Lollipop hop!

Lollipop Lollipop Oh Lolli, Lolli, Lolli Lollipop! Even if you don't remember or know this song you will have to admit that there is nothing that brings a smile to a child's face like a lollipop. Do you have a favorite kind or do you like the really sweet multi-colored ones?

This hop is for you and your love of lollipops. You should have came from Lissa Marie's incredible blog. Our creative crafters have been at it again creating all sorts of yummy creations for this hop. Our hostess, Jearise at, will have a sweet treat for you just for becoming a new follower or letting her know you already are one of hers and leaving a comment.

I made a simple card that I hope you enjoy. I used an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of card stock from one of the Recollections value packs I got at Michael's. Then, I cut the 5 sections of the doily rosette from the Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut cartridge at 1 inch, added the medallion and the medallion shadow to the top, rolled up a rectangle of card stock for the stick and voila, a lollipop! The lollipop was cut from Stampin' Up card stack. I am unsure of the exact color names.

On the inside of the card I made a sentiment using the Plantain Schoolbook cartridge. I used heart end caps around the words and cut them at 1 1/4 inches. Then, i used a VersaMarker to "ink" the outline of the banners and the lettering. The card stack used for the sentiment is also from Stampin' Up. I know the greeting "You're Sweet" is pretty generic, and I usually like something with a little more pizzazz, but who can resist on a lollipop card?

Thank you for hopping by today and sampling our flavors of lollipops and please continue on to the talented Amanda's blog.
