Springtime, Summertime, Jillibean Soup and Operation Write Home
Stars and Stamps - Operation Write Home's card blog - has "summertime" as their midweek challenge. I am just squeeking in on this challenge.
How much more summer could you get than strawberries and a gingham table cloth. I got a 6 x 6 pad while shopping this week end and the strawberry paper is from the pad - I had also bought the 12 x 12 piece of paper - it has the strawberries on one side and the green gingham on the backside. The lace is from the lace bag. It is gorgeous and finished on both edges. I made sure there was red behind the holes in the lace so they showed up. The stamp is from Hero Arts.
The challenge on The Pink Elephant is a spring time card - in Wisconsin - Winter/Spring/Summer all tend to come together - so I am sharing it with them for a spring time card also. With the weather we had in March - many of the strawberry fields were already to bloom - hopefully we will get some strawberries this year fresh from the patch. Nothing is better.
One card will go to Operation Write Home and one will go to my mother.
Have a good day.
