Strawberries Say Summer

Strawberries Say Summer

Summertime Fun is this month’s theme for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party. In my mind, summertime begins with strawberries from Hoogstraten and I was lucky enough to be in Belgium to taste the first strawberries of the season this year. And it sure was fun to eat them!

I stamped the strawberry image multiple times with Crumb Cake ink on pink card stock to make the background for my sweet birthday card. The dots of the Vintage Labels 18 stamp reminded me of strawberries, which is why I used that particular frame.

Thanks for stopping by!
