Strawberry Cherries

Can you believe that it is Friday already? It is a quite dreary Friday too the sun seems to have gone and it is very overcast here in London.

Hey Ho I’m keeping Summer going with this card for the Whiff of Joy Blog Hop Call. Katharina is launching some new stamps on the 25th July and she is looking for volunteers to take part in a blog hop – Wahoo what fun. You have til the 8th July to throw your name into the mix with this lovely and unusual sketch.

Details: I’ve used Willow with Strawberry Basket from the Summer 2009 kit, coloured with copics and promarkers and matched her up with HOTP papers. I’ve backed her with vellum and made a vellum lace border. The handmade embellishments are made from felt, jute ribbon from Quixotic Paperie and buttons. The card is finished with some hand-stitching ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you have a lovely day and that the sun is shining where you are (unless it is night of course!).
