Cherry Love

Here we are at another lovely Friday and it's a Free For All Friday at Flourishes.  You'll see some great things from the girls;  a Featured Tutorial from Barbara on the FLLC Blog, some Christmas Spirit Challenge cards....and some Free for All!

July 2nd is our 17th Anniversary!  I can hardly believe how quickly the years have gone :)  I am incredibly blessed to be married to this man.  He is such a great man, and he loves me well, and I am so grateful to be able to love him back and build our life together.  I am very happily married.  :)

So, I created an Anniversary card for him, we're going on a date tonight and part of tomorrow because the kids are staying at my parents.  Woo Hoo!


I used the very gorgeous Cherries and Peaches set from Flourishes.  We planted a cherry tree in our backyard that we love ...from it's blossoms in the spring to being able to have cherry pie in the summer and fall.  It really is doing well this year, so I hope for LOTS of cherries!  The sketch is this weeks Mojo Circle/Square sketch.  I've colored up the cherries with Copics, and used the gorgeous paper in the Yacht Club Kit from Webster's.  Then I added some lovely silk ribbon in a fancy bow with tails and some pretty accents in the swirly rhinestones and Webster's accent.  


I cut out the shapes with my Grand Calibur and the Grand Scalloped Circles Die, Grand Circles Die and Labels One, plus the Ribbon Banners.  

So now you can head on over to see a variety of loveliness from the rest of the team.

Stamps:  Flourishes Cherries and Peaches, Wedded Bliss;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black;  Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Flourishes Classic Ivory, Webster's Pages - Yacht Club;  Accessories:  Grand Calibur, Grand Scalloped Circles Die, Grand Circles Die, Labels One Nestabilities, Ribbon Banners Shapeabilities, Silk Ribbon, Bow Easy, Zva Rhinestones, Websters Flowers, Copic Markers, Dimensionals.
