Sweet Thrifty Wishes

Some fun new goodies made their way to my mailbox this week - so excited to get the new October Afternoon 8x8 pads! Today I've used a mixture of both Thrift Shop and Fly A Kite. Love these!! I think my very favorite pattern is the one I used in the background for today's card. Such a sweet, homey look.

The yummalicious strawberry image and sentiment are from Sweet Chocolate by My Cute Stamps. I stamped the strawberry twice in VersaMagic Jumbo Java and clear embossed to give the chocolate-covered part a shiny look. The rest is colored with Copics, trimmed and popped up. Some of the fun accents include: some brown burlap string with a red button, Pewter Kaiser pearls, cream ruffle edge trim, and two brown & white checker ribbon tabs. Card stocks are Prsimatics Brown Suede (Dark) and Blush Red (Medium) and Papertrey Ripe Avocado.

I *love* Jen's Sketch For You To Try that I used for today's card:
