Back to school...

                  Just a few whimsical back to school cards tonight.    They take me back to when I was that age.  New grade...new year.   Remember getting new school clothes?  OHH what fun.!  I remember arranging and rearranging them in my closet....wanting so bad to wear them right than and there...but wanting them to stay new.  Getting my school supplies...which back than wasn't the long list they are now.  I was happy with a new pencil box and a scratch and sniff pencil.  Back in the day..back in the day...sigh.   Had fun with these cards....some vintage style images, 50's kids, a terrier, and a kitty cat.  Hey everyone deserves an education!  The last card I think would be neat to give to your librarian or to your teacher with their name on the library check out card.    Too cute.   As always the lovely seambinding is from my etsy pal Patsy over at
http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrairieBirdBoutique    love her colors and the sheen to her wrinkle ribbons.   YUM!  Come back tomorrow I have a little announcement!   Hugs, cherry

Your "cards" are little master pieces of artwork!
I so enjoy seeing your designs.
Do you have the "follower" gadget??
It's nice to have so that I can see when you have a new post! Maybe you do have it..my computer is on dial-up and it takes 4-ever to see things.

I seriously love all of your work! Just today after going to Hobby Lobby & finding some pretties for cards I thought, "I wonder what Cherry would do? Wonder where she gets all those cute frames, hangers, etc)"?? I hope to make something super pretty for the lovely ladies that bless my life. I have so much to be thankful for and you're an inpiration! Thanks for sharing it all!
