Early Strawberries

     My first early strawberries, started in seedling pots indoors in February, were ripe enough to pick today so I had a couple sliced up on my cereal this morning!  Then I went directly to the craft room and made this card with a delightful image from MHK Designs.


     I wanted something completely CAS with no embellishment at all.  I colored the image with my watercolors and inked the edges with ProMarkers.  There was already so much white space around the image that I used two different papers around the edges of the card front before adding the image.

     Challenges:
Art Impressions
Aud Sentiments
Colour Crazy
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends
Outlawz Twisted Thurs.
Pattie's Creations
Polkadoodles
Scrapper's Delights
Time Out

     I think that's all I have for today but since I'm still playing in the craft room, who know?  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
