Birthday Treats

Hey, all! Sorry I've been so quiet here on the blog. Not only have I been busy with fun summer activities, but every time I sit down to craft, the mojo is nowhere to be found.
On a good note, I've been focusing on my health, & I've lost 25 lbs. since the end of March (almost 50 lbs. since my heaviest a few years ago). Woohoo!

Anyway, on to the craftiness. My buddy, JoLynn, is celebrating a birthday tomorrow, so I threw together some treats for her. 

I was inspired by this cute paper sack, so I used similar colors & a polka dot theme.

JoLynn & I are Zumba buddies, so I wanted to give her some healthier snacks.
I started with a pack of watermelon gum...
 and added some Crystal Light packets. I also threw in some 100-calorie pack snacks for good measure.
Here's the glittery card I paired it all with.

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Tart & Tangy, A Little Birthday Cheer (SU), Pucker Up (A Muse), Feelin' Fruity? (My Favorite Things)
Paper: PTI white, Raspberry Fizz, Echo Park & American Crafts pp
Ink: Only Orange, Pixie Pink, Yoyo Yellow, Green Galore, Taken with Teal, Basic Black
Accessories: SU circle punch, Martha Stewart glitter, dimensionals, American Crafts flair, Michaels ribbon
