What's Shakin', Sugar?


Good morning! After a crazy day yesterday, it's been very nice to just stay home and be a homebody! We took my son for allergy testing because he has had several outbreaks of hives in the past couple of months, but (luckily) it seems to be some kind of viral infection. He has NO allergies! :) It was a rough appointment for him, but he did such a GREAT job! We were so proud of our little trooper! We treated him by taking him swimming at the pool at our local gym. We decided to rejoin the gym (we LOVED it when we were members a couple of years ago...BEFORE children!), so it was the perfect opportunity to take the kiddos.

I made this card using the new Pink Paislee Sweet treats papers as a starting point. I just LOVE this paper! The concentric (but funky!) circles with the heart in the middle are so adorable! And I thought the lollipop from Unity's Delectable Delights would be a perfect match.... So I paper pieced! Fun, huh? The "sweet thing" sentiment is actually from the Cupcakes a la Yummy stamp set (which will be back in stock soon!), but I used the "What's Shakin Sugar?" on the INSIDE of the card! I covered the rims of both circles with Pink Paislee Bubblegum Pixee Stix glitter. This glitter isn't overly SPARKLY, ya know? It's more of a pink sugar kind of look...perfect for this project! :) OH! And I used my new Koh-i-noor pencils Drew got me for Christmas to color in the bow...I love the result! LOVE IT!

My son was allergy tested (when he was 2) too, that is no fun!
Have a great night!
