Easter Wishes

                        Hello!  I have a post up at RRR sharing this sweet Easter plaque.  I started with a sturdy chipboard scroll base that I covered in polka dot papers, sanded the edges , and inked them a bit.  I added tinsel and silver metallic grosgrain around the canvas image.  I also added some homemade paper fringe and a big fluffy flower.  I wanted to add some more character so I added more silver grosgrain along with seam bindings in bay leaf and baby pink along with a sweet metal rimmed tag , a vintage button, and some sweetheart blossoms in pink.  Love the vintage feel the silver grosgrain adds to this little project!  Enjoy, cherry

New challenge at RRR

                 Happy Friday and Happy first official day of Spring!  We have a new fun challenge over at RRR.  It is a bright Spring colors and ribbon challenge.   I made a simple little mini card and envelope ensemble.  Trying some CAS out but not very good at it!  I used faux burlap in white along with May arts denim ribbon on my first card.   On my second card I used seam bindings in rose petal and baby pink along with some velvet.  Two fun but diffrent takes on the challenge.  Hope Spring is poppin its head in where ever you are!  Enjoy and make sure to check out everyone's take on the challenge and please join us!!!!   Cherry

Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop

                         Happy blog hop day!  You should have found your way here from Kathy's blog.  If at anytime you find yourself lost ....start back at the RRR blog.   This month's candy confection of  club ribbons remind me of bright Easter candies or eggs!  I used three of the Ribbons to decorate my cute little card!  I stayed in the aquas and whites.  Full of happy Spring tidings!  I didn't use a lot of paper and let my little pinwheel and ribbons stand front and center!  I added a little detail by embossing the background before adhering my doily.  Added a simple sentiment and mini pom pom and was done!  Your next stop is back at the RRR blog.   Have fun ya'll!  Cherry

Clouds of blue....

                   Can you have so much happy?  To much sweetness?  I think not.  These sweet little glimpses into another time and place always make me happy.  So does knowing Spring is almost here.  These projects were made for the RRR Blog.
                    My first little project are a couple of sweet mini glassine bags decked out with Pretty Little Studio images and bingo cards, and layered with diecut hearts, mini clothepins, and vintage buttons.  I used moss green seam binding for my bows. My other project is an oversize tag that I layered with pattern papers from Ocotber Afternoon and Making Memories.  I used a big chunky glitter rose, stick pin with the sweetest rhinestone bow and topped the project with both silver and lace blue seam bindings and attached satin swiss dot ribbon in blue topaz to the top.    These projects remind me of Green Spring grass and clear blue skies.  Things sure to come soon!   Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!  Cherry

                 Well....I think I got St Patrick's day out of my system.   All that gorgeous green brightens the spirits this time of year.   Lots of oldies but goodies here.  Old October Afternoon scraps, some paper from Hobby Lobby (yesss we finally have one, Yippee) ,  old images, a little stamping, some roses from my bin, some sweet heart blossoms from RRR,  mixes of very old lace , vintage tulle, and moss green seam bindings from RRR.   I used some of my last bingo cards from Vintage Street Market.  Wish they were still around :(.    Is Spring comin around your neck of town?   It is sunny here but very very cold.  Our family is trying to get over some sickness that seems to hang on with all its might.   Wish us luck!  Thanks for visiting, Cherry
