Summer Fruits...







                         Hello there!  Did you have a fun 4th?  We headed off to Diamond Lake for a fireworks show over the lake.  It was beautiful! I hope yours was too.  It is my turn over at the RRR blog today.  I decided to  make a couple of fruity birthday cards.
                               I again have been having fun breaking into some old stamp sets.  I used sets from PTI and WPLUS9.  My papers are old papers from Jenni Bowlin and Crate Paper.  I used seam bindingsPlaid ribbon in red and Pink, and Karen white crochet lace.   I also used sweetheart blossoms and leafs in parrot green on my mason jar.  I added little details with some mini stamps and had fun with shading.  I love, love, love these and how they turned out.....hope you do too!  Hugs, cherry

Beautiful Bows challenge at RRR!!!







                          Time for a fun challenge over at the RRR blog!  We are doing a beautiful bow challenge.  Sooooo fun and inspiring.   I dug into my vintage milk toppers for this challenge pairing them with fun retro pattern papers.  Old October Afternoon along with some digital papers.  I used lipstick red seam bindingmoss green seam bindingtextured two tone light blue ribbon, and bakers twine in Cherry to hang the tags from.  I topped my bows off with cute little sweetheart blossoms and edged the bottoms with washi tape and vintage laces.   I am thinking these will be adorable as toppers for chalk painted mason jars!  Enjoy!  Hugs, Cherry

Enjoy Friend...





            Craving a little vintage loving today first off a old fashion card....I blended cheerful yellows, teals, and a bit of black.  Loving this color combination.   Papers are oldies but goodies, as are the diecuts.   The pocket can be used to tuck a gift card into..or even a little note.  I added Bay Leaf seam binding along with a gorgeous vintage rhinestone button.   At the bottom a bit of washi tape and vintage lace.
             My other projects are the prettiest vintage clip earrings that I just had to do something with!  I created a couple of fun birthday tags,  keeping with the soft yellows and creams.  I added vintage crochet doilies, vintage seam bindings, just in love with these!  Hope you enjoy!  Hugs, cherry

Polka dot sweetness...






                                        Hello to you, hope your Summer is starting off good!  Popping in to share this little pincushion I made.    I don't know about you...but polka dots make me swoon.   I had to use this big gorgeous bloom on this sweet sachet/pincushion I sewed .   It was the perfect topper!  I layered it with a vintage lace hankie along with some lipstick seambinding and a bit of cherry twine.  Topped it off with a vintage rhinestone and a stamped tag.  LOVE the red and dots!   Hope you do too.    Thanks for visiting, Cherry

RRR blog hop!!!!














                         Time for a fun blog hop with RRR!!!  You should have made your way here from Kathy's blog.   If at anytime you get lost along the way, start back at the RRR blog.   Fun Summer colors in this month's ribbon club assortment.  I was going to go bright...but for some reason ended up going rather soft.  I had this sweet bicycle image that I wanted to use and just let that take the lead. It says Merci so I made a little fry box as well , along with the card, as a thank you.   I used the gingham on both projects, just  love the sweet Plaid ribbon in pink in this collection.    I also used Baby Pink seam binding.   I softened the bicycle wheels with a couple of sweet Sweet heart blossoms in pink.   Well that is it for me.....your next stop is back at the RRR blog!  Have fun folks!                                                                                                          Cherry
