Life is just a bowl of cherries.



This card has been hidden away, thought I would bring it out for an airing!
the image is Penny Black
the swirls and tab are done on the cricut using wild card, and the papers I have just cut round to do a thingy with!!!! (its Late and I have man flu even though I'm a woman I'm trying to get out of cleaning our Bearded Dragons cage out!
no seriously I do feel really grot.) I can't remember what they are maybe someone out there will let me know.
if you look closely at the tab on the side you can see stitch marks this is off wild card and I love it.
The cherries I have done 3 time with glossy accents its built them right up.
Also just to let you know that a Dear Friend of mine Jo has just started a new blog it is called MANGO PANCAKES
and believe me she is good keep your eye on what she's up to because her work is very original.

Beautiful card, Chris! Those cherries look so real! Hope you feel better soon. I cleaned out the giant African land snails today. good thing is they don't run away very quickly! I leave them in the sink under a running tap and they are happy for at least half an hour!

Hope Jacare said...

Chris - do hope you are feeling a bit better....man flu indeed - it must be bad! Wonderful card - yummy cherries - I can taste them in my mouth.....Cheers Claire x

pinky said...

Chris those cherries looks so real I can practically taste them lol. Gorgeous card, can't help you with the papers though, my head is not made for holding information, just somewhere to put my hair lol. The technique I used on my card was something i saw in the Magnolia mag and just had a stab at it, theirs is much better lol but its easy enough, just cut circles away from your paper to fit you image under and tear and roll the paper back. Hope the man in you feels better soon lol.
