A cherry of an Easter Tradition

My husband and I got our traditional Easter gift early!  I talked the other day about our Black Friday tradition, so it seems fitting to talk about an Easter tradition.
Cherries are one of my favorite foods (and pasta- no worries I don't eat these together! lol!) These are my socks and I thought they deserved a fun thank you card for my MIL.  I saw that the cherry blossom festival has begun in DC so...
I made this fun little cherry card!  The image is Cherries in Colander by Karen Lockhart and it is so sweet!  I colored the image with copics and then glazed the cherries to give them a juicy look.

I used my Cricut Wild Card cartridge to make the card and the coordinating envie.   The base and envie are Bazzill paper.  I punched a circle for the inside of the card so I could actually write a thank you. :)  I'll post DH's socks later when I can think of a card that goes with them (wait 'til you see 'em).

I entered this at Hand Full of Stamps for their sweet challenge. :)

What kinda Easter tradition(s) do you have?  What kind of project could you make that's inspired by an Easter tradition?


  1. I love Cherries too - those socks are SO CUTE!

  2. That is so cute and what fun to have some interesting traditions.

  3. Great Card! I'll bet it is beautiful in Washington now. I love fresh sweet bing cherries. We are just starting to get a little green in the grass.

  4. Adorable card!! I totally forgot that I have this cartridge! Thank you for reminding me. I see many new opportunities ahead!
