Candy Card & Gameday

once upon a time
when I was a  little girly, arts & crafts was one of my favorite school activities. 
well ....that and chasing boys on the playground.
i excelled at both.
and so, as i’ve grown up both little activities are still my favorite...
although now the boys chase me, i digress :)

i really love personalized cards. 
one of my favorites to make is the Candy Card.
its the cutest.
and it involves candy!  

its very simple to make, just purchase a poster board and create your message 
using candy bars in the sentences...
i've made it  for girlfriends, co-workers... works for anyone, any occasion
they have always been a big hit!

sweet note and a sweet treat!
what could be better?

aaaaalso happy 1st game of the baseball season to my baseballer!

Charlie Bear is excited

You are the cutest thing ever! We used to make these and called them "candy grams" but my messages were not nearly as creative as yours! I just may make one for my hubby as a surprise- thanks for the idea:-)

Seriously, that's the cutest thing I've seen all week! I love it!

Brilliant! Probably not a cheap card to make, but it's worth the look on the person's face when they see what you made for them. This is so cute! I must try it...I'll have to save up for it, though. Lol.

Thanks for stopping by my blog (and following)!

We have so much in common! I chased the boys on the playground, TOO!!! :)

I'm married now. I had to stop.

That is such a good idea! I'd never thought of that before, but I'll definitely try a similar idea for my Mum's birthday or something like that. Great post! xxx

I'm going to start with baseball and move on to more important stuff (shh don't tell the guys I said that) but my dear sweet friend is probably going to get rained out on this first day. Sad times huh?

I've seen these cards in bloggy land a couple times and I totally want to make one! But then I'll eat all teh candy... and that might get ugly...
