I love cherry pie.

I have this friend. Her name is Maggie, and she can do everything. I'm not joking. Every year on my birthday, she makes me a cherry pie, from scratch. And when I say "from scratch", I mean she actually picks the cherries herself, preserves her own pie filling, and of course, makes the crust herself. I wouldn't be surprised if she makes everything from memory and doesn't measure anything. She's just that good. The best part? She acts like it's no big deal. Here is my thank-you card for this year's pie (I was so excited to get WMS "Blessed By You" so I could use that pie stamp!):
...and cherry pie for breakfast is the best thing ever!
Paper: PTI White, Pure Poppy
Ink: SU Creamy Caramel, Mellow Moss, Real Red marker
Stamps: WMS Blessed by You, PTI Everyday Button Bits, Everyday Classics
Other: Nesties Labels #1, PTI Pure Poppy Satin ribbon, buttons, dimensional tape

  6. LOL! This is excellent Cheryl!! I love it, I love how you coloured the wee pie holes with cherry filling!!! YUM!

  7. This card is super cute! I think your great friend (wow! I need to find one like her around will appreciate it too. So cute! Have you joined the WMS fan club now after playing with your stamps?

  8. Cheryl this is so cute! Your little pies look good enough to eat!

  9. OMG Cheryl. I love cherry pie too, but this card takes the cake! It's AWESOME. I'm thinking I can recreate it using the pie stamp from PTI's My Punny Valentine. I need to make friends with YOUR friend...yum.

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:

It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.

Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
