Want a little cheese with that w[h]ine?!

That was the first thing I did today when I woke up, I started w[h]ining because it was so darn early.  I am talking 2:30 am early...I couldn't sleep.  Call me a w[h]ino if you will, but it is only 11:00 am now and it feels like it should be 3:00 pm (at least!).  So don't blame me if I w[h]ine a little and have some cheese ta' boot!  :) Are you done with my cheesy...er, corny wine jokes?!  Well I certainly am!  however, if you scroll down you can see why it was my opener. :)

Check out this fun card I made from my Newton's Nook Just Say Cheese set.  I just love how cutie-cute-cuterson and punny this set is!  I can hardly stand it!  I started with the little images by stamping and masking, then I colored and highlighted.  As an aside, I have to tell you that my white signo pen was being a pain in the patootie (yes...more whining from me)...grrrr...but it still looks mostly OK.  After working on the image I decided I wanted to go with a rich red cardstock (aka SU! Cherry Cobbler) b/c it looked like a fine red wine that would go so well with the cheese.  Yum!  AND...that combo worked out so I could use this fun washi from Freckled Fawn and my brand new gold ink pad from Encore as well.

The layout for this card was insipred by this week's CAS(E) This Sketch #54.  As always, CAS is pretty hard for me, so I am thrilled when I make it happen.

It has been a few posts since I had a question, not entirely sure if most folks like them or get sick of them but I had a few say they like it, so..... today's Question of the Day is- What does this color combo (Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron(ish) and Gold) make you think of or what kind of creation would you make with this color combo?  OR another option is to tell me your favorite cheese and wine (not whine) combo. 

Happy Tuesday! :)

Your delightful post is the PERFECT frame for your wonderfully delightful card! Love those images (NN stamps are sweet!!), and your "cheese and wine" colours work perfectly to showcase them! Fab take on the sketch, too! The colours you've chosen have me wishing for an actual 'selection of inks to choose from' in my collection! The 'basics' just aren't cutting it for me anymore...I. Want. Inks! My favourite wine is Citra - a rather inexpensive red - and it goes with everything. Especially pizza; especially home-made pizza...Thanks for the day-brightener!

What, I commented on this, and where is my little love comment?... Well I love this cuteness and the design!!!

I think of PIE..Maybe because I am hungry and when someone says Cherry Cobbler, I want to eat Cherry Cobbler. I love Cherry Cobbler.. And never get is.


Have a nice day Katie!!
