With a cherry on top...


Hello! I couldn't help myself, and I ordered the cherry die cut and stamp set from Papertrey Ink. Nothing says summer like fruit, eh?! :)

I made this card with the Fruity Fun challenge from The Paper Variety in mind. And... if you saw Sketchy Thursdays on Saturday, Heidi posted some fabulous inspiration for the monthly GDT challenge that was also fruity. Here comes summer!


I also made a set of 5 blank note cards. I really just wanted to play with the cherry die and cut some felt and fabric. It worked really well, so I can see myself making these quite often. Such a great gift, don't you think?



Hopefully you're now in the summer spirit—I know I am. If you are, scoot on over to Sketchy Thursdays and play along for the GDT challenge.

Thanks for reading my blog today, and thanks to everyone for the nice comments yesterday about getting pubbed in CARDS. I really appreciate the feedback on my card. Have a great day!
