Hugs & Wishes...

Hi there!
Happy Sunday to you!  It's one gorgeous day here!  It's a perfect day in the 70's.  It reminds me of the wonderful weather we had thirty-five years ago.  Yes, today is our 35th wedding anniversary!  This afternoon my sweet husband will take me out to a delicious dinner.  And, I will thank him for putting up with me for this many!;-)
Anyways, about my card today, I'm entering this card over at City Crafter Challenge.  What a sweet inspirational photo with all those yummy fruits!  I was inspired to make a card with strawberries, which are in season right now and so delicious!  As you can see, my card is fairly simple.  I was going to fussy cut the stems and paper piece, but it was very tedious.  So, I went with the twine, which resulted with fab dimension. Gingham and polka dot washi tape for interest along with a tad bit of sewing.
Ok, dear friends, thanks so much for viewing my card today!  Take care!
