MMTPT and the CC - 2 today!

First, this is for the Teapot Tuesday challenge.......Cherries. This card was done with the following poem (written by me of course) in the back of my mind.

I have a dear granddaughter
And she's a lot like me.
We both like eating cherries.
(They're RED as they can be!)

We like all things with cherries,
Especially for desserts.......
Of course they're always yummy,
And RED - that never hurts!

Drinks that have some cherries
Are ever on our mind.
Shirley Temples work for us,
And easy for us to find.

We like to add some cherries,
And juice of course for flavor
To ginger ale and orange juice,
The taste we really savor!

So here's to my sweet Erin
And cherries by the score.
When we have maraschinos
Who could ask for more!!!

I hope you like the card and poem, Erin. I have LOTS of cherries in the fridge, of course, just waiting for us!!

The Color Challenge today uses white, River Rock and Basic Gray. Here's what I did the first time:

I made the lamb by stamping with the gray on River Rock and used the out of the box technique. I really liked it, but thought it might be a little dark, and thought I might restamp the lamb in white. Here is the new result:

I think I like the white one better. It stands out more, and that was what I wanted all along.

Thanks for looking today. We are having another snowstorm, and joined the lightly falling snow with coffee in the hot tub this morning. It's snowing hard now, so I'll be doing a lot of R & R with puzzles, a book, and keeping my feet up. What a day!
