Berry Sweet...

Well- I designed this card sometime towards the beginning of last week... I got tied up with posting all of the swap results and had intended to post this one once those were finished... but I had a slight delay. Friday we lost power due to a bad storm passing through Michigan. Then Saturday and Sunday my daughter was sick... so I didn't get a lot accomplished while caring for her. The card though was fun to make- I made myself use scraps out of my bin. It's hard to tell but the strawberry panel is scored 1/4 inch in at the top and left sides. The sentiment piece is also scored 1/4 inch along the top edge. I used antique copper brads. I loved this card so much in person that I scrounged up 2 more pieces of the patterned paper that have been on my "for sale" table the last few months and made 12 cards in total... yeah!! all that paper is officially used, AND I've got a supply of this card for my fall craft shows.
(Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink- ALL other supplies by Close To My Heart. Colors: Cranberry, White Daisy and Clover Meadow Green. Patterned paper from a SUPER OLD paper pack that I can't even remember the name of- from about 5-6 years ago. Gingham Ribbon is also retired. )

We did have scattered bouts of feeling well and playing outside this weekend- however, my daughter got stuck sharing the kiddie pool with the dog!! My husband took our lab for a LONG walk in the heat Saturday and the poor thing came home, kicked my daughter out of the pool and proceded to sit in the water for a good 4 - 5 minutes before she could reclaim her space. We didn't even have time to take his leash off!! He just jumped in.
I'm hoping for more time to post this week- but I've got a LOT going on.
