Sweetheart Lollipop Flowers




I was fooling around with some large chipboard letters today and decided to paint them white then smother them with glitter!!! Something about them looks really yummy!

---> HERE <--- is the
Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Photo
that Inspired today's project


I created large accordion flowers which was inspired by the cupcake liners in the photo


I love this white heart that I placed in the center of the "O" to represent the
White Heart shaped fudge from the photo


I didn't have dowel rods until later this afternoon so I glued CHOPSTICKS together, painted them then added a green ribbon to cover up where I had glued. The Green Ribbon made perfect "Leaves" for my flowers!

Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge: Valentine;

I try to squeeeeeze in some crafty and blog time here and there but sometimes at the end of the day I am just pooped. It ends in March so I will be full force again very soon...yeah!
So how have you been? Hope life it treating you and the family well;0) Gotta get the kids up and ready for school so we will chat again soon.
