Peanut machine

 There was a challenge to make a card with a food image and kids in mind during the VSN last week over at Splitcoast Stampers.  Here's my creation:
That stamp set is Treat Yourself from Stampin Up, and the paper is October Afternoon. The punched tab says 'Peanuts...1 cent' for that I used my Just Rite tiny letters and horizontal block. The background on the tab is Verve's bountiful Backgrounds. Gotta love those dots!!
The 'gumball machine' has a piece of acetate for the 'glass' and it was stamped with Cherry Stazon.
The peanuts were fun to cut out and I had to glue them down cuz the little buggers wouldn't stay still. I do believe it was the static on the acetate that caused them to move all over the place until I lifted the acetate and then they all 'stuck to it'. It was hilarious until it got to be a time issue. Remember we only had 45 minutes to create our cards.
Thanks for coming by!

So cute, love the peanuts in the machine, so clever. Funny about the acetate and static, I'm picturing you trying to beat the clock!
