TE Blast from the Past Blog Hop: Berries & Cherries


Since it's the middle of Summer, I wanted my blast from the past to be Berries & Cherries* - who couldn't use a little chocolate covered something every now & then?  I know I could right about now!  Making this card got me craving a little chocolate too!  I used the newly released Summertime Project Pantry kit for my card (which I think goes really well - isn't the liner of the sweet treat cute paper-pieced with the paper in the kit?

Here's a close up of the chocolate covered cherry on my card - to show you the delicious shine from the Glossy Accents I used, I just love it!  My card uses the layout that fellow Bakers Dozen design team member created just for us (if we wanted to use it) for the hop!  I attached a picture of the sketch if you'd like to play along too - isn't it fun? 

There's more: we'll be drawing one random winner to receive a FREE Taylored Expressions stamp set of your choice from all the participants in the blog hop below and we'll also be choosing another creation to be featured in an upcoming TE newsletter.  So, if you're not participating this time, you can next month, when we hop again so take out your TE stamps (or buy some now so you can play next month!)  Be sure to check out all the great creations below:
