Congrats, Joan! Please email ASAP wih your addy, thanks! To the rest of you, you know there'll be more candy soon, stay tuned!
Now for a simple CAS cards with punches. This is a card I made in a flashfor my son's 4th grade teacher Mr. Reese's birthday. While I don't know if these are his absolute favorite candy to eat were it not for the name, he definitely likes to associate himself with the brand and refers to his students as "Reese's Pieces" (their field trip tie dye shirts are of course brown , yellow and orange!) it's pretty cute!I used a Pure Luxury white base and popped up several circles I punched with a 1/4 inch punch, form Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown, Sweet Mango, and Wild Dandelion. Don'tcha just love circles? I have both circle dies and punches in almost every size, they certainly go with everything! This would be a fun way to make an M&M card for your sweetie, kids birthday, etc, in different colors. Now, so it's not just blobs of color (and you want a touch of the unexpected and wink of the candy), I notched out the bottom circle with a scalloped circle punch to create the nibble and rounded the card base with a small corner rounder punch. Greeting is from my Fun Year Round set and stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.
Enjoy! Hope your day is SWEET!
