Berry Sweet

Happy Monday! I can't believe it is the 1st of August already. Summer always goes by way to fast. It is still hot and dry here, 18 days of 90 degrees or higher temps but no complaints from me though. We never did get to go to Jackson State Park last week like we planned to because Rich did so many things with his brother and nephew while they were here he just wanted to stay home and relax after they left. We hope to still go when it cools off though.
Today Emilia and I started homeschooling again. This is our last year with Calvert because they only go up to 8th grade. We will only be doing school part time until after Labor day but I am glad we are getting started now because after looking over the curriculum it looks like it it is going to be even more challenging than last year. This has me a bit anxious but hopefully by easing our way into it slowly it won't be to much for us.
Today I want to share a card I made over the weekend. This is what I came up with

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits so when I saw this template I knew I had to have it. I started by cutting the base out of Stampers Select White Cardstock. After that I cut the front piece out of some paper from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Gertie paper pack. The leaves were cut out of patterned paper from this digi pack. I made the daisy using the smallest beautiful blooms II die then added a yellow button. I stamped the sentiment from the PTI Mini Berry Stamp Set on a tag from this cut file. Some black polka dot ribbon and machine stitching finishes it off.
Rich, Emilia and I went to Sweet Williams Market on Saturday and I got the Vintage Silver Flower Frog that I used to hold the card. I have been looking for something like this for awhile now and was thrilled to find it.
That's all for now. I hope your weeks is a great one and I will be back soon with more to share.
