One More Gumball Machine Card

Happy Friday everyone! Whew...this has been some week. I am looking forward to a quiet weekend and hopefully all of my family members will be well. There is some sort of virus running thru the house right now and it is really taking a toll on us. Thankfully, I have not gotten it, but everyone else has and it does not look like a fun time.

I have been in my studio playing with my gumball machine stamp again. I made a lot of different styles of this card and I promise, I won't bore you with post after post of gumball machine cards. But I do want to share one more. I paper pieced this one and I really like how it turned out.

I made this one for one of Patricia's male friends. She is giving her friends handmade Valentine's this year. Since she is in high school now, she "can't give out those dorky ones they sell at Wal-Mart". That's funny to me, because, just last year, those 'dorky ones' from Wal-Mart was all she wanted. What a difference a year makes! And so, that is what my stamping time in my studio will consist of this weekend and believe me, I am not complaining!

I thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Cute, cute, cute! I love the buttons...I love it all!

Oh, I hope you don't get sick. Hide out in your craft room away from that virus.

Take care!

Oh gosh, Barb! Another adorable gumball card. LOVE it!

I, too, hope you don't get sick! I think Kim's advice to hide out in your craft room is spot on. LOL Have fun in there, too!

Love the blog look, too. You find the neatest decoration for it. Love your style!
