Sucker Bucket

What else can I call it??  lol

I got the bucket, Tootsie Pops, floral foam from the Dollar Tree.  I was wanting to only have 50 suckers, but with this being the first one I made, I wasnt sure on the size or anything.  So, there are about 60 Tootsie Pops and a 1 lb. bag of Dum Dum suckers.  The sign is supposed to be orange not red.  I guess the flash did that. *shrugs*

Happy Birthday Cindy!

Thank You card

I found a little time today to make a card.  My aunt liked the one I gave her, she asked me to make her one to give to a friend.  How can I say no?

Plain white card with patterned paper and plain light blue paper.  I inked the edges of the light blue paper before attaching.  I printed the quote in Word.

You'd be the last one to say that the things you do make a huge difference in other people's lives.

But it's the first thing I'd say about you.

Card and Sign

My aunt has been taking my mom out to eat just about every Friday for the last couple of months.  I mentioned to her that I would help her out with some money for buying my moms supper, which she does 99% of the time.  My mom is on limited income, so her having even $15 for a quick-eat out dinner is very rare.  So here is a card I a made for my aunt, sort of a thank you card, even though I know I dont need to say "thanks".

You don't choose your family.

on the inside - - -
They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.

This is a blank white card, pre-folded, with patterned paper that I am not sure where I got it from, a sticker and the light green is Bazzill cardstock.  The inside was written by hand, for that "personal touch".

Someone quit work a couple of months ago, they haven't moved anyone in her office.  One of my friends there, always says she wants it "cause she dont play well with others", lol.  She is sort of out in the open, in a cubicle.  That office would be nice for her to have.  Sometimes she needs to bring one or both of her little ones to work for a while.  And when she does, she takes her work into that office and closes the door.   

I wrapped a peice of cardboard in regular copy paper to hide the edge of the cardboard.  Then I layered dark green Bazzill cardstock, patterned paper, and light green Bazzill cardstock.  I printed with the computer "doesn't play well with others" onto the light green, and used a couple of stickers and some ribbon to hang it with.

The font is Scrap Calligraphy, I got as a free download at  

I am soooo proud of myself for getting TWO projects done this weekend!!  I know my husband is just glad I am using my stuff that is scattered out on the kitchen table. lol
