Well, I must say I was absolutely blown away by all the creativity with the shaped cards challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays last week. I do believe shaped cards will be something I'll be trying again, it was fun! But wait! There's more fun to be had this week with our newest challenge...
Yup, Sweets & Treats! Endless possibilities for this challenge in a fabby clean and simple style, can't get much better than that, oh, but it can...check out our sponsor for this week...PSA Essentials and what's even better? The prize package is worth $100, so be sure to pop over to CAS-ual Fridays to check it out!
When I first thought of this challenge, ice cream automatically came to mind, but then when I found out that National Lollipop Day was July 20th, which just happens to be this week, I had to go with a lollipop. So here's my little lollipop made out of yummy baker's twine :)
And here is a close up of my lollipop made with baker's twine:
For this card, I just cut a circle with sticky adhesive on it and wound the twine around until I got to the center. For the stick I used a small wooden dowel and painted it white and finished it off with a pretty pink bow. I had originally wanted to wrap my lolly in clear plastic and tie it off with a bow, but the plastic didn't photograph very well, so I nixed it.
The Girl Fridays have a whole bunch of yummy eye candy to look at, so come on over to CAS-ual Fridays, have a peek around and play along with us. We'd love to see you yummy creations in the gallery this week!
