Holiday House Call RESQ25

RESQ #25 Holiday House Call
Remember the Alka Seltzer ad from the 1970's - "I can't believe I ate the whole thing"? And, what about "Tums for the tummy". Well, it's that time of year...all that wonderful holiday food - what a feast of delights! With such goodies and sweets available during the holidays, who can resist trying "some of this" or a "dab of that". Mmmmmmmm. But don't overdo it or you'll wind up with a tummy ache! If you do, hopefully, it's nothing more serious than some minor discomfort. Luckily there are remedies out there that can make just about anything feel better. Keep some on hand just in case you over-indulge.
Your challenge this week is to make a card (or other project) that includes the following elements:
(1) polka dots to represent the effervescent bubbles of Alka-Seltzer (can be embossed, DSP, stamps, etc.),
(2) any shade of pink to represent Pepto-Bismol, and
(3) a round element to represent Tums/Rolaids.
Oh, and your project must also include a food element.
In my example, I used candy (stamp & DSP) as my food element, scalloped round nesties to represent the Tums/Rolaids, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug A2 embossing folder to represent the Alka-Seltzer (look closely...there are also little dots on the DSP), and SU! Pink Pirouette CS.

Please use the keyword RESQ25 if you upload your project to Splicatoaststampers or another online gallery. And don't forget to link your blog or gallery back here in the comments section so we can check out your creations!

Thanks for playing along with the Res-Q Challenge, and happy stamping!
