Clearly Inspired Challenge #21 (CIC21)

    I have had an idea for a bubble gum machine in my head for a while, mainly, because I wanted to recycle some little plastic doohickies that my very expensive medicine came in.  If it cost that much the containers must be too valuable to just throw away!!  So this digital stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps couldn't have come at a better time!  I used the plastic from my containers for the machine's globe and the stamp for the rest.  I filled it with punched out hearts.  Personally, I love it, but I still have a hundred or so containers, so I'll have to come up with another project!
     I am also loving these dies from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I find they are the perfect size for so many sentiments I want to add.  The sentiment on this card is also from CDS, part of the Help for Katie set.


  1. Well, Suzi, how clever of you to be so 'green' and use your little plastic containers that way. I love it, and what a great card you came up with! I'm so glad you joined us for the CIC this month :D

  2. Holy cow Suzi! 100 containers! I sure hope you don'e have to take it now! They get us coming an going, either pay a mint for the meds, or pay a mint for the insurance that pays for the meds! I am so grateful that I qualified for disability, or I'd be paying an arm and a leg for all the meds I take! Not that I'm glad to be disabled, but at least since I can't work, I have help paying for the doctors visits, and the resulting meds.
    Love the little gum machine. How many Christmas cards do you send? Maybe you could make little ornaments on a card?
    Hugs, Jessica
