A Berry For You

Berries are one of my favorite things about summer.  Sweet, juicy, low in calories, great alone, on cereal and yogurt or paired with desserts....oh boy!  When I saw that Simon Says Stamp has a challenge called Summer Fruit, I was in!


This is rather a fancy strawberry card, isn't it?  The delicious berry is from Mason Jar Summer Add On by Inspired By Stamping.  I made my own 'patterned paper' with a houndstooth stamp from their Background Basics II set, and added a sentiment from Small Fancy Labels II.  I layered them on a fleur de lis frame from Fancy Labels 2, on a Fancy Labels 2 die cut.   See, I told you this was fancy!  Hee hee.


Mind if I show you the cutest strawberry I ever saw?  This is my oldest daughter when she was almost 5 months old.  I made her costume from a little red sweatshirt, tights, and a bathing suit hat, some black fabric paint and green felt (looks black in the picture, though).  


Oh, this brings back wonderful memories!
