Sweet Summer Strawberries...

Hello everyone!!


Hoping that you are staying cool. It is so hot here! They are telling us that by Saturday we are going to be around 121 degrees...... uuuhhhggggggg That is to hot!! I will NOT be going outside for anything. LOL... I bet that the dog will not even want to go out and potty. LOL..


But I tell you I still do love summer time because I can grow my strawberries out in the backyard. I LOVE THEM!

I thought that I had better make a fun summer time card with this sweet little Maggie using some of my favortie colors!


I have used #338 Strawberry Yummy Tilda. She can be found for sale at the Magnolia-licious by clicking on the stamp name. This little cutie also comes in the mini size and it is also in stock right now. I have colored her with my copic markers. Around the edges of the image I have used my Ranger distressed inks.


Papers: Now mind you that these are all OLD OLD PAPERS from my stash.. Melissa Frances, MME, Graphic45, Keeping Memories Alive,Scenic Route and Bazzill cardstocks.


Embellies: velvet ribbon, bakers twine, ribbon, flower by prima, other paper flowers, big perals, tiny perals, heart shaped brads. I have added stickles to the flowers and the butterflies.
Tools: round Spellbinders, sewing machine, MS butterfly punches



Challenges I have made this card for...
Pixie Cottage: Strawberries & Cream
ABC: X is for crossing ribbons (I have crossed my bakers twine I hope that counts)
Creative Inspirations: Summer
Stampavie & More: 3 or more layers
Crafty Cardmakers: Spots and Stripes
Now can you belive that tomorrow is JULY FIRST?
WHERE OH WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?

I will be back tomorrow with my Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge card. I hope you will find time to stop by and say hello.
