gumball machine...YUM!

I was playing around with my Something Sweet stamp set from the Occassions Mini!! I just pulled out some scraps and quickly made up a great card to pass along to any kid (or kid at heart!!)of course I stuffed my machine with "m's" as my 2 yr old calls them!

Thanks for looking!

I fought but....the card won...

ever have a card that just doesn't go right from the beginning??

Well that is the tale of this card!!

First it started with the Dazzling Diamonds tipping over...ALL OVER ME!! The way my leg was...there was no saving it.
Then there is the bottom piece of the card...the red edge punched piece that just wouldn't stay stuck down...I finally had to use some Sticky Strip to finally get it to stay!!

and the last straw...i couldn't stamp the words in the middle of the blue strip...EVEN with my Stamp A Ma Jig...How i managed to screw that up I am not sure...

...but I knew that the card had won at that point!!

I still plan to send it to my sister for her birthday!! She is on a cruise so when she gets the card I figure she will still be on the "sun, relaxing and cruise high" and won't even notice all the boo-boos!!
