You're the Sweetest

Last month Madison and I got to attend a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at the nursing home where she volunteers with her Grandpa every Friday morning. She has been going with my Father-in-Law to do the Prayer Service and pass out Communion since before she could even walk and talk. All of the residents just adore her (as they should!) and she has a few favorites among them as well. 

As a Thank You for her service, one of the women who works at the home gave Madison a very nice gift of some Shopkins, so I wanted to make her a Thank You card. 

I used the stamp from the Itty Bitty set called "Sucks to Get Old" by Unity Stamp Company. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp it several times in a nice neat row. 

I colored the lollipops with the new Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Watercolor Pencils. They are my new favorite, I absolutely love working with them, you will see many more projects featuring them on this blog!  It doesn't show well in the photo but I also added a touch of Clear Sparkle Pen to the yellow and purple sections of the lollipops. 

And here is picture of my little volunteer, with her giant carrot cake cupcake. I am so proud of her, she has such a kind heart. 

Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Watercolor Pencils used: Parakeet, Fig, Pineapple, Asphalt, Azalea along with the Clear Sparkle Pen. 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
