Be Inspired.

Good morning all, I do hope all is well and everyone is having a wonderful fall day. Like so many I have been sick, so that has given me time to do some cruisin around the blog a world. And her are two sites you may like to visit.
Terry at Antique Attic has some wonderful home decorating ideas, like this lovely porch, now who wouldn't love to sit on this porch and day dream about there next card are layout to design.

Like this card that Purtty Paperz designed. 
If you are in the need of some great card inspiration, be sure to check out her amazing blog. You so will be inspired to make some cards. Now that I have been inspired I need to go spruce up my front porch and go make some cards. I wish you all a very blessed day..~~~Cherrie~~~

Sugar Pie Farmhouse Blog, What a Find

Good morning all, I do hope everyone is having a blessed day. Wow, I have to say getting to your blogs I am seeing some amazing cards and layouts. I still have a few blogs to get to but I will be visiting you soon. It is so nice to have a break from the Texas heat. My house shows the affects of being away for the summer. So I will be taken a break from scrappin for a bit.

I wanted to share with you all an amazing blog I found called Sugar Pie Farmhouse. I know it has nothing to do with scrapbooking, but we all have homes and she has some wonderful things to share. I am so in love with her pantry. My tiny pantry is getting a needed facelift thanks to some wonderful ideas from her blog.

Well hope you all have happy scrapping or fall decorating day. ~~~Cherrie~~~

Family Fun

Ok I know I should be making the album covers, but when I got this wonderful Webster's paper kit in the mail from Alda with the Flying Unicorn. I just had to stop and put this layout together. I just loved those dog on the paper. So I just cut them out along with one of the many frames. Made the flowers with my slice. Familly Fun was from my stash. Once again thank you so much Alda for this kit. Well now I better go get those album covers made. Thanks for stoping by.....~Cherrie~

Mothers Day Card

Hi all,  this is the card I made my mother in law. She loves blue, so I just went to my left over paper stash and pulled out some papers. Have to say this card made itself, for as I layed down the papers they were the perfect size and I liked the way they looked. I wish all my cards would come together this easy......~Cherrie~

Passing Of A Sweet Friend

My sweet friend Shirley passed away today. This was the last thing I had made for her. I had post the layout here not that long ago. She loved frogs and this was the first thing that I did not put a frog on. Now she has her wings, and I am sure she is dancing with the angels. You will be truly missed my sweet friend........~Cherrie~

Garden Time


Ok, I am trying my hand at a garden this year. You may want to pray for my poor plants for I do not have a green thump. I did see broccoli popping there little heads out of the ground, and peas are showing up too, but my carrots are M I A. My one poor cucumber is trying to tell me something, I think it wants more water or maybe less water or maybe more sun? Oh I dont know but it needs some c p r to save its poor life. LOL.
One thing for sure is I can grow a mean crop of weeds without water, good soil are trying. Darn weeds why couldn't you be a vegetable......
Thanks to my dad for making  me these boxes ao I could have a small garden. Now I just need a few more of them. I so can hear the poor plants saying, NO NO NO NO......
