42,000 Cherries for Shari

42,000 cherries is what Bertie and I are bringing to the tea party today!!! You know what else comes with cherries, Mudder? Yup. Cherry pits. Bertie challenges you, da Mudder, to a cherry pit spittin' contest and anyone else who wants to play! We can pile them all up and use 'em fer flingin' later. Woo-hoo! Come one, come all. We're meetin' up by the back door under the cherry tree.

Yessirreee, I have 42,000 cherries on this card made for Shari. Shari is undergoing treatment for breast cancer and could use some cheering up.

This cherry image is by DeNami Design and happens to be an image I bought while visiting da Mudder in Colorado a few years ago.  We went to a stamping expo and DeNami Design had a huge booth there.  It was my first time seeing their stamps, and I was overwhelmed by the thousands of stamps they had.   I loved them, too!  Because of that trip and buying the stamp there, it's even more special for me that I can use this particular cherry image for Mudder's niece, Shari.  I colored my cherries with Copic markers, cut them out, and lacquered them. There are even cherries on what looks to be solid black cardstock. They are black embossed on the Rockabilly dp, but they're hard to see in the photo.

Charlene, this card is AMAZING! I love that you had patterned paper to go along with our stamp!

So glad that you were able to visit our booth in Colorado. We do a show in Novi, MI in August- hopefully you can visit us then. :)

We'd love for you to play along with a DeNami challenge sometime- the next one starts on Monday. :) http://denami.blogspot.com
