I struggle with puns a little bit, but when this sentiment popped into my head, the creative juices just went flowing..LOL

How about a few close ups and some details:

This adorable mouse can be found in the Birthday Critters cutting file and I created the title with some free fonts I found online.. 

The margarita glass I used for the bowl is located in the "Happy Hour" cutting file..
The ladder I created myself with some square cuts, which I just welded together using the SIL software and that big tag I used for the background of the card, well you can find that in the "Layered Tags" cutting file..

The delicious looking cherries can be found on the "Ice Cream Treats" cutting file

decided to top the word "cherries" with a little cherry since I thought they were so cute..
all of the faux stitching was created in the SIL software, just print it on your image :)

Spread your wings card-PPPR reveal

Happy Tuesday fellow crafters..
Here today to share a card I created as my design team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon using one of the Flowers from the Spring Garden cutting file and creating a 3D flower.. 

Here is what I created:

It measures 6x6.. The branches are on the Honey Bee's cutting file
and the scalloped frame I created using the Scalloped borders from the Borders 2 cutting file.. I just
welded 4 of them together to create the frame :)

used foam tape in between the layers of the flowers and then dabbed some baby blue 
and green stickles on it..

Here you can see the stickles on the leaves..

and my cute butterfly all stickled up..
