A wonderful time to craft :)

Hello!!!!!!! It was a crazy week, but today I got to do some crafty things and I feel GREAT!!! Happy Mother's Day to you all. I hope you are having a great tie spending it with family or friends.

When I saw the challenge over at 365 Cards, this idea has been running thru my head about making a lollipop to go on my card. For this challenge, you had to use candy to inspire you. Every time I think of candy, lollipops pop into my head. I don't know why but it does :)

The second challenge I am using this card for is over at Stamp Something, this challenge is to make a birthday card for one of the DT members, and guess what, her favorite color is pink!!! WhoooooHoooooo, my favorite too :)

I have had this patterned paper from DCWV and have always liked the butterflies on it. Bright and cherry and very springy. I wanted my lollipop to match the patterned paper, so I cut out one of the butterflies that I liked and applied crystal effects, to give it that shiny look. After it dried, I took some plastic that my cardstock comes wrapped in (total recycling :) and tied a knot with ribbon to hold it closed. The stick is white cardstock and I kept rolling it until it was the size I wanted, glued the end down, and there you have it, a crafty lollipop :)

I hope your rest of the day is wonderful. I am back to crafting. I LOVE these days!!!!
