This is just too cute. Reminded me of the gumball machine I got for Christmas one year. It was a bank and I guess the gum was an incentive to put money into it.

Jennifer Bower said...

I saw a sneek peek of this in your Starbucks Holiday cup post! It is adorable as ever. I love her stockings, the expression on her face and the little mouse. Great job, Heather! Happy creating this week.

So much fun! It's hard to say which was most fun, the colorful gumballs, blowing a giant pink bubble, or simply the anticipation of seeing which gumball came out of the machine! Great job! :o)
