Tilda Among Cherries

Hello everyone!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I just love this time of year, all the fresh fruits and veggies that taste so much better now then other times of the year.  When I lived in West Virginia we had about 12 apple trees and a cherry tree that when in season the branches would literally hang clear to the ground because it was loaded with so much fruit!  I miss those trees.....Here is a card that I made for a couple of challenges:  The Pixie Cottage Challenge #25 and Cute Card Thursday  Fruity Challenge, Paper Take Weekly  Challenge - In Stitches, Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Something Sweet.

I loved coloring the cherries on this card.  At first I thought it was going to be a little difficult because they are dark, but once I started it was so much fun coloring them!!

Card Recipe:

Design Papers:  CTMH
stamps:  Jam Tilda can be found at 7 Kids.
Whimsy Doodle Stamps (cherries and pot)
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, cherry buttons are from JoAnns
Liquid Glass (CTMH) on some of the cherries
Diamond Stickles are accenting the flowers.
And of course, I used my sewing machine again!  (seems I love this stitch!)

Copics used to color with.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed today's post.
