thank-you berry much!

I know I know...you have seen me use this paper twice in a row now! I can't help it, I just love it and I want to use on every card I do!LOL Well, over at Magnolia Down Under...they have a really fun challenge....MASKING. I stamped little Tilda in the strawberry patch and then masked her to place the fence along the bottom. If there is one thing I truly love to do... well it is strawberry picking, which here in Ontario usually starts in June. I love to make homemade strawberry jam. Sometimes I add a few rasberries to the strawberries and I find that is really tastey!

For Tildas little picnic basket I pulled out one of my favourite stamp sets from Papertrey called "Vintage Picnic". I just love that set so I will be using it quite a bit this spring/summer! This stamp of Tilda had her holding a load of presents so when I inked her up I just did not ink the presents and then stamped her...so then I used my strawberries from Vintage Picnic to place a batch of strawberries in her hand! I thought she was so cute this way!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful day...and thank-you so much for taking time out of your day to come and visit. It is so nice to read all your comments...and I love coming to visit your blogs as well. They inspire me so much!!!!

  10. Hi Christine, I wouldn't care if I saw you use this paper on EVERY card...It is gorgeous and as usual your card is stunning, I just LOVE visiting your blog, I cannot wait to see what you have done next.
    I did smile to myself when you mentioned strawberry picking, my son loves them and when I used to take him he used to make me roar with laughter as he did not know which berry to pick next, he would run from one to another shouting "there's a good one"....memories.
    Love Debbiexx

  21. I have just returned from a month out of the country and I see you have been very creative in my absence. I have so many blogs to catch up on and unfortunately I just don't have time to comment on all the posts I missed and so I was planning to hop through each individual’s blog and identify just one or two chosen faves to leave a comment on. I just can’t do this with you, though, because I love them ALL! This is particularly cute and beautifully executed! I am loving thoses papers and the beautifully coloured Tilda! Hugs to you! Lesley
