Valentine's Day Treat

Thank you for your concern about Maddie. Last week was honestly pretty rough. She made some progress through the week, and we started to see the "real" Maddie come out a little. She did have another seizure yesterday, however it was a minor one. Of course we don't want any seizure, but we can at least handle small seizures better than the "grandma" seizures. It's honestly something I never want to see Maddie go through again.

With everything going on with Maddie I thought I'd make some Valentine's Day treats in the hopes it would cheer me up.

I'll tell you a secret about Chase and I. We seriously love Fun Dip. It's like we're 12, but we still love it. Yummy colored sugar. Here's how I created these little Fun Dip wraps.

1. Cut 2.5” x 10” stripe of patterned paper.
2. Score twice at 2” and 5.75”. Wrap piece around candy.
3. Punch decorative edge and adhere inside patterned paper.
4. Tie bow around candy.
5. Stamp image and sentiment, die cut.  Adhere with foam tape. 

 Stamps: (Look Up!) Practicing Creativity
Ink: (Craft White) Stampin’ Up!, (Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Cardstock: (Pretty in Pink) Stampin’ Up!
Patterned Paper: (Lush Red Diamonds) My Mind’s Eye
Die Cut: (Labels 1) Spellbinders
Ribbon: (Pink Twill) May Arts
Punch: (Apron Lace) Fiskars

 Thanks for stopping by today!

I hope things continue to get better for Maddy!
Your treat has some adorable wrapping...I remember loving the "stik", but not the "dip" in Fun Dip!

Fun dip is a riot! {Truth be told, though, it's been years since I've actually had any.}

I'm glad to hear Maddie is on the mend. Here's hoping next Monday shows its face with an even brighter report.

I'm a little behind on blog-reading, so please forgive the untimeliness :)

Sounds like poor little Maddie has been through a lot. I'm happy to hear she's doing better and hope she continues to improve. Hugs to you!
