SFYTT-Feb 2011

I made this card for Jen's Monthly Sketch For You To Try challenge. I told myself that I was going to try to do all 12 months of sketch challenges, but I came home tonight with only 3 hours and 11 minutes left to post a card for the month of February...nothing like skidding into the challenge sideways LOL!

I used this wonderful image from Help for Katie: Digital package 1. OH MY there are so many lovely images in this package!

I also decided to play with a fun new toy that was gifted to me by my stamping friend Barb! Thanks Barb!  I used a Spellbinders Impressabilitie that is all cherries. I am not sure if you can tell--but  on the Cherry Cobbler solid paper has a lovely cherry impression!! (You all know Barb and I work at a cherry food processing plant right?) You would think we wouldn't want to see another cherry outside of work...but I do love cherry stamps and cherry accessories!

Well, I better get crackin' and get this posted before the challenge expires...Thanks for popping by!!!
