thank you berry much - Aud Sentiments #178

Thursday April 20-May 1, 2017
April is almost over and days are longer
(I hope they get rid of day-light savings time)
I have my usual three day Ladies Retreat to Cannon Beach (which is in Oregon) I live a couple hours away. It's next week.. It's a beautiful time. It's through my church and I always go with my best friend Karen.. It's a spiritual, crying, snacking, singing, hugging, snacking, learning, eating, lessons, walks on the beach, shopping, praying, snacking ladies fun time. I always come back refreshed.
Very blessed time.
Well on to the new challenge at Aud Sentiments #178
Our sponsor is Inspired by Stamping

I am using Stamp Rosa House Mouse.. I love this mouse.  I can identify with eating strawberries and feeling so full.  Hay - how do you eat your strawberries?  If they are fresh and just eating I make up some sour cream and add brown sugar and stir it together and then swipe my strawberry through it and eat.. YUMMM. so good.  I love strawberries on waffles.. In smoothies (I usually use frozen ones for smoothies)..   Ok back to my card. I colored my card with copics. I then took My Favorite Things embossing edges and embossed the white, red and kraft edges. I love the look it gives. I then added some twine to the left side and an old button I had.  I left it off for a while and kept looking at the card and it just needed something. I tried different buttons and my hubby and I settled on this one. Oh and the rubber/clear stamp is Paper Trey Ink "green thumb" stamp. It's perfect for the image. Its a hand deliver card.. button is thick. 
I hope you like my card and get inspired. Please see the DT's cards to get more inspiration.
Thank you.. And Thank you for all the nice complements on my card over the years. It really inspires me as I make my cards.  Hugs everyone.
