Card Candy

Boo, it's Monday again!
Anyway, as I was unable to attend Julie's craft day this weekend I really wanted to join the Card Candy Swap after seeing the lovely makes at Convention this year. I also wanted to have a play with the treat cups as I haven't had a go with them for ages, and as the swap is called Card Candy I went with it literally! So I came up with this...

I went with the Love You Much stamp set, which probably explains why I have used it a few times this week again as I was reminded of how much I love it,
Here is the candy part and yes, I did colour co-ordinate the mini smarties! lol! me? OCD? I couldn't possibly comment!
Close ups of the individual toppers, I coloured this one with the marker pens then hand cut the pieces,
Colour combo is Pear Pizzazz, Pretty in Pink, Marina Mist, Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso,
Boho Blossoms, Modern Label and Word Window punches were just some of the punches I used,
3mm taffeta ribbon and wide striped grosgrain ribbons used with Basic Pearls,

Not the best picture here but I added lots of dimension to the toppers too ;-)

and finally here they are together, phew!
Julie said they went down well with just a small smartie spillage! I am now looking forward to receiving the 5 swaps in return, of course I will show you as soon as I get them.
Thanks for stopping by today, I have a couple of friends coming over for a crafting day today looking forward to that,
Have a great day whatever you are up to, Stampin' Hugs,
