When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

I'm Jumpin' the Gun, or "Is it June yet?"

I'm yearning for strawberries, fresh strawberries from my garden. Dripping, sweet, juicy STRAWBERRIES. Oh dear, I think I have a looooong wait, so to make the time go faster I'll just pretend my House Mouse is harvesting my first crop for me. Really, tho, I've been very busy making pink cards for a Breast Cancer Awareness auction my friend in Australia holds every year. If I get an early start, maybe I can make two or three batches. I'd sure like to. So far I have 20 cards done with 10 more to go for this batch. So if I haven't been posting much lately, that's why. Spending all my effort on cutting, pasting, stamping - you get the drift. Anyhoo - here's my strawberry dream. The pie is a little QuicKutz die and of course I don't remember where the rest of the embellies came from. My bad!!

I found some strawberry brads and a strawberry charm to go with the strawberry dp. Could this be overkill? NOT!!! Now I'm thinkin' maybe a run to Marie Callendar's for a Strawberry Pie???
 Whipped cream, anyone?


  1. Glad you were ok. Just being busy, huh?.. yep,we are almost finishing the packet of strawberries, cuz I already craved for it before visiting your blog, and we got a packet of raspberries yesterday too!lol!! Luv berries! :-) Luv this card & the design! Never seen those brads. Now I want them!! lol ;-)

  2. This isn't just sweet, it's adorable. That little pie is soooo cute. I can't wait for strawberries and bought some today for a brunch tomorrow.

  3. This is soooo Adorable Sue..Loz

  4. Oh love all the pink. Poor little mousie has quite a load to carry, but the theme is adorable Sue!

  5. Well first of all I love your card - you have home grown strawberries - wow! You are such a dear for making so many cards for your friend. Will go to a very good cause. Overkill - I don't think so. I think with all your creativity you must be feeling pretty good!
