Lollipop Cards & Matchbox Suitcases

I had so much fun stamping with my Northern Idaho friends last

Friday. Of course we had to swap, this time we did cards and 3D items. Man, did I ever get some cool things to share with you later this week.

Lollipops are made by stamping the image from the Sweets for the Sweet set. Punch out with the 1" Circle Punch. Mini Glue Dot them to a lollipop stick. I cut about 1" off, it was too long. The bag is a 2x2 Ziploc bag with the Ziploc part cut off and tied with a bow.

The little suitcase is the matchbox die cut. I punched a 1-3/8" circle in the front and added a handle. I just made a slit with an E-xacto knife to inset the handle made from the new 1" square punch (coming soon). They are filled with yummy Godiva caramels!

After we got done stamping, I headed home to pick up my family and drive over to Pocatello for the Greek Festival.
George's family was in charge this year and the boys were both going to work a shift.

Benjamin cooked rice pilaf with Yaya.

Nicholas handed out programs and greeted the guests.

We had a great time visiting with everyone and catching up. And the food was awesome!!

The next day we headed over to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to see my sister and play for the day. Look what we saw on our way out to Teton Village! He was right there on the side of the COOL!!!!

Tomorrow it's Yellowstone National Park for the day before heading back home. It is nice to get one last trip in before school starts on the 30th.
