Cherries - I

Morning all.

Question - Have you ever been strolling through your local crafting paradise and stumbled across something that inspired you then and there?? That is how today's cards started. My local craft haunt is Alice in Paperland. I am always there for MUCH longer than I plan and Alice is such a sweetheart. I was there recently with one of my netball gals helping her sort and suss some things for her daughter (Miss 10). Whilst there, I found the SWEETEST cherry paper by Doodlebug. This is it close up.....

 
I immediately thought of the wee cherry stamp I had at home and the mojo flowed from there. I made 3 cards, picking up the colours from the paper. These are the cards....
 
With a red base....
 
 
..a pink base....

 
And one in landscape.......
 
 
As you can see, I need to work a bit on my "bannering"!! However, I was very happy with the way that they turned out. I think they are perfect for a little girl's birthday. As my next post will show....turns out, I was right!! En masse, they look pretty good...

What gorgeous paper! Love what you created with it too - agree, these will be perfect girlie cards. Loving how comfortable you're becoming with pinks these days - chuckle.

Can't say I get inspiration then and there because I don't actually have a local 'paradise' unfortunately. Most of mine is online ordering.
