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

Color Combos

Happy Monday!  It was beautiful today.....blue sky...just what I needed..especially on a Monday.  NO ice thank Goodness.  I hate driving in the snow and ice...and if I don't have to I wont.  I thought I would drop by to share a few things...I have been playing around with non traditional color schemes for Christmas.   I have done quite a few things this year adding black...it really pops against my favorite color red and adds a touch of sophistication...and I am just diggin it.  I am sure it will pop up again before the season is over.  The other one I tried was pink (which I know many of you adore) and grey.  I am generally not a big grey person ...but again I am really diggin the combination of it with pink.  It was a natural for these Crafty Secret images I used.  I heard they are going all digital...say it ain't so! Boo! Anyways...hope you enjoy!  I will be back to share a Vintage Street Market project with you all in  a few days!  Night night all, cherry

          That is what I am...OHHH Thanksgiving...and the leftovers....and the leftovers...and did I mention the leftovers?   Good ole stuffing...and fruit salad...and the jeans just get tighter and tighter.  So how was your thanksgiving?  Anyone go out for the sales?   We are snug like bugs in our home....it has been cold and icy...and we are staying put.   I saw the news and it scared me....people going crazy for the deals....acting like wild animals.   That is not for me.   I will stay put.   Anyways..a few goodies to share....tags, a card, and a christmas plaque.  Wanted to share I am having a little holiday sale in my etsy store through the weekend....Cherry's Jubilee store if you cae to take a peek.   Hope you enjoy!  night, night, cherry

Happy Thanksgiving....

I just wanted to pop in with a Happy thanksgiving and many blessings to you all!  I thought I would share this "memory keeper" album I have been working on.  I started with Tattered Angels chipboard that I inked and sanded...and than started adding bits and bobs too.  Papers from Graphic 45 and Canvas Corps...and others I forget.  I added some of my polka dot recipe cards that I stitched up so they would be perfect for tucking in notes and memories of this Christmas to come or from years gone by.  Several kraft envelopes from Maya Road embellished with tinsels, poinsettias and more.  I had a lot of fun embellishing this....and know there will be more of these in my future.    Hope you enjoy!  night night,c herry

It's snowing....

It's snowing....and the fire is glowing...and I am making cards....cards, cards, and more cards.  I can't help myself.  It is really quite sad....being that I virtually have no family to share these cards with....rofl.   We have a very small family.   O well it is allll good and it keeps me out of trouble and sane.  Sanity is good.   This weather kinda gets to me....I love sunshine..so I try to create it indoors with my paper and embellies. So please beware that I will be sharing quite a bit with you.  You really gotta like cards to visit this joint.   I also wanted to share that I am now officially on the Vintage Street Market  team.   I couldn't me more pleased!  I love their goodies...and the other ladies are full of talent..so I am kinda giddy to be apart of it.  Also I just noticed they are having a holiday sale in their store....you might want to check it out!  Well.......I am off to finish some custom orders for some special customers!  hugs and nighty night. cherry
