House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #98-Here Comes Summer!

 Yes, Here we are at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #98-Here Comes Summer!  Use a summer themed stamp for this hot challenge!

Well, hot for some of us, but here in the Northwest USA, it is still cold and our poor cherries are still ripening on the tree...almost 3-4 weeks late  OH MY! I work at a cherry food processing plant that makes cherries for things like yogurt  and ice cream (think Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia-that's the cherries we are waiting for!)  We are impatiently waiting for the sun to ripen these babies! Harvest will begin maybe in a week or so I hope!

I bought these fun foamy soaps named Fresh Picked Cherries and added a tag to each one to give to my  co-workers...a little Harvest treat!

I am laughing at this card...I really stuffed the cherries on this creation...a cherry image, cherry ribbon and a cherry charm, cherry DP and I used a cherry impressability  on the white background cardstock! Now, if we could just get some REAL cherries going....

The House Mouse Team have created some great summery cards, so I hope you can pop over to House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and check them out! Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Downloads, one random crafter will win 3 digi's!

****Welcome to my new followers Martha from Martha's Favorites  and Cely at Creating In Carolina.

Gorgeous work Sue! LOVE what you did with the cherry theme. I don't think the cherries are overdone at all. As a matter of fact, it was like a fun game of "find all the cherries". LOL Super cute. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
