Thank You Berry Much....Inspired by All the Little Things #10~featuring Jinny Newlin

Hello,

Did you see the lovely inspiration photo and DT cards over at Inspired by All the Little Things #10~featuring Jinny Newlin?

I sure did...and out came a Clearly Besotted set that I bought, last year, to make cards (fund-raiser) for the annual Strawberry Tea held in the seniors' home where my mom volunteers. The tea is scheduled for mid-May, so this challenge is perfect timing for creating cards for the festivities. We're planning to head north that weekend, which means I'll have a chance (fingers crossed) to help my mom and her group of friends out this time!  Yayyyy...tea and strawberry shortcake! Sign me up!



(A wonky 'side view' photo...need to replace that once I'm back home!)
Break is over...best get back to work *grin*

Thank you for spending time with me today; your visit brings me immense joy!

A great take on your inspiration photo and it's amazing how you changed up each card - with the orientation of that pretty blue border and changing the swirly vine to a wreath. Love the tiny red berries. Good luck with the Strawberry Tea event! TFS

...strawberry shortcake you say? Need any more help at the tea? Yummy!

Totally 'sweet' cards! There is something so refreshing surrounding anything and everything strawberry! Love all the white space on your cards - makes the berries and the awesome blue/white panel pop!
