A Bowl Of Cherries

Happy Monday Everybody!  How was your weekend?  After having another 5 inches of rain on Thursday and a very dreary Friday our Saturday and Sunday was very pretty!  We went June, July and August with a very LITTLE amount of rain and now I guess it’s trying to make up for all the lost we had during our drought.

Today’s card reflects on a bowl of cherries from the Cherish Friendship stamp set. Enjoy!

I used SU! watercolor pencils and a blender pen for the coloring.  The Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack provided my backgrounds. 

Here’s a closer look ~

Here’s a look at the inside and the fold for the front of the card.

I simply cut strips, made a ‘V’ shape cut on one end of each strip with my photo corner punch and added a brad.  I mounted the top banner ‘Cherish yesterday’ on the top part of the card so that when closed it lays on top of the inside banner ‘dream tomorrow, live today’ (a stamp that I had purchased in the $ bin at a local craft store).

The good thing about this card is that I was able to use all scraps, except for the Crumb Cake base….now that’s a good thing! *smile*

Hoped you liked todays card, maybe you picked up an idea somewhere along the way, if so you have made my day!!!!  *Big smiles*  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think, I enjoy hearing from all of you!

Well, the image alone would have gotten my attention, but the fold & the inside make it even BETTER!
