Hello Sweet Friends....

I have been having a lot of fun lately using my assortment of impression plates. They really seem to make cards pop don't they? Today I decided to use my Large Paisley impression plate from Sissix. This plate really gives a very defined impression.

So, as I am tried to decide what stamp I want to use I am looking around thinking how can I find a thing in this war zone. I mean really my office is soooo bad. No really, I am serious, I even took a picture and as embarrassing as it is to show you I thought it might motivate me to clean it up!

In the mess I found a corduroy button that I took a red lipstick Copic to about a week ago and then set it aside. I got to thinking..... this might look really cute as a cherry. I found my Large Cherry stamp from DeNami and the button fit in the cherry almost perfectly! Isn't it funny how create thoughts take shape? I know the cherry ribbon was going a bit overboard on the cherry theme but I have had it in my ribbon stash for so long that I just had to use it.

Anyway, I hope you like my card today. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I better go and clean up my space now.

Have a blessed day!

Laurie :)

  1. Such a cute card!
    I love how the ribbon matches the cherry image! So cute! And by the way... your desk looks like mine! haha...

  2. Great idea to use the corduroy button on the cherry card... love the matching ribbon too!
    Oh My, no reason to worry about your messy desk... I think that is normal with most crafters. My mess usually takes up part of the floor too! Just shows you are being productive & using your goodies!

  3. So beautiful!

    Jealous of your scrapspace. My stuff is strewn all over the house (much to DH's dismay). It's because my DD took over my office and reclaimed it as her bedroom. Oh well. We'll keep her. :)


Thank you for stopping by and leaving me comment it means so much to me. :)
