Chocolate Vanilla Cherries with Espresso

I think Cherry Cobbler is my favorite new color.  It's just so rich, and really does make me want some Bing cherries.  I had this idea late last night, and when I transferred thought to paper, it came out better than I imagined.  I love it when that happens!

Musical_friend I stamped "Elements of Style" on the designer paper ("Newsprint") using markers to color the stamp.  I sponged and then spritzed with the color spritzer.  I love these colors together!  It makes me think of cherry cobbler with vanilla ice cream and a latte on the side.  Are you hungry yet?

Here are the supplies:
Stamp sets:  Oval All, Elements of Style
Ink:  Stampin' Write Markers – Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Always Artichoke, Daffodil Delight; Classic Stampin' Pads – Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler card stock; Newsprint designer series paper
Other:  Punches – scallop oval, 1 3/4" scallop circle, 2 3/8" scallop circle; Crop-a-dile, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon, stampin' dimensionals, jumbo brads

Mike and I have been throwing ideas around for new voices for a GPS.  Ours – "Mandy" – has a lovely British accent, but she's a little naggy.  So Mike started a post of Facebook with new voices – like Mr. T:  "I pity the fool who doesn't turn right."  Or Paula Deen, "Hey, y'all…We're fixin' to turn right up here at the grocery store."  Well, that doesn't have anything to do with today's card at all, except that my UPS driver found my house early today.  His GPS must say something like, "Pull over at the wacky stamping lady's house, tiptoe onto the front porch and set the boxes down quietly."  Wesley just took something to the mailbox and found my catalogs on the front porch.  I've been in the stamp room, and I guess the driver decided not to ring the bell.  Interesting.  Of course, the boxes say, "Idea Book & Catalog," and the last time "Mr. Brown" brought a package that said that, he almost got tackled in the yard.  I just don't think he understands.  The driver we had when I first started with Stampin' Up! was great.  He totally "got it."  One day we were heading out somewhere and he was several streets over.  He actually flagged us down to see if I wanted my package right then.  The new guy just gets this wide-eyed, hunted look when he sees me, like he thinks I'm stalking him.  (Well, maybe I am a little.)  I'm thinking another year or two and we'll get him broken in.  Or he'll take a long, recuperative vacation to get rid of the eye twitch he has developed.

    What a hoot you are! I can just see you chasing your UPS guy, and him screaming insanely as he charges through the yard! I do believe that part of every UPS person’s training includes at least 3 days of “SU Demonstrator avoidance and control” training. Love this card — have the small music wheel on my next order so I can create something similar. Yum, Cherry Cobbler. Ha!
