Enjoy Cheerwine!

I received this beautiful card this week from Regina Andari, who is a member of the NC Demo group.  Regina does not live too far from me but we have never met!  Regina was given several sheets of coupons (50cents off) for Cheerwine soda by the distributor who was stocking the shelves at a store she was shopping at.  She couldn't use all of them so offered them to Facebook friends and I was a lucky recipient.

I love this combo of Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride.  I don't have this DSP (sigh).  It is from Birthday Bouquet (pg 9 of Occasions catty).  Isn't this a gorgous card?  I love the pleating she has done.  I will be CASEing this one for sure!

If you are not local, you might not know about Cheerwine!  You are missing out.  It reminds me of cherry Dr Pepper.  It is hard to find outside of the Carolinas.  When I loved in Texas and Washington, I really missed drinking my Cheerwine.  I have also turned my daughter into a big fan of the drink.  Whenever she comes to visit, she always takes a 12 pack back with her in her luggage!  We are taking some to her this week in DC and we usually stock her up when we drive to Texas to visit.  I'm not sure what she is going to do in Hawaii!!

I got this from their website:

"Created in 1917 in Salisbury, North Carolina by a general store owner named L.D. Peeler, this singular soft drink with a hint of wild cherry and a bubbly effervescence became an immediate hit. Folks from all around the county came to LD's store to give it a try. 

Soon cold cases all over North Carolina were filled with the "Nectar of North Carolina." It was known to put a smile on everyone's lips who gave it a try, and the Legend was born. 

Raised in a glass. 

Generations later, the Legend has grown larger than life. Family and friends in every state of the Union clamor for this taste that always surprises. Cheerwine is regularly spotted in such far flung places as the great wall of China. The fjords of Northern Europe. The battlefields of Iraq. 

Today, L.D.’s great grandson Cliff Ritchie leads the company, as Cheerwine officially expands to new parts of the country and continues to win loyal fans with just one sip."
