Okay now for the card we have the lovely Cindy who I am  a big fan off,she makes the most amazing cards and is a whizz with ribbon,and did us great sketch.  the theme this week is anything family orientated,family birthday,etc,anniversary,I put a family sentiment onto my card,using once again Hannah,picking apples. Love these stamps.

The other picture just shows,my tag above,and some other Grunge pieces,I am playing with, the wee necklace you can see is what Dear Cindy sent me,if you ever want inspiration or just to visit she really is so talented,and a wonderful person,too so if you want to take a look the link is HERE. Thanks sweetie.

Hi there, what a great creative space you have and those shelves/filing trays are a fantastic purchase. Love your art too, you have been so busy. Have a good evening, Tracy Evans x

Tracy Evans said...

Hi Cheryl, I'm back again. You asked on my blog if you could use Modge Podge instead of Gesso. Gesso is actually a primer which I use to prime boxes or my journal pages but I also used it to rub over my box to go into the crackle. Hope this helps. Tracy Evans x

Cheryl, your CCC tag is awesome! You did the chipped enamel technique perfectly, and it's totally fine that you used a small piece of metal for the challenge. You created a really gorgeous work of art here-- I love the stamping and the fragment and all the cool little details!

Your sketch-based card is darling, too!

My name is Toni said...

Gorgeous card Cheryl! I always love looking at your work. You are very talented.

Carola Bartz said...

The tag is so beautiful. These are my colors, but the entire composition is fabulous.

coldwaters2 said...

Hi Cheryl wow your card and that tag are both gorgeous I am so loving the Autumnal colours that are appearing now they really appeal to me as I do prefer the darker colour schemes. I love the sparkle on the little girls bow and those flowers are lush. I have my eye on that fabby wicker basket thingy on your craft desk it looks great. I have stopped applying for DT positions as I think people will think I am being to greedy lol.
Hugs

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I have to admit, I never "got" those markers before. After looking at yours, I see all the shading and subtle color changes. Wow, you know how to color. And that basket thingy is lovely, too. What a great price. Even I don't need a $$ converter to know it's a steal. Happy WOYWW.

I came over here with a link from WOYWW and find I can comment on your lovely card too!

So firstly the card, love the image, and the patience you have had with all those apples and the glaze. Love your colour scheme too.

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers.

Now to your desk. Love your office 'desk thing' so much more attractive than plastic. Very in keeping with a crafter. What a tidy space you have there.

Love your tag too. I am so not creative in that direction, I try but it's not in me to be so free thinking.
