So Berry Sweet Of You

(** Please scroll down for my All That Scraps post **)

Hello again friends.  It seems I've been making so many fall or winter cards lately and I still wanted to hang on to these last few weeks of summer and warm weather.  Strawberries are one of my family's favorite fruits and we've been so lucky to have lots of these yummy berries this year.  So I thought this image would be a perfect way to remember what a great (although very hot) summer we've had :-)


This little cutie is Strawberry Patch.  She's from the Sugar Nellie Home Grown Manga Collection and you can find her over at Funky Kits.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and used a black glaze pen on the strawberry seeds.  I saw this paper awhile back and thought it would be perfect for this card ... but then ended up covering up most of the strawberries on the backing paper lol.  The sentiment is from CC Designs Berry Logos and the strawberry and flower bloom are from a CC Cutter.  Hmm, I think I'll go eat a few strawberries now!  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Anita

Hi Anita, goodness it feels like ages since I popped over to say hello - and it probably has been as well! Life with a small person on holiday is very hectic. Thankfully school is now back and I'll get my craft 'me' time (for that read surfing time!!) back.

Gorgeous cards as always and look out for me much more often.
