#SSINKCC40 Pineapple in the Window

ssinkcc40-create-with-cherylStylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation has a Color Challenge today!  And I’m loving these colors!!  Old Olive.  Flirty Flamingo.  Sahara Sand.

I haven’t made a Window Card in a while, & they’re one of my favorites!  So I went for a Hawaiian Window Theme.

I’ll list the ingredients here:

  • Botanical Blooms
  • Pop of Paradise
  • Hearth & Home Thinlits
  • Botanical Builder Framelits
  • Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
  • Wink of Stella Gold
  • Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please leave me a comment & let me know what you think of my card…  What’s in your window this time of year?  What’s actually in my window is lots of avocados & lilikoi!!  Making more lilikoi jelly this week and lots of guacamole… lucky me!

Now head on over to the SSINK Page & see what the other girls have made using these gorgeous colors!

Botanical Blooms

I love this card…mainly because of that sweet curvy leaf cut!  I made that using a  new framelit called Botanical Builder Framelits.

Brand New Journal for 2016!

createwithcheryl 2016 journal

I made this brand new journal last week & hope to use it all year.  My friend & upline, Anne, came over & we crafted & brainstormed.  My word for this year is FOCUS.  I tend to overschedule myself and get stressed out.  I’m hoping I can FOCUS on the thing I’m doing, or on the person I’m with.

I’m mainly thinking about my mom.  She lives in my cottage & has recently stopped driving.  So that means she depends on me a  lot.  Sometimes trips into town with her take a long time & I’m impatiently thinking of all the other things I need to be doing.  I’ll bet a lot of you would love to have this problem & have your  mom with you!  I’m so fortunate to have my mom close by!

Be present.  Or be a present to the person I’m with.


Don’t you LOVE those letters?!!  They’re in the new catalog!!  There’s a stamp set & Framelit Bundle (save 15%) and it’s just in time for Sale-a-Bration!

Stock up on these journals now!  They’re in the Clearance Rack on sale for just $4.39!  That’s over 50% off!
