I made this card at the weekend using the Sketch Saturday challenge sketch. The image I'd stamped and coloured last week with no idea what I was going to do with it, I love the Sketch Saturday sketches, they always give you something wonderful and it gets the creative juices flowing.
Not only did I use a popcorn stamp, all the papers were from the Popcorn kids CD too - really falling in love with all the Crafters Companion products, but then I did get a whole load of them with some money I was given recently, so kind of have to make use of them to justify having spent so much. Anyway, I have to say I can highly recommend them if you are looking for another crafty purchase, they have just brought out a CD and set of stamps of The Snowman - haven't got these yet, but they have to be on the wish list!
I'm trying to get back into blogging after having a bit of a break (sorry about that, some horrible stuff going on at the moment that I can't talk about on here at the moment). Crafting is my release but sometimes the mojo disappears just when you need it the most, well mine does anyway.
Hope you like the card and I'll try and make it a more regular occurrence!

When Humphrey was released I had just been given some money to spend on whatever I wanted - no contest really, I bought all of the stamps and the CD, and for someone who hates decoupage, I have been having a great time cutting out and layering up these lovely images.
This one with the strawberries is so lovely I just had to have a play, now this was a quick play and probably not one of my best cards, but I have found out that what I like and what everyone else likes is not always the same thing, so I hope you all like it. I've just added some ribbon, used some freebie paper from a My Minds Eye stack from a magazine and used a Strawberry stamp that I just happened to have lying around. The bow on the ribbon I made using my bowmaker on the Ultimate Pro from crafters companion (love that bit of kit, especially with the new boxer and enveloper boards).
Anyway, I wanted to get this card online quickly as it fits in with the Just Tracy's Challenge this month, which is strawberries and cream, and the challenge is about to close (skin of my teeth time - thought it had already closed, note to self, be more organised next month!).
