Wings and things..

New challenge up at RRR ....this time it is wings with ribbon.   Let your imagination go wild with this one!   I decided to go soft and shabby with this lace butterfly.  Adding hints of gold with my blues.  I used seam binding in bay leaf along with 1/4 natural crochet lace from May Arts at the bottom and top.  I never tire of a little vintage and shabby!   Thanks for stopping by ya'll.  hugs, cherry

ribbons used: May Arts 1/4 natural crochet lace, Bay leaf seam binding, 1/4 inch Scor-Tape

Blog hopping with RRR


Time for blog hoppin with RRR.   You should have found your way here from Victoria's blog.   If at anytime you lose your way, just start back at the RRR blog.   Sweet summer colors in this delightful mix.   I went pretty simple with my card and just chose to use the pink gingham in the club assortment.  I liked the bold pop of color it added to my card.  That is it for me...next stop is Jenn's blog.   Have fun ya'll!  cherry

Your smile is planted in my heart

Howdy!   Cherry here to share a card today. I have had this sweet image from Crafty Secrets sitting on my desk and finally decided to use it.  I used my favorite reds and garden greens for the main colors.   I used red lipstick seam binding for my red bow and the lace from this month's ribbon club assortment as a border along the bottom half.  Hope you enjoy!  cherry

fat cat redo

Happy almost 4th to you!  I have an altered chipboard box to share today.   It had a door to it as you can see ....cute but I had different plans.  I cut it out and went to town covering it in papers, images, and little sewing bits.  I added Rosemary natural crochet lace around the outer edges along with 1.5 light blue crochet lace on the outer sides.  I topped it off with faux canvas ribbon in natural to make my big bow.  Hope you enjoy!   Have a great 4th tomorrow!  cherry

summer in session..


Tomorrow is my son's last day of his sophomore year.  This means a little flexibility in our schedules.   Which is very much welcomed at the moment.   Now if only my allergies would let up! 
                             With Summer soon in session I created this ultra bright and sweet gift bag for someone special.  I used the Polka dot big bitty bags as my base.  I layered a paper border and homemade paper fringe at the bottom along with a doily, diecuts, and a rosette made with the Scor-buddy mini tablet.   My fun ribbons come from this months ribbon club assortment .    Hope you enjoy!   Cherry
