Mmmm...fresh strawberries!

Who doesn't like strawberries? I know I do and I know some people don't like them. For today's purpose lets pretend we all like strawberries, okay? Anyway, I made this card last night when I saw a card that Beate had made. I knew it was the perfect layout for this strawberry image. The card is a 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" size and I almost wish I had made this just a bit smaller but I think it looks just fine. The images are from Lockhart Stamp Co and I got them at Ellen Hutson's Store. She has some super cute stuff there! I still have been struggling a lot with my stamping and it sure gets frustrating. Hopefully, this cutie card will raise my confidence level just a bit and I'll be back at it regularly.

Today, we take off for Todd graduation even though it isn't until tomorrow. The boys and I are going to stay at a hotel and do the whole swimming and fun thing. They are so excited they get to be out of school for a day and a half!

So I won't be posting probably for the next 5 days or so. I'll miss you all but remember you can sign up for my Prize Swap until the 23rd so please do that while I'm gone. I'd be so happy to come home and see all the spots are taken!

Have a great rest of your week and a wonderful weekend!

Stamps: Strawberries and saying by Lockhart Stamp Co
Card Stock: Rose Red, DP from either Magnolia or Wild Asparagus
