Strawberries Anyone?

Good Afternoon everyone. I hope everyone is having a good week. I got back late Monday afternoon from a few days in Maine. My sister and I go every year. We hit the outlets for shopping, spent some time walking on the beach and then went to a beautiful Spa on the cliffs overlooking the ocean for facials. Yesterday I just didn't do anything! That's the great thing about vacations. You can do nothing if you want to. Today I have been busy. My AC was making funny noises so I called a repair person to look at it. I have to have the motor rebuilt or buy a new boiler and AC unit. I'm going with the rebuild. I worked on my nieces BD card, my brothers BD card (neither of them done yet) and don't laugh but I am designing my XMAS card. I like to do it during one of my vacations so I know what I want to do and I can work on them as I get time. If I waited I would never get them done.

I bought this stamp at one of my LSS a while ago. This is my first Cornish Heritage Farms set. I really like the animal series. I see so many cute cards made with them. It was alot of fun to color. I had tried coloring it when I first bought it but when I used the red copics I had they were too dark and the strawberries just didn't look right not matter what I did. I had a 25% coupon at my LSS and saw that they had some different reds so I bought them. I was so happy to see that they worked much better on this card. I used stickles on the flowers and I touched the edges of the strawberries with shimmerz.

I hope everyone is having a relaxing week like I am.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you like my card.

This card is sooo cute! I love these Friendly Kritters stamps. I haven't colored mine in a while maybe it is time to pull them out and play with them. You did a wonderful job on the coloring, Great Card Peggy.
