Life is like a bowl full of cherries.

Cherries make me think of my grandparents. My Papaw LOVED cherries…fresh cherries (especially Bing cherries), cherry pie, cherry ice cream, and chocolate covered cherries!

Yesterday it was raining, the house was quiet and I was all by myself. I had good intentions, I was going to clean up my messy craft room. I can’t create in a clean space, what was I thinking?! I start picking up and get distracted. Something interesting catches my attention and before I know… Continue reading ♫ I love a rainy night…♫♪

Cardabilites Sketch Reveal #126

I’m branching out a bit and found the cardabilites blog with this fun sketch. It’s simple and I can use my scraps.
