Tart and Tangy Cherries

Thank you to “Stamp Like Crazy” for this cute idea using your 1/2″ circle punch for the cherries. I changed a couple of things from her card and made it my own. I added the Real Red 5/8″ ribbon, sponged the white (around the cherries) and used the words “thank you” from Enjoy Every Moment. This was  a fast and very easy card. Great if you have to make up several at one time.

Ok so I’m really new at this blog stuff. So I hope you all will be kind to me. I truly am trying to get this blogging stuff. Thanks to my stampin’ friend Lynne, she has been helping me out. So I am going to master this computer stuff, even if it kills me. I told myself that this was the year for me to get computer savy. So, now I have a demonstrator website, a blog, and I’m going to learn how to do digital scrapbooking. On top of all that, my DH bought me a new Apple computer for Christmas last year and I am still relearning what little I knew on my Dell computer. So again, be gentle with me while viewing my blog and my website.

Carousel Notes Purse

Check out this cute purse made with our Carousel Notes and Afternoon Tea Designer Papers. You can get these from our Occasions Mini Catalog. Wish I could say that I thought this up myself, but no can do. Many thanks to Jan Tinklenberg (original designer) and Patty Bennett. With the help of their tutorials and my stampin’ friend Lynne Marini and I were able to duplicate. When you open the purse you can add photos. This would be a great Mother’s Day gift. You can view my calendar on my Stampin’ Up! website at cincraft.stampinup.com for info on the class I’m holding in April.
