I really hope you are all enjoying the countdown, and the peeks.

Well this month as part of our countdown, Nichole asked her team to come up with a Valentine Day treat. While I LOVE all the holidays and coming up with fun ideas, by now you may know my love does not lay with any type of cooking or baking. I’m sorta the type that likes home-made containers, and prefers wrapping something store bought in a fun way! LOL! I enjoy taking the time to create the packaging, not the baking process! LOL! I’ll leave those cool cooking ideas to the rest of the girls 😀 Plus it saves me more time to stamp.

So for baking, cooking or anything like that, this is as home-made as I will get this season-


Home made chocolate flower lollipops, in my NEW! My Timeless Template -the Lollipop Along

Stop and smell the flowers


 Could this skunk be any cuter? I think this is so stinkin adorable! (pun intended). This gift item uses the NEW! RELEASE-Forest Friends. I’m totally loving that set!!!

I used my lollipop along template to create a traveling chocolate lollipop garden.

When I saw this skunk I fell in LOVE! He/She is adorable. I also laughed so hard when I saw it because I don’t know what it is, but Alexa (my 9yo) has a love/hate relationship with skunks. BIG TIME! So this is for her.

The handle is made from cardstock. I punched 4 flowers from pure poppy, and secured my handle between them with brads. I think its a nice touch 😀

Now the close up details-


I made my base from Spring Moss. Punched my holes for the lollipop sticks. These pops are large and I wanted them well seen, so I only used 3. I then punched a fence border (a Martha Stewart punch) and wrapped it around my template.

The “grass” is what is called wool roving. A hobby I THOUGHT I would try, but never did get to. I’m happy because the wool came in handy for my grass. I love when that happens.

I made my wrap from acetate, and stamped my sentiment in white stazon. I then stamped my skunk in black pallette ink (lightly heat set), then my flowers in white stazon. I used my Poppin acetate technique with Pebbles Inc pearlescent chalks for the flower to pop out in color. I then took a Souffle gel pen for the flower centers.

Easy peasy.

This project took MAYBE 20 minutes. Really simple.
