Outside the lines

I loved, I mean I LOVED coloring books as a kid. Still do actually- I have a few of those "adult" coloring books. Any way, I would save my allowance to go down to the five and dime to buy them. I would stand in front of the rack and just take my time picking out the perfect one. I would bring it home, pull out my crayons- of course I had the biggest set with the built in sharpener and I would carefully start to color in the images. Now there it is- I carefully colored in- I NEVER colored outside the lines. I have to admit, I still find it hard to color outside the lines, on paper and in life. 

Today's card is reminder to me to not take life so seriously and :color outside the lines".

Since it is the first of the month, it is time for a new challenge at The Rainbow Card Challenge. This month's color is "cherry" That bright vibrant red. 

This month I am bringing back the musical inspiration!

Cherry Cherry by the incomparable Neil Diamond!

You have one month to to put a cherry on top and join us at The Rainbow Card Challenge to show us your best cherry cards!
