Mmmm Cherries

While my youngest daughter was at university and had long summer breaks she got a job at a local cherry farm. I may be biased but Somerset cherries are the best cherries ever and those from Whitehouse Farm are the best of the best! That leads me into my card for this post, my entry for the Imagine That Design of the Month Challenge with July’s image featuring lots of cherries.

Materials used:SAM_1816(watermarked)
Imagine That Digi of the Month – Treat Stand
Bugaboo Stamps – Make It Snappy Blank
White blending card
Copic pens
designer papers Papermania – Happy Days
A5 white card blank

I made the blank frame the size I wanted and added the cake stand and sentiment to it. Having printed it out I used the copics to colour it in. I drew in the tablecloth with a black pen. The frame border I coloured in to match, as closely as a could, the backgroundSAM_1817(watermarked) colour of the cherry designer paper. I cut out my image and matted and layered it onto the designer papers before attaching it to my card blank.

I used a coloured image from the set to make the paper for the card insert.

After a day of non-stop rain yesterday I am happy to say that today there is blue in the sky and the sun has made an appearance. Hopefully summer has returned to stay a while.

Thanks for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
