Gumball Machine

Remember the old gumball machines that used to be on the counter of nearly every corner store you went into? Waiting to see what colour was going to come out after you turned the handle was always nerve wracking. I was ever hopeful for an orange or red one and always disappointed when a green or purple one came out instead. Most times I was able to swap with one of my brothers, other times I just had to grin and bear it. The flavour only lasted for a couple of minutes anyway, so it wasn't long before you were chewing on a tasteless, sticky wad! Ahhhh, the good ol' days.

Stamps: Candy Shoppe by Beccy's Place


  1. Yep--memories! Great set and card!

  2. LOL! Isn't that the truth! But it was the thrill have turning the handle and having a special treat - we did not have candy, soda, or sweets in our home as we could not afford any of those luxuries. But the penny candy was always a treat!

    Your card and stamp are just delightful! Thanks for the memories.

  3. How sweet....I can relate of which color would come out and at time it was a disappointment when it wasn't the color I wanted too...
    Great looking card and love the background paper perfect for your image....well done and tfs
