Yum, strawberries

I said I would be back and here I am with a complete contrast to this morning's Christmas card. I love this yummy strawberry stamp from Lili of the Valley which has been coloured with Promarkers with a touch of Sakura Rosestar pen. The gorgeous glittery papers are from the new Lucy Cromwell pack from Papermania. The colours are so summery and I love the little cupcakes, strawberries and bunting, so Summery. I added a piece of sanded embossed Core'dinations from the new Pink Paislee pack from Crafter’s Companion. I've distressed all the edges with my TH distressing tool and inked them with DI Spun Sugar. I felt this card didn't need too many embellishments so just added some Memory Box die cut butterflies and a butterfly sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

I am off to a craft group tomorrow for the day. It is the first time I have ever been to one and I am really looking forward to it. You can make what you like and I have been deliberating between scrapbooking and cardmaking. I decided on cards as that will be less to take as I am making up some cards ready with papers, ribbon etc and diecutting the images so I only have to take my markers and embellishments,tools, dies and BigShot. I say only!
