Last night I had the most wonderful dream. I was in a strawberry field picking berries and could smell the sweet scent of it all. Later, I found myself in the kitchen cooking up some strawberry jam. Next, I found myself waking up to the automated phone call from the school announcing a school delay. Bummer!
While I was outside shoveling, I came up with the idea of creating a card with the Tart & Tangy stamp set. I’m challenging myself with colors. Instead of using the obvious Real Red and Old Olive, I’m gonna try Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz. Here it is:
I used my versamarker to "wet" the bottom of each berry, then I added heat and stick powder and iridescent ice to resemble sugar. Kinda cute, I think. I'm gonna send this card to my hostesses.

While I was outside shoveling this morning, I saw the 'sign man' (that's the name Clarice uses for the crossing guard) drive away. I knew immediately that school had been cancelled. It's almost a miracle that I got this card completed today! It seemed all day like the kids were either eating or arguing. That's a day in my life.
