Carolina Girl (Cely)
Lordy Lordy I think I may be getting the flu so I will try to get this card posted.

The House Mouse Challenge #188 theme (Friends) is being sponsored by the lovely lady Sues Stamping Stuff. She does an awesome job with the House Mice! My first rubber stamp was a House Mouse.  I still love the sweet critters.  This one is called (I think) '07 Fruit Fun. Bought at HB years ago. I tried to keep it CAS but added a fun cherry spinner.

Flashback:  I remember my friend Carola and I buying cherries, pitting and making jam.  It was a lot of work, a lot of fun and we never did it again.  The next best thing we did was to buy maraschino cherries, soaked over night in chocolate volka and ....yum yum!

A2, ribbon, copics for coloring, white highlights, metal cherry charm.

    Wow, you are really on a roll.... Love your spinner card and those darling mice!


  4. I love how you kept repeating the cherry theme on this card. Those mice are adorable, and you sure have some mad coloring skills!

    My husband got a cherry pitting gizmo for his birthday once. It looked really cheap, but certainly did the trick! You put the cherry inside and pull the "trigger" and wham! Pitted cherry! It's small, about two inches in size. If you ever make your cherry jam again, you should look for it!
