TART AND TANGY ATC

Hey everyone!!! I am soooo very excited because today was registration for CONVENTION - WHOOHOO!!! I got up at 4am, sat down, and got myself all registered and on Track 1! Anyone else going, I would love to know!!! Can I say it again - WHOOHOO!! It will be so much fun! I went to Leadership in February and it was a total blast so I am really looking forward to Convention - it IS the 20th anniversary of Stampin' Up! so you KNOW it is going to be FABULOUS!!!! Okay, so now on to the real reason you stopped by - LOL! These are ATCs I made for a recent swap I am in, and so I decided Tart and Tangy was the way to go! I just love this set! And, I used One Smart Cookie for the sentiment, these two sets were MEANT to be together! Didn't they come out cute?? Okay, I know I am not supposed to say that, but I really am pleased with how they turned out! And yes, I stitched every single one of them - lol! Here is the recipe!
Card recipe -
Paper - Tempting Turquoise card stock, Old Olive card stock, Naturals White card stock, Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper
Stamp Sets - Tart and Tangy, One Smart Cookie

sorry about the delete, missed a few words and it didn't make sense, lol. I love these. They turned out great. I love how you backed the cherries in a scallop mat. Very cute. I also like the dots around the oval mat, great touch.

Yes, they ARE adorable!!! I had the pleasure of making something with this set at a little make and take and we made the cherries to be "scratch and sniff". That sets is fantastic.
