Lucky Me



I couldn't wait to use my new Spellbinders Market Fresh - Aren't You Sweet Collection dies.  I'm a fruitatarian (well, not really but I LOVE fruit) and had so much fun with them.


The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's A Friend Like You stamp set...it's been stamped with Midnight ink.  The strawberries have been die cut with Brick and Lime Green cardstock.  The edges have been inked up in the coordinating ink colors.


The gingham panel is by My Favorite Things - Farm Fresh Gingham.  Gotta have gingham with sweet strawberries!

My card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:


I don't know how many of you are in the Pacific Northwest but it's been so hot!  I know I'm not alone when I say that I'm a mild weather girl...that's why I've always loved living in Seattle.  Lately, we've had some really warm summers.  I'm grateful for our portable a/c units but unfortunately how my craft room is set up, I can only use a box fan.  It gets might toasty up here...so I try to get all my crafting done in the morning.

Today I'm busy finishing up my kitting for the Hero Arts Extravaganza at Impress this Saturday!  I hope that you've signed up!  We have 5 card projects, everyone receives a gift from Hero Arts and you get 20% off your Hero Arts order!
