Let's face it.....I don't want summer to end.  Anyone else out there with me?  I just love everything about it.  As my kids' baseball and softball seasons end soon, so does my sense of summer.  :(

So my card today shares a fun part of summer....all the fresh fruit that is so abundant.  I know some of you will be shocked.....and I am too about my next sentence.  I used to hate strawberries.'s true.  Maybe it was that I was forced to eat them as a child or it was my stupidity for not trying them again until I was an adult.  Well, now I LOVE them.  Guess it just took 30 years and some growing up to change my mind!  :)

I adore this strawberry die from Whimsy Stamps.  It is so detailed and makes for an easy card accent or focal piece.  To go along with the country feel, I made my own pierced background using the Stitched Border Dies from Whimsy Stamps.

I pieced together a sentiment from Sweet as Candy and paired it with the Sweet die all from Whimsy Stamps!  The Sweet die was cut from a Distress Ink watercolored piece of cardstock.


Since this week over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge it's "Anything Goes", I am going to link this up over there!

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

This is a fabulous card--I do love that Strawberry die and also the pierced background you made. I am right there with you on strawberries--didn't like them until I was about 25 years old. And, since then, can't get enough--probably making up for lost time.
