Hello sweet friend...

Hey there!
As I was enjoying some fresh strawberries from my mom's garden I was inspired to pull out the sweet strawberry stamps that are in my Hello Bluebird stash and ink up a fun card. There are great strawberry plants in both the Bee Happy and Strawberry Jam sets so I grabbed both to mix and match together. I also found this adorable mouse carrying a strawberry in the Field Mice set and I knew instantly that I had my main character right there. To help fill the scene with plenty of berries I used a Mirror Stamp to flip one of the larger strawberry plants in the Bee Happy set so that it faced into the center of the card. The fuzzy little caterpillar from the Strawberry Jam set was added to one of the berries to that my mouse had a friend to be looking at. Once the scene was all colored in, I used the Gallery Frame #3 die over top as well as a paper strip that included a small sentiment from the Forest Friends set. Now as I'm looking at the finished card, I'm starting to crave some strawberry jam on toast... LOL! 

Be sweet my friends!
