Shimmery Cherry Cobbler


I'm really enjoying the "Strength & Hope" set.  This week, Winchester is celebrating the "Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival," so I need strength!  One of the organizations I belong to sponsors a big luncheon every year, and I'm on one of the committees.  I offered to donate a door prize, pick up some of the other door prizes, and stamp thank you cards for all the prizes we were given (about 80 – 100).  I think I'm down to picking up two more prizes, finishing my donation and creating 15 more cards.  Whew!!  After this weekend, I'll get a chance to do some serious stamping, I think.  (That's where the stamp set comes in!!  Strength to get through this week and Hope that next week is a little calmer!)


This is another card I made with Sandy & liz.  I inked the flourish with markers, used sponge daubers to ink the butterfly, then covered it with Moonlight Smooch paint after I had stamped it.  I used some of the new "Paisley Petals" designer paper for the border.  (Hurry!!!  You only have a few more days to take advantage of the "Spring Is Blossoming" sneak peek that includes this paper.  See details here.)

The fun thing about this set – besides the fact that $2.00 from the sale of each set goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation – is it can be used for anything.  It would make a nice Thinking of You, Birthday, Anniversary, Wedding…it's very "all occasion!"

Thanks for stopping in!  I'm buzzing off to a rehearsal, then to take some pictures and pick up door prizes.  Have a wonderful day!
