept to a limited colour scheme because I already had these kiwi jelly beans, which just happen to be Green Galore!

Don't forget that this stamp set is currently on special offer at 20% off! Normally £23.95, during August you can purchase it for just £19.16. As well as the gumball machine, it features a jelly bean, bubble gum, petal and leaf, fish, a handle (more on that tomorrow). Can't remember what else off the top of my head, but have a look in your Mini catalogue to see the full set. And to see the full list of special offer sets, please click here

  1. Great card for a child - and with the color scheme you chose, it would work for a boy or a girl. Well done!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
