The Cherry on Top

It’s almost the weekend! We have some gorgeous weather today and I think it should be nice for at least Saturday. I’m so happy to have the windows open & fresh air coming in.

I just discovered another digi stamp company with some really cute images — Tiffany Doodles. She has some great images & sets in her store — I so need to get the chocolate kiss set. Tiffany is currently searching for a design team and I’m throwing my name in the ring for a spot.

I grabbed the freebie from last week, a great little cherry bunch, and went to work. By the way, Thursday is freebie day and she has a beautiful butterfly up for grabs today.

Now, I will admit to not being a cherry fan. However, I recently discovered wild cherry flavored diet Pepsi and LOVE it. It just isn’t very easy to find, which is annoying! Anyway, when I saw this image, I immediately thought of putting together a gift basket, which led me to the basket template Gina K shared recently. I knew I had this DCWV cherry paper in my stash, so it worked out really nicely. This little basket is filled with lots of cherry sugary-ness. Cherry Sours (my daughter likes these, much to my surprise), gummi Lifesavers, Twizzler cherry bites, cherry Tic Tacs and a wild cherry Pepsi (didn’t have any diet). I had so many artificially flavored cherry things in my room, it still smelled like it today!

The basket comes together so easily. This was my trial run as I am going to make these for the teachers at the kids’ school as end of the year gifts. I filled little pillow boxes with the candies and topped them off with ribbon and a cherry tag.

The MOJO Monday sketch for this week was my inspiration for the card. I don’t have the Top Note die, so I used my Labels 1 Nesties to cut the lower piece. Rarely do I use my kraft paper, but I love the pop of the red & white with the kraft. Both the red & white are embossed with Swiss Dots, topped with a piece of polka dotted red grosgrain and finished off with black twin and a big red button. I typed in the sentiment while in PSP before printing off my image. Finally, I added Glossy Accents to my cherries (and unfortunately ended up with some bubbles due to impatience!).
