Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Thanks for all of the well wishes on recovering from being sick.  I'm  feeling much better than I did last weekend and finally starting to feel like my normal self again! We had another heat wave in Southern Cali and this definitely has been one of the hottest days this year including what we had for most of the summer months.  Of course our family just had to get away to the beach to cool off! :)  

I wanted to share a pic of my son, Noah, enjoying the water.  He's definitely the fish of the family!:) Despite the heat, the water was still very cold so he decided to wear his wetsuit! LOL  But the cool weather was really refreshing on this very hot day! And it definitely was gorgeous out there!:)

So on to my inspiration for you all this Sunday.  Here is my card....

I wanted to take out an oldie but goodie from TGF Cheeky Cherry Collection called "Cheeky Howdy"!  She is one of my favorite images from this collection and I think she is just so adorable!  I stamped my cheeky gal with my favorite Memento ink in Black Tuxedo and then colored her up with my copic sketch markers. The paper collection I used is called "Farmhouse" by Crate Paper.  I couldn't resist using the design papers with the cherries to match the cherries in her hair!  I edged all of my papers in my Tim Holtz distress ink in Faded Jeans.  I went with the Cherry theme again using the cherry blossom flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sprayed these up with my Tattered Angels "Iridescent Gold" to give them some  pretty shimmer.  I also added some random pearl flourishes I've had in my stash. To further embellish, I added some light blue rhinestones from Kaiser Kraft to the corners of my card.  The sentiment "Smile" is from a random stamp set I have at home.

Hope you all like my card and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
Your next stop is Nicole!
