For a Berry Special Friend


The slightest hint of crispness in the air, a schoolbus rumbling down the hill this morning, late summer's garden bounty ... Fall is on the way! Before I get knee-deep into all things Halloween and Christmas here on the bog, I just had to give summer a farewell with this sweet Strawberry Girl digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I printed onto Neenah card stock and colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The papers are from October Afternoon's Fly A Kite 8x8 pad. I stamped the sentiment (from Feelin' Fruity by My Favorite Things) onto a cloud that I die-cut with MFT's Cloud Trio Dienamics. Finished with the usual suspects -- sponging, twine, ribbon, stitching, a button....

Have a great week, friends!
