Penny Black~Red, White and Blue and Sweet Sunday Sketch


Okay...if you read this blog much during the summer, you all know I am in the middle of cherry harvest here in the Northwest United States...so only natural that I would pick a good cherry stamp to color up for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge #108 of Red, White and Blue. I am hoarding this Stampin' Up cherry paper and will be so sad when I use the last of if. Darn, I wish I had bought more of it!

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #76 for my layout. The image is mounted on dimensionals, but hard to see in this picture. Very simple and clean!

Sorry to make this short and sweet, but I am off to stamp...stampin' time is pretty hard to come by these days! Enjoy!

Your coloring is spectacular Sue! This is so gorgeous. I had to laugh when I saw the image because I knew you were up to your eyeballs with the cherry harvest and I thought to myself that cherries would be the last thing I'd want to see if I were you. LOL Super cute card! Best, Curt

Sweet image to go with your Cherry theme. Love the paper too. My Mom used to freeze cherries from a tree in our yard (sour) and make the best pies with them in the winter.....unfortunately none of us girls got that pie making gene, so sad! Wonderful card, so birght and cheery.

Hugs
Sue

Cute, very cute! I luv this image, too. ...i gave up on Red, white & Blue, cuz i made many cards, with those colors in a last couple of weeks time (lol!, as you probably noticed!), so, i'm taking a break from those color combination for a while! LOL
