Strawberry Jam


I created this card for the Penny Black Challenge and the Ways To Use it challenge on SCS. Both were to use buttons. I love this image. When I was a little girl my mom would pick strawberries and we would make frozen strawberry jam. The entire house would smell of cooking strawberries. Such a great memory.

Want to join the Penny Black Saturday Challenge check it out HERE.

I am off to a strawberry patch field trip with my son. I guess that is what got me in the mood to make a strawberry card. Have a great day....

  15. Hi Dawn, I love your card, that's such a sweet image, another for my wish list. Gorgeous design, the strawberry background is perfect and your colouring is wonderful. I really wish I was going strawberry picking with you, I used to take my boys to do that when they were young, it was a lot of fun. Hope you're well and that you have a great weekend. Hugs, Chris

  19. Hi Dawn

    Thank you so very much for the lovely comments you left on my blog. They were very much appreciated.

    You have some beautiful creations on your blog too. I can see you probably love Penny Black as much as I do!!!

    They are by far my most favourite stamps and I have to steer myself away from them otherwise I am just too predictable.

    No-doubt see you tomorrow over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

    Take care

    Love Jules xx
