I know, two posts in one day – go figure. I should have my blogging license revoked, because I sure don’t follow the rules! It seems it’s either feast or famine with me.
Today we’re feasting -- on strawberries. Speaking of which, I will share an embarrassing little secret: There was a summer day, very long ago when my kids were small, that I dropped them all off with a friend so I could indulge in a basket of strawberries all by myself, no sharing! Shameful, huh?
When I saw the Flourishes Any Which Way Sketch Challenge this week, I couldn't wait to pull out my Strawberries set and get to work on it. Technically, it is still summer, and I’m not letting go of it too easily. There are still strawberries at the fruit store. OK, with today’s global shipping they’re there all year, but still…
The image is colored with Copic markers (duh), matted on Garden Green cardstock, and popped up on foam dots. I punched a hole on the left side to thread some red herringbone twill ribbon through and tied a bow (haven’t done that in a while!). The card base is covered with red gingham paper from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh pad, and a strip of blue calico print paper (from the same pad) finishes it off. Very summer-in-the-country looking, huh?
And I think I’m gonna head out to the fruit store right now!
