Proverbs

Such wonderful Halloween tags last week and I really enjoyed seeing all of them. Thank you for the wonderful comments left about mine--always encouraging.

I thought a lot about this week and the proverbs and didn't find it easy for some unknown reason. There are so many to chose from so maybe it was too much choice that was my problem.


I chose this proverb as it seemed like a happy one but when I looked at what it meant I wasn't too sure as it seems to have taken on various meaning with the new phrase 'cherry picking'. To me it means life is 'sweet and good' so I am sticking with that.

I made a background paper with cherries on it then coloured a drawing of cherries in a bowl. This I embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a bit of sparkle--this doesn't show on the photographs unfortunately.

Can't wait to see what everyone else has chosen
