Morning blog friends....

My great nephew is 5 today and I thought he would like this working candy machine.  It is refillable too, so that will keep his parents busy :) 

I actually had this made already but it was in pink so I used the metallic gilding polish in 'red bronze' (Creative Expressions) to cover the pink and it worked a treat.  This paste does give excellent coverage and dries very quickly

It is also excellent for covering white card to your choice of colour and it won't 'buckle' the cardstock 

I filled the machine with M&Ms and when Jack eats half the quantity there is a message inside the machine as shown below.... somehow I don't think he'll be bothered about that LOL

The sentiment is also by Creative Expressions and I already had letters die cut. With some left over card I will either die cut letters/numbers or make flowers/leaves.  I used the small boxes that come in a housing case and store the numbers and letters for future use
