Happy Birthday, Mr. President...

Ok, and isn't it President's Day soon?   LOL!   Perfect timing, I must say...

Today is another Farm Fresh Friday over at The Greeting Farm and I LOVE our  friend and DT Member Randi's Challenge this week:  "Vintage-esque".   In a nutshell?  To create a card or project using SOME sort of Vintage elements.   LOVE!

Well, it happens to be another Sneek Peek a.k.a."Cheek Peek" today, as we are previewing the new Cheeky Cherry line yet again...WOO HOO!  It's all leading up for the big release and Blog Hop on Sunday night at 8pm CST....Will you be there, My Cheeky Valentines?  I hope so!

So today little Miss Cheeky Glamour got a little Marilyn'd as proven  by my card today.   I used some really pretty, somewhat vintage looking DP from Pink Paislee, and then distressed everything with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in Antique Linen=my fave color!   Even the Prima got a little distress ink and then I spritzed it with Tattered Angels (Randi's fave!) Glimmer Mist.  Purdy!

Be sure to visit the other DT members' blogs....ONE of us is hiding some more Cheekies!  Will YOU be the lucky winner???


Last but not least, dont' forget to check out the CLUB ANYA & Friends Blog today, too!  There's more info on the Blog Hop Sunday, More "Cheek peeks" and ANOTHER chance to WIN WIN WIN!   Don't forget to visit:


Well, I'll leave you with a quote from our sweet Miss Marilyn herself.  She may not have been very lucky in love, but she sure was amazing!


xoxo
Jess ;)

Love your card. Absolutely awesome. I think this is my favorite of the Cheeky Cherry Collection. And they all remind me and my friend of Maralyn Monroe. Would love to win these litte cuties!
