Shabby Tea Room "Hi Ho Cherry O Challenge"

Hello Friends!!
I would like to share with you today a Recipe Pocket that I created
I created this Cherry Recipe Pocket specifically for the
Shabby Tea Room week 101 
Hi Ho Cherry O Challenge
Here is the inspiration photo

Lucky for me, it is "Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp and Show"
so I am sharing this creation there too!!
I will have to say I designed the pocket and created the template earlier this week, and finally was able to figure out the cut setting of my new Black Cat Cougar (I am getting  
It is oh so shabby..and sweet as can be.
I used the Gecko Galz Digi Papers 
Which I thought were perfect for the Cherry theme.
I don't even like Cherry pie..LOL..(but I did eat it, to be polite).
I used some Red blingy bling from Pro 31 Designs.
I also used some Pearl sprays, red ribbon, flatback pearls, mulbery paper roses and porcelain rosesI also used my perfect medium pen and perfect pearls in perfect gold.  
Here is the recipe card.  One side says Ingredients...and the other side says Directions.  I added two blingy blings in red to the little cherries on both sides.
Here you can see that I used three different paper from the Gecko Galz digi pack.  I also used the Cherries from Gecko Galz too.  I used GIMP (to create the center collage on the front), and Inkscape to create my template and apply my digi papers to.  Then used my Black Cat Cougar to cut them out.
Here is a picture of my file.
Here is a picture of the tags alone.  I used my crop o dile to cut my hole for the ribbon and to set my grommet.
Here is the back of my Cherry Recipe Pocket.
It says...Ooh so Cherry!
Too bad I don't like Cherry Pie..or I would of wrote a recipe on  Here is a close up of the top of the back.  I have this thing about the back looking almost as good as the front.
Thank goodness I was able to get this finally cut out.  I believe I had at least 7 copies that I tried to cut before I got it right...LOL.

I did have a few pieces that survived my not so great cutting techniques today.  So I was able to create another Cherry Pocket..this one with a tag.
I used one of Tim's fragments on this one.  With a tiny picture of cherries :0)  So shabby yummy!!  This one I will be sharing over at the Flying Unicorn for Sandi's Challenge.
I just love all the embellies..and the digi papers!! 
These are some of my favorite pieces...because they are
the colors I LOVE.

  4. Ohmygo0sh! SUPER cute! What a fab idea it would be to make one of these tags to include with a cherry dessert you give to someone (and include the recipe). Love the colors too. Awesome pearls and sweet details~
