About Me

My Photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Old Age SUCKS!!!!!

Not really, but I made this too cute display for a birthday party and thought you might like to see it too!!!!
I purchased these suckers at Wally world for 10 cents each.  Yep, they were in the Valentine's clearance and thought they went well with the sentiment. There are 72 suckers in all and I got the display for free, after all it is just cardboard displays that the sucker company furnished with their product. You can see that they originally were $1 each..... 90% off ain't bad, huh?????

Close-up of one of the suckers.  They are a hard taffy!!!! They were very large, about the size of my hand.

I had to decorate the sides as well, I used a fiskars lips punch and adhered them to the sides.

Now using my Expression and my Gypsy..... {I heart my Cricut} I used the Birthday Bash cart. and placed the lettering just so and cut out a shadow using a metallic paper and then cut the reg. font out using pink cardstock.  Here they are at the party before they were stripped........Bwahahahahahahaha!!!!
Ohhhh.... I forgot that I used a strip of pink cardstock and punched out the lips and then adhered the strip to the front.
Until later, my sweet lollipops.....Gotta split.....TFL!!!!
