A 'fruitful' birthday



As you can tell, I LOVE this Strawberry set from 'Flourishes', so there was no contest when it came to deciding what to stamp up for my friend Sandra's birthday!
Coloured with my faithful Copics, with SU paper matted onto Bazzil CS.
The edge was create with my Fiskars Threading Water Punch.

Pam and I joined our other Derbyshire friends at Sandra's house yesterday for a wonderful afternoon garden party.
Food and drink in abundance and wonderful company. Brilliant!
(We didn't get home until VERY late).
Thanks for a brilliant day Sandra!

I'll be back later hopefully, with another challenge card, (if I get time).
If not, stop by tomorrow for my next Peachy Keen challenge card. ;0)

Have a super Monday! Viv xx

Oh, there are those fabulous strawberries again. That is such a lovely stamp and as always, your coloring is perfection. Love the soft blue background, did you airbrush that in? I am sure Sandra will love this card.

Hi Viv, I am so lucky to have such lovely friends I had a brilliant day,and I love my card, my son couldn't believe it was hand coloured, he thought it was printed, so that just shows how good you are. Thank you my friend :)
