SCS Candy Bar Holder and Shabby Little Card

The bird card has lots of my favorite things on it. Of course, a Crafty Secrets bird stamp is there, but I also added a PTI Mat STack 1 die and the flourish is from the matching stamp set. I love the shape of this die, and I like using the flourishes as fillers when I have room. That's more Crate paper and ribbon, some vintage dictionary paper, and machine stitching, and as a final touch, a vintage button. Like many gals, I have a bit of a button obsession going on. And I like REAL vintage button best.

The candy bar holder is from SCS. I made a bunch of them for my oldest son and his room mates for Valentine's Day. They were not like this, but I liked them so much, I decided to make more. That's a Unity stamp, and it's my favorite ice cream image ever. The cool thing about this treat holder is that you just pull the ribbon, and out comes the Hershey bar. It does take a lot of ribbon, but hey, we have a lot of ribbon, now don't we?

Love your shabby little card, and on the other end of the spectrum, your candybar holder, too! I would have a hard time choosing a style that apppeals to me most, as I love anything that well put together. These are great, Carla!
