Berry Sweet

Yup that is exactly how I feel about this card today...



I want to thank everyone for the kind words and prayers. Our car was fixed yesterday and I am very thankful that that was the only damage we had during the storms. My Husband and I went out Tuesday and worked with the red cross delivering food to the areas hardest hit by the storms. The areas were hit so bad.. it actually look like a scene out of a movie. Our area is not used to Tornado's like this we are more prepared for a Hurricane than a tornado so this was unexpected... We were lucky because there were no deaths during this storm. And this really was luck because of the time of day it hit... most people were at work, in school or getting off work. But enough about the storms lets get back to the card....

Last night this hit me after browsing around a few blogs.. My DH didn't like that I stayed up to finish it... but oh well. This designs is the CPS62 sketch of the week.

I colored the House Mouse image in with my copic markers... isn't he so cute with his belly full of strawberries. After coloring my image in I used my newest set of nestiablities, megabilities dies to cut him out and then I also cut a scalloped mat out. I embossed each edge with these dies too. I place a piece of papertrey inc ribbon along the bottom edge and attached a tag to it that says You're Berry Sweet... My Background paper was stamped with Papertrey's anniversary set... I got it for buying 12 unique sets last year and guess what you can get a free set in Feb 2009 just by buying 12 unique sets this year. Well I'm off to get somethings done today... hope everyone has a great afternoon...
