TCP Tuesday 146 - Sweets!


The TCP Tuesday challenge for this past week from The Cat's Pajamas is a technique/supply challenge being hosted by my sweet friend, Julie Masse and she's got a sweet challenge this week! Make something and incorporate candy into it!

My first thought for this challenge was that I was definitely tired of making Valentines and my second thought was how much I've always loved the Spring Fling stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas and it hasn't seen ink in awhile. So I popped into the bulk food store next door at work and found some Easter candy to get the ideas flowing! Using the adorable TCP penguins for my main image, I set to work making this card with Echo Park papers that houses....
JELLY BELLY jelly beans! I just measured the jelly bean box and created a small box for the inside of the card to hold it. More Echo Park papers and another image (I LOVE that TCP Pooch driving along in his carrot car!) and sentiment complete the inside!
Once I figured out the box measurements, this was so easy to complete! I believe I'll have to make some more!

One more note... if you're so inclined, please continue to keep my daughter Kelsey in your prayers. We're heading back to the doctor again today because the issues she's been having are still not resolved. What we thought were anxiety attacks now seem to be more medical-related and the symptoms are causing the anxiety. We need to find out what's wrong so it can be treated and she can start to feel better because the past few weeks for her have been miserable. Thanks so much!

Happy Monday, and thanks for stopping by!
