Too Much of A Good Thing Is Wonderful!

Good Morning!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekends so far! I am back today with a thank you, a card and a little giveaway! First up is a Thank you for the Ribbon Girls Challenge Blog who have picked me for their top 3 in the latest Card Challenge with Wednesday's Creative Inspirations Card! Woopeee! Thank you so much girlies :)


Today's card is something I had made as I wanted to make something for the latest Simon Says Stamp Challenge! I have had this gorgeous Strawberry Stamp for ages (it came with an old issue of Craft Stamper) and thought it would fit the challenge perfectly! I have used my Distress Markers to colour them in.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
SIMON SAYS STAMP - LET'S GET FRUITY!




As you can see in this photo the light is reflecting off the gloss on the strawberries! I added it to make them look extra juicy!

PB T-Set - Allegro'
PB 'Letter Background' Stamp
Strawberry Stamp from an old issue of Craft Stamper
