About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

How sweet it is.........

....fresh strawberries in the summer time.

My hubs planted some strawberry plants this year and we have picked a few already.
I saved enough to make him some homemade strawberry ice cream....
it is sweeeti-licious!!!!

I created this card for two different challenges.

One is @ Cardz TV blog....its called "Love in a Jar"
the second one is @ BBTB2...its called "Summer Foods"

I think this card works for both of them really well.

I used Kate's ABC's for the jar cut and then adhered it to some acetate for the illusion of real glass and I then fussy cut around the edges. 
I used a heart punch for the strawberries and Boho blossom punch for the green hulls and a MS leaf punch to fill some empty space. 
The "SWEET" sentiment is from Michael's dollar spot. 
The background is embossed with a folder from my Oriental Weave set of folders.
I thought it looked a little like a basket weave. 

Until later, sweetsies.......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
