A Bowl Of Cherries

Happy Monday! We are back to school and back to work today after a long weekend camping trip. It started with a blown trailer tire on the freeway in the first 30 minutes, ugh!! Luckily that was the worst of it and we had a great time camping right on the beach. It was a bit cold but that didn't stop my kids from swimming and boogie boarding in the ocean. I watched from the sand, wrapped up in a sweatshirt!

I've been playing with my new Unity stamps and here is another card. I just love this bowl of cherries and the fun sentiment to go with it.


I used some watercolor pencils to color the cherries red. And added some fun embellies the squares that didn't have stamping.


I was lucky enough to win the Blog Friday with Friends giveaway over at the Unity Blog last week and they sent me a BAGFUL of stamps as a prize!! I swear, there are at least 25 stamps in this bag. I cannot wait to start using them, there are some fun ones in the bag. Now all I need is another spring break where I can just sit and stamp. Anybody know where I can find one of those??

I am really behind on blog commenting and I hope to visit all your blogs this week to find out what you have been up to! Thanks for stopping by today...

I'm shivering just thinking of sitting at the ocean (never minde swimming in it!!) sounds like a fun weekend though - we used to camp every summer in Maine growing up - we had a tent trailer right on a lake where we'd stay all summer and poor dad would commute to on weekends accept for his 3 weeks vacation!

Love this fun card Mara - each square has a great design in it!
