From Courtney's Closet Challenge # 18

I had some time on Saturday night to play along with Libby's FCCC #18. Here is the card I made.The red carstock and gingham paper are both from Creative Memories several years ago. I used my CM small heart maker to punch out the heart-shaped strawberries, then used a black pen to draw in "seeds." I just freehand-cut the stems or leaves or whatever you call the green part of the strawberry. I used a Stampin' Up stamp (background basics or one of the others) to stamp tiny hearts and dots in Versamark on the cardstock. It needed a little something else, so I added the 3 white flowers. Here's Courtney's outfit.

The bottom of her dress has strawberries on it. This is only the second week I have gotten to participate in the challenge, but when Anthony (age 2 1/2) looks at my blog and sees her, he says, "Courtney?" to which I say, "Yes, that's Courtney." How sweet is that! I hope yall have a great day!

I really like the strawberries made from hearts - very clever! It looks just like a summer picnic on the gingham and with the flowers :)
