because nice matters....

Happy Monday to all...is there actually a happy Monday? Well there is when the sun is out and the temperatures are wonderful...I so love this time of year! This time of year I can hardly wait to head off to the strawberry patches to pick strawberries for strawberry jam. Usually in june we can anticipate they are ready...last year was not a good year for strawberries, due to all the rain we had. But this year looks good so far!
With strawberries on my mind....and a challenge over at Papertake weekly asking for: shiny, sparkly and special, a card and a recipe was made! I used a Hanglar stamp along with one of my strawberries from magnolia to make this one! Lots of glitter too on the strawberry and flowers.

I just love finishing the inside of my cards...

Here is another recipe card made...I am so pleased to be getting these all done! Soon my recipe booklet will be complete. Lots of glitter on the strawberry and flowers! What would we do without glitter! Well I am off to get some things done. Have a wonderful day and thank-you so much for taking the time out of your day to come and visit!
Crafty Card Makers has a great challenge as well...Inside Out! They want to see the inside of your card finished too!

  22. Christine, your recipe cards have all been awesome and this one is no exception. I love this little girl on the strawberry and you always pick the neatest papers. So glad you're having great weather. Next week we'll be "up your way", but waaaay west of you. I'll give a shout anyway and if the skies are clear, maybe you'll hear it. LOL
