Fresh Srawberries

It's a beautiful, sunny day here in Florida.  A nice change from all of the rain we've been having. We really needed the rain, but it's great to have a whole day of sunshine for a change.  A warm, southern welcome to my newest follower.  Thanks so much for choosing to follow my blog. :)

I love this digi image by Designed2Delight that I've used on my card.  Fresh fruit is such a treat and strawberries are a favorite of mine.  When I was a teen there was a "Pick Your Own" strawberry farm just down the road from my dad's house.  I used to spend a great deal of time there picking strawberries just so I could eat the strawberries fresh off the plant.  If they had weighed me before and after picking they would have charged me extra. ;)  The sentiment stamp is from International Greetings.  The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils. The punch is from Martha Stewart and I added some dew drops to the card for a bit of embellishment.

Blessings
  • Nice fruit on the clearance table at the produce stand.
  • A new devotional book that I'm getting so much from.
  • Mark has been finding lots of used books for me lately - gotta read or a day isn't complete. :)
Have a fabulous day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly

Shelly what a great card. Your comment about the pick your own strawberries reminds me of place near my childhood home. Now I have the pleasure of picking them from my own patch!
I love the layout and your coloring is fantastic. I'm so glad you could join us at Designed 2 Delight this week.

Hi, Shelly! I love the strawberries. I did some strawberries for OWH cards-used an image from Beccy's Place. Looks so much like D2D's! Thanks for your comment on the birthday card I made. I used prismacolor pencils, too, with the colorless blender marker to get the pastel effect. I absolutely LOVE the blender marker. It takes a bit of practice, but I'm usually pleased with the results.
