Snow is melting.....

                   Heyyyyy did you all know Easter is in March this year?  For some reason it never seems quite right when Easter is in March to me.  I guess because growing up it was always in April.  Either way....it is not that far off.  With the snow finally melting and Spring officially about a month away I have dipped into my Easter goodies.  Lots of pinks, greens, and blues.  So many gorgeous colors to choose from! 
                   First up a baby lamb....they have my heart.   When I was a girl we always chose the long way around to town so we could roam the countryside looking at all the baby animals.  The second card is close to my heart as well because it actually has red in it for Easter!  Love non-traditional takes on holiday colors.  Lastly just a sweet altered art plaque.  Most ribbons as usual are from RRR.  Hope you enjoy...and if have snow...hope it is melting!  We shall see green soon!  :)  hugs, cherry

Cherry picking.....

                            Popping in this Wintery Thursday to share a new challenge at RRR.   It is an "Anything Goes" theme and we have paired up with Polly's Paper Studio for this challenge.  Ginny had these adorable Summer cherries digital images that I kinda gravitated too....hmmm wonder why?   I decided to create a berry basket deck it out and fill it with cherry tags.  Kinda over the top but I had fun with this Summer goody in the dead of Winter.  I used the gorgeous green ribbons  from the ribbon club assortment from this month along with Moss green and lipstick red seam binding, and also a bit of Cherry twine.   Well that is it for me....I do think I heard from a little birdie that Ginny is doing a give away of free digis over at the RRR blog.......you might want to check :).   Hugs, Cherry

My girl...

                  Happy Thursday!  This is my day with my Dad to go to the "big town" to get groceries and go junking.   We really enjoy it and it gets us out of the house!  With all the snow we are getting cabin fever.
                  Popping in before leaving with Just a few random projects for you today.   The first two are my projects posted over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  A Valentine puppy tag...pure retro!  I used Paradise Aqua seam binding along with lipstick red seam binding.  I topped off my paper bow with the prettiest two tone cottage roses in blue.  I love them!!!
                   My other card is a "just because" card.......an encouraging card.  I have had these Crate chipboard letters forever and decided to grab them and use them.  I used baby pink seam binding on the card.  Well hope you enjoy these goodies!  Hugs, cherry

paper therapy

I have a kaleidoscope of Valentines for you....feeling rather sad.  Missing my Mama something fierce right now.  So creating all day to day seemed the only thing to do.  Bright cheery colors....reds, pinks, sweet nostalgic images, mini love letters....how can that not bring a smile to your face?  Losing myself in my studio.....not looking at a clock.   I needed it.  I just simply want to share with you.  I know there are those out there that understand where I am.  Some days are good....others are minute to minute.  Grab a smile when you can and a laugh.  Than take a shower and the tears just fall.  Instead of pushing the "scary' feelings away we must try to embrace them.  I just hope they come fewer and fewer as time passes.  It helps me to share this...and I hope you understand.   These papers and what they become heal my heart.  Therapy comes in many forms.   Thank you for listening my friends.   Hugs, cherry
