Remembering the days....

...of little Strawberry Shortcake! My daughter used to collect these figures and when I saw these little cuties I new I had to colour her up. I googled the colouring book section on Strawberry Shortcake and tones of colouring pages came up...but this one stole my heart!






Things have been so busy around the Dol house that not alot of crafting has been going on. With summer days upon us here ( officially on June 21st) I love being outside and that does not allow alot of time to craft. I appreciate your visits here as I know things are probaly just as busy at your home! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Fathers Day!

The dp is gorgeous with the bright twist of lime and the swirls and bow are such pretty embellishments! Enjoy the sunshine whilst you can ...

    Beautiful job. Love the card.
    I have several strawberry plants, but haven't even harvested one single strawberry this year. Weather's been so lousy.

  19. Christine! Oh does this bring back memories. I even had a lunch box with Strawberry Shortcake on it. She was one of my favs along with Snoopy, who btw still is my favorite!!! What a wonderful card!!! So special! The other day I saw the CUTEST Precious Moments color book and wondered why they weren't making stamps with the images, I guess the copyright is too expensive or something. Anyhow, thanks for bringing me down memory lane!
    Hugs, Dena

  24. Strawberry Shortcake! Now, that takes me back! That was one of my favorite doll when I was a kid. I found some Strawberry Shortcake-scented hand cream at the Sephora store and it smells just like the doll! I love your coloring on this image, BTW :)

    I'm so glad Emily pointed us to your blog - you have some amazing creations on it! Your coloring is awesome!

    TFS!
