Love You Berry Much!

Hi Peeps!
Love You Berry Much
Happy Friday!!  Just popping in to share the card I made for the CARDS Magazine blog challenge.  This week, we were challenged to create something using berries.  Big, fat berries.  I used three different Papertrey Ink sets, none of which had ever been inked up before today.  Is that bad?  Yeah, that’s bad.  So thank you, Paige, for the inspiration and challenge to finally ink up some very neglected stamps!!  The leaves and vine image is from the Turning A New Leaf set; the berries are from the Green Thumb set, and the sentiment is from the My Punny Valentine.  Cute, huh?

STAMPS:  Turning A New Leaf, Green Thumb and My Punny Valentine (Papertrey Ink)
INK:  Spring Moss and Berry Sorbet (Papertrey Ink)
PAPER:  White CS (Neenah), Sweet Blush CS (PTI), Polka Dot Parade DP (PTI), Berry Sorbet CS (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Janome Sew Mini, Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Spring Moss Saddle Stitch Ribbon (PTI), Berry Sorbet Button (PTI), Embroidery Floss

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?  Me?  I’m going shoe shopping today, and maybe going out to lunch with my BFF.  Can you say Cheesecake Factory?  Yummmy!!!  Saturday involves a hang-out sesh with my sister at the BINGO parlor.  Oh yeah!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

You are making some super cute cards (as always), my friend. At least you are able to take advantage of the crappy weather by stamping. Do I dare say it is supposed to be 100 here today?!

Lucky for you that you had those cute PTI Strawberries in your stash, perf for the challenge..You rocked it!

This card is so awesome and perfect for the beginning of summer!!! I LOVE it!!!!! Perhaps it will get picked up by CARDS?! I hope so!!!!!

So, the bingo parlor this weekend, huh?! LOL! Have fun! ;)
I surprised my sister this weekend and my cousin and I came down to visit her! Her DC friends are having a wedding shower for her, and we came down to help her celebrate! Fun fun weekend ahead of us!
(In case you wanted to know what I was doing this weekend! LMBO!)

Whoa, I could totally see this gracing the pages of Paper Craft, it is gorgeous Karolyn and thank you so much for always reminding me of the CARDS challenges. I really want to participate in those. Shoe shopping sounds like HEAVEN on EARTH...... I should so be doing that vs. packing up and trying to create a craft kit for myself. Oh WAIT, I'm NOT, I'm sitting at the computer thinking about what I SHOULD be doing. Sure home the cafe' kicks in soon.
