Strawberry and Snippets

Good morning everybody,

First I'd like to introduce my latest follower to you.  Many of you will know Gerrina.  She does make some beautiful cards so do drop in for a visit.

My card today was made last week using a couple of card templates.

I made a similar card at a crafty day out a few of weeks ago.  It really was just cutting around both templates and embossing half of the strawberry to make a very quick card.

I used odd bits and pieces for decoration so am taking this card over to join in at Pixies Snippets Playground Week - 250 and also the
 Craft Rocket Challenge #25 which this time is Ribbon/and or Lace

I'm really busy making a special parchment card at the moment which I must finish today so I apologise that I've not managed to visit anybody over the past couple of days.  I promise I'll be round to see what you've been making as soon as I can.
