Hello friends!!! It's a really happy day today because....
IT'S OFFICIALLY THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!! YAY!!!!
You know what I love about Spring-time? I love the flowers, the green grass and the yummy fruits in May and June like STRAWBERRIES!! So yummy!!!
I'm so in the mood for Strawberry Shortcake, sitting outside and enjoying the sun! OK...but before I do that, I'd like to share a special creation I made for some challenges going on:
When I saw Elisabeth Bell come out with this darling Curly Locks Kiki digital image, I just KNEW I had to get it!! :) A few years back in the day, I enjoyed doing some cross-stitching and it reminds me of this!
And you would've thought that I'd pull out some of my cross-stitch fabric and thread and create a nice little piece with this image, right? Well, that WAS my intention, however...time gets in the way of all of us and so I just settled for some good 'ol faux stitches!! I sure had fun with this one anyway!!
I saw the lovely bowl of strawberries in the image and thought I'd base my color scheme and theme around that! I thought it worked out really nice with my strawberry papers and charm! After I was finished, I decided to spray the whole card with some vanilla smooch spritz. You can see the bit of shimmer...
So...I thought I'd play along in some of these challenges before they end!

Enjoy your very first day of Spring my friends!!! HUGS
