Ohhh yeah bring on Christmas........
















Can't believe how
close Christmas is...but it sure is fun getting ready for it!  The glitters, the bows, all that shimmers and glimmers.....I never tire of it.   I know I said I wouldn't be back till my Vintage Street Market post but ummm had to share some new creations.   More of my fave grey....yes it is my new fave...this time paired with red....instead of pink.  Simply heaven.  Another fun color duo of reds and creams..which I never tire of.  All kinds of toppings....tea stained ribbons, glittery goodies, paper diecuts...all looking sweeter with a soft topping of glitter.  Which by the way I have had some of you ask how I do the glitter.  I use a good spray adhesive, mine is 3m from Walmart.  I lightly spray my card or item and than top it off with a sprinkle of glitter from the container.  Just gives it a nice snowy effect.  It seems to dry quite well...might remain a bit tacky but worth the extra effort I think.  When I want to do small detail effects I use Tim Holtz distress glitters that come in the small tubes.  My last project you see is close to my heart.....I collect those old vintage frames through the year and than spray them up with paint.  Love to do shadowbox altered art with them.   I did quite a few of them a few years back and than like so many of us do went on to other things.  So glad I took the time to try it again.  I love how this one came out.  I fnally broke into my harlequin ribbon I have been hoarding.  Again I had to sprinkle it all with glitter...good gried will I tire of it?   I don't know ...Valentines is around the corner rofl.   Well hope you enjoy.....and getting ready for the holidays.  We get our tree tomorrow!  hugs to you and night night, cherry

Thanks for the response about the sprinkles. I was hoping you had found something that completely dried with no stickiness. I'll try the 3M. Beautiful cards!

speechless and completely going back to review your incredible cards cherry! You always inspire and what I love most is that I look at a card and think I took it all in and then look again and realize I missed something. So many details on your pieces! Just amazing! Holiday hugs! :-) Amy

Hey Cherry, so beautiful and I too love the red and cream. Love the sparkle, glitter, snow, all of it just lights up the Hoiday feeling inside your soul. I agree with everyone, your cards are incredible and beautiful.
