Card Candy Give-away


Hi everyone.  I'm trying something new today ...

I have made "Loll's Card Candy" ... a package filled with spring flowers, that are all glued together and placed on an acetate sheet with a pop-dot, ready to place onto a card.  I had so much fun making these sweet button-centered flowers ... and fun creating my own packaging too! :)

After I was finished making the package above, I had another idea.  This time I made a sheet of daisies with different colored centers that have been topped with Crystal Effects to make them shiny and give them dimension.  So fun!!





I have lots of other ideas for Card Candy that I will be trying out over the next few months, so you'll be seeing more of these.

____________________


Would you like some of the card candy above??

I appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time to join my blog and read my posts.  So I want to share some of my candy with you. :)

I have made another package of both candy (spring flowers and daisies).  If you are interested and are a member of my blog, please leave a comment on this post.  In one week's time, I will use a random number generator to pick one person.  I'll announce the name and ask that person to email me with their address so I can mail off the packages of candy.

Again, to all of you that take the time to look at my cards ... and especially to those who also take time to comment .... thank you!!

Here it is supposed to be Spring and we had a high of 25 degrees and snow flurries all day. So nice to visit your blog and SEE Spring!!

Wow, Lolly, your card candy is adorable and looks so professional!! I'd love to have some, but as you know I've got too much stuff to be decent, so I'd rather leave the chance to someone with less. They look like they took a lot of care and effort! Let me know if it turns into a little business as I will support you!
