From Courtney's Closet Challenge Anniversary Edition


From Courtney's Closet #42-An Anniversary Celebration!

I made this cherry card inspired by Courtney's 4 month old picture where she is wearing a cute little girlie cherry decorated outfit. This was the outfit that inspired me to join in on Libby's challenge! It has been almost exactly one year ago today that I joined my first online challenge...and I chose little Courtney as my inspiration. You can view my first ever From Courtney's Closet Challenge card HERE.

This time I chose to use more intense colors, but I did stick with the cherry theme! This is my 39th FCCC out of 42! Do you think I am addicted? I have truly enjoyed watching little Cupcake grow up! This challenged has kept me stamping and learning. And Libby...what can I say...she has become a good blogger friend to me!

Sometimes I tend to get carried away with detailed cards...but my true love is clean and simple cards. For those of you new to my blog...I work with cherries 12 months out of the year! I work at a large cherry processing plant that makes everything from maraschinos to marketing those delicious fresh cherries due to ripen on the trees this month! By the end of June I should be in the thick of what I hope is a large and successful cherry harvest!

This card will go to a very dear friend who also works with cherries. You think I would be sick of those darn things...but truly nothing better than a fresh cherry!

Here's hoping you all find the time to come join Courtney's challenge soon!

Cute card and wonderful sentiment on the stamp! I am loving all the cherries on your site - they seem to make things so cheery (no pun intended!) I've been to busy to blog much (what's new?) but wanted to stop by for a quick hello!

Oh my -- I didn't know what you did at your job-- Very NEAT -- I could eat a jar of marichinos every day. No kidding. Send me a case or two!!! This is like the third cherry card I have seen while surfing this morning and I just bought some cute cherry bling-- so I think I'm gonna follow suite and make a cherry card!!! Love your card and the clean design.
