A Cherry On Top

Winner at Dragonfly Journeys
Top 3 at Broken Fairy
Top Pick at Creative Corner

A fun new challenge begins today over on Elisabeth Bell's World challenge blog. our theme is 'Strawberries or Red.' I hope you will play along with us. :) would love to see what you come up with!

UPDATE - I completely botched this one, folks. when I was told the challenge theme, I thought it was strawberries OR red. I have just discovered it is AND red. my poor little card does not work for the theme afterall. so I need to try to buy a stamp and get it here as fast as I can so I can get another card made. Please disregard my post and make a "strawberry AND red" card. so sorry. :(

****working on a new project... will post in the next day or so. 

Since I don't YET have one of her cutey images with strawberries on it, I chose to go with a red theme. in the summertime, one of our favorite fruits around here are the yummy cherries. in fact, hubby just picked up a huge tub of tart cherries from our fave fruit farm. I put 3 big packages in the freezer to use later for baking, and added some to an apple pie for him. :) made such a tasty mix with the fresh apples from that same fruit farm. he was quite the happy camper!

I've used 'Sweet Sundae' and papers from October Afternoon's Cherry Hill collection. all dies except the cherries are by Spellbinders the red frame has pretty cherries embossed on it. :) the cherries are from Sizzix. fun sentiment is by Create with TLC, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and buttons are from my vintage stash. red seam binding is from Zipper Stop, and red lace is a vintage goodie as well.

my dad and I used to have a game when we would use this saying. we would add all kinds of fun toppings to our sundaes after the cherries: sprinkles, strawberries, nuts - you name it! I smile every time I hear or see this to remember those fun memories! :) thanks, Paulette, for creating this sentiment for all of us to use! :)
