LIFE'S A BOWL OF CHERRIES

well, sometimes anyway, lol!!! I wanted to share this really cute digital image I recently won from Paper Popsicles! I entered their sketch contest and my card won, whoohooo!! So, I was able to win three free digistamps which I am enjoying playing with! If you want to check out their fabulous site and my winning card, go here - they have a fabulous store full of yummy goodies! This bowl of cherries is just one of the ones I picked, it just reminds me of summer. I paired it with some dsp from BG called Marakech - love this fabulous paper! The sentiment is one I just inked myself, I am using this as a notecard that I am sending out to a friend. I thought my star punches would make the perfect sentiment piece to match my bowl - heehee!! I really enjoyed having some stamping time last night and plan to have a whole afternoon today catching up on some of the challenges and putting the finishing touches on my first layout for Scrap and Stamp Saturday which starts this Saturday, June 6th!!! We have a fabulous sponsor who we will be announcing soon - I promise you will be THRILLED, the prize package is AMAZING!!!!

Hi Alex! This really is a summery image, you're card looks great! I have a cherry tree in the garden but the cherries are just starting to rippen! I'm hoping to get a few before the birds eat them all :) It's great to be part of the Stamp Something team, looking forward to it!
