  1. Very nice cards. My favorite is the Gumball Green one.
    Also like those candy dots that are your clue for the treasure hunt.

  2. Cynthia, you have been busy again. Lots of nice cards out there. Great card for the Red Hot Stampers sketch challenge. I love black and white cards. 🙂 Thanks for playing with us again this week.

  3. Cynthia, Great Card! Love black and white and this layout is the perfect layout for those little stamps. Thanks for playing along with the Red Hot Stampers sketch challenges.

  4. Hi Cynthia, love your cards for the challenges. Love your colour combo and products you chose for your sketch challenge this week. Thanks so much for playing with this weeks sketch at The Paper Craft Crew! Carolyn x

  5. Those candy dots are the coolest things – I have yet to use mine, but I am inspired after seeing your clue today since it reminds me that I have them.

  6. Nice cards! It looks like you were having a lot of fun creating! Love the Gumball Green ribbon with the clay flower embellishment! Thanks for joining us at SUO Challenges!

  7. I have yet to play with the yummie candy dots…most likely will end up loving them as much as the bling and pearls. Off to do some more treasure hunting. Cheers.
