Guest Designer Ruthie with Valentine's Treats!

Happy Monday!

This is Ruthie from September Ninth Designs. I am so excited that Joy asked me to be the guest designer on her blog this week! Thank you so much Joy, for this amazing opportunity!

Since Valentine's Day is exactly a month away, I thought it would be fun to spend the week sharing some fun Valentine's treat ideas. Today's treat is cute, inexpensive, and a perfect craft that kids can help make.
How fun are these lollipop treats?
 I used my Gypsy to open and size the flower, from the Artiste cart, to 2.25" tall and I hid the circle in the center of the flower. I opened a circle from George Basic Shapes and sized it to .30", placed it in the center of the flower, and then grouped them together. After grouped, I copied and pasted as many flowers as I needed to the mat, so that I could cut them out all at once. 

Once all my flowers were cut out, I inked the edges, stamped them in the center with the sentiment, and slipped the lollipop through the center.  You could also cut a small leaf and add that as well. That would be a perfect place to add a classmates name.
Circle: Cricut, George Basic Shapes
Dum-Dums Lolli's: Dollar Tree
Paper: K and Company
All Around Sentiment: My Creative Time, Classmate Valentines
Pink Tulle Ribbon: Michael's
 Pot: Michael's 

**Giveaway**

So I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway each day too! Today's giveaway is the My Creative Time stamp set that I used on my project!

All you have to do is leave a comment here and on my blog with your contact information and I will pick the winner, via random.org, on Sunday, January 20th and all the winners will be announced on my blog, Monday morning, January 21st.

See you back here tomorrow!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
