You're a peach - for Charisma Cardz Challenge

A new challenge for me today, I have never joined in with the Charisma Cardz challenge before, this week the challenge is simply to put something to eat or drink on your card. I thought of my Preserves cricut cartridge and came up with this. Both the sentiment stamps - bought separately, are by Studio G, the papers were from the Cafe stack by DCWV, and the Prima flowers were part of my gift from Eileen. For some reason the colours are a bit off in the photo, the plain cardstock, and the pattern on the peach are a really deep peach colour, not pink - I should have taken the photo out in the open air probably. Never mind.

The layering on this cartridge is really easy, I cut the peach at 4" in brown, then the peach and flower again at 4", they all cut perfectly to scale. I ran the flower through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder before popping it on the peach.
Talking about food, if you love good recipes and photos that will make your mouth water, head over to Katie.s blog, Katie pops over here, I followed her link and just love her foodie photos and easy recipes.....

We went to get some new plants yesterday, to replace the ones that were killed in the cold winter they had in Florida. On the way, we made a stop for my daily fix of coffee. A chap came up and asked if he could sit with us (there were no other customers there!). He sat for about twenty minutes, reeling off joke after joke - all about lawyers. We sat there, smiling (we didn't laugh very hard, the jokes weren't very funny). Then as suddenly as he appeared, he stood up, said goodbye, hopped onto a fabulous Harley Davidson bike and roared off. Mike was totally bemused. 'What was all that about?'
I shrugged 'Dunno, something happens like that every day when I come here...........'

  7. Love the card Enfys! I love the sentiments too! I had to laugh at your coffee experience. Now I know why I said to myself "This woman will be my friend," the same happens to me!!!! Complete strangers, even when I'm obviously in a hurry and frazzled they are stopping me to chat! Never had one that told lawyer jokes non stop and then drove off on a Harley... must be a Florida thing. :) J/K hehe

    Crafty Hugs!

  13. Your card is fantastic! I love the texture, especially with the "ribbon" on the buttons. Isn't it fun to meet new characters when making a causal coffee stop? :o)

  14. Enfys, your card is lovely! Wish I had just a tiny bit of your creativity.

    Also, I LOVE the personal stories you add. They always make me smile or laugh right out loud. You should write a book, or perhaps you already have?

  21. Hi En, What a pretty card! I always love your clever sentiments, does that come from having to think up quirky ones for Papercraft Inspirations or do you have that kind of mind? I for one always struggle! lol! (to answer your question... no my card isnt versamarked, it's the pattern already on the paper...cheating! ;) jenny

  25. LOL! I do love your posts!

    At first I thought you were trying to get us Brits to feel sorry for some bad weather in Florida over the winter??!! lol!

    Seems there's never a dull moment in your local coffee shop! Doesnt it just make you wonder exactly what was gong through his mind as he joined you?!

    Super card I love the colourway, peach has been so very neglected here for many a decade!
