Good Morning, Friends!

It’s hop time!   The mastermind behind Artful Inkables, Kristin, has done it again.   This month’s releases are so awesome.   If you have arrived here from Sherry’s blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start back at Kristin’s blog to get the whole show!

Every one of us knows someone who is sick or injured.    You can’t throw a rock these days without hitting a person with H1N1, right?    Well, today I am sharing a project I made with the new Monster Medical set from Artful Inkables.   I was really excited when I saw this set, because I knew exactly what I wanted to do.   I needed lollipops for my project.   Finding suitable lollipops was quite an adventure!  I looked at every store I could think of and was about to give up, when we happen to go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast.   I don’t know if you are familiar with Cracker Barrel, but they carry the most incredible selection of old school candies.   There nestled in the hundreds of jars of candy were these Clove Honey suckers.   They not only looked yummy, they are just what the doctor orders when you have a sore throat or cough.



The suckers are on these really cool wood dowels with balls on the end.   They are slightly tilted, so I had to come up with a ”cover” for the candy so I could afix the decorative medallion.


I used a block of floral foam to hold the suckers for presentation.   I covered the floral foam with a box bottom, slightly larger than the foam and then tucked tissues in between the suckers to make it look like an arrangement.


Of course, I had to make a card to go along with it :).


Here are my deets:

Stamps:  Artful Inkables‘ Monster Medical

Colors: Very Vanilla, GP White, Buckaroo Blue, Creamy Caramel

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Buckaroo Blue, copics

Accessories: Ribbon, scalloped circle punches, eyelet border punch, sticky tape, scoring blade, swiss dots embossing folder, dimensionals, floral foam, clove honey suckers, tissue,  circle punches, candy dots, word window punch, hole punch


This project takes me back to the days when I was a little girl.  After each visit to the doctor, he would give me a sucker.   Ah, the memories! 🙂

Now it’s time for you to hop on over to Michelle’s blog (and give her a warm welcome!  She’s our newest Inkgirl!!).   I am sure she will have something amazing to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by!   I hope you have a blessed day!
