Strawberry festival time!

Hi again!

 Cardmaking, for me,  is a funny thing.
Some days I work forever on a card ...

just. one. card!

And I look back at it and think you have got to be kidding!

And then there are other times an idea pops into my head
 and I crank it out superfly quick,
 faster than my eyeballs can gather all the supplies
 and my hands can get it together!

Today's card is the latter :)

Florida has an AMAZING strawberry festival
  right smack dab in the middle of our state. 
 It's filled with a fair with rides, booths with strawberry goodies of every kind, concerts, a rodeo and petting zoo, a large open air market to shop 
and so much more! 
We haven't gone in years but we have such fond memories 
and would bring back bushels full of strawberries! 

Bunny Love from Altenew is such a sweet spring stamp set
and fun to bring out at Easter time!
I used hues of red white and a pop of blue ~
the red gingham was a nod towards the farmers markets.
 I created this card with the Challenge Your Stash card group 
where we were to create a card with a bunny on it.
There so many cute bunnies on this one to chose from!


What's your favorite way to have strawberries?
I love them sliced and tossed into my salads,
smothered in chocolate,
even skewered and added quickly to the grill with my summer veggies!

Thanks for your visit today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

  5. Such a delightful card Kelly! That little bunny combined with the gingham is adorable!

  6. Your card is ADORABLE! I LOVE the gingham background and that sweet Bunny! I also have the same problem as you when creating a card - Sometimes it takes me FOREVER! and then I look at it completed and go REALLY? that long for that? YIKES! Then other times it just pours right out of me... Weird how that works! At least I know I'm not alone in that! :) I love strawberry shortcake - which we just had the other night... I also love strawberry smoothies & ice cream...
    We don't have a fun Strawberry festival like you do, instead we have a Peach festival - Every year like clockwork right before School starts up... It's a huge event where people from all over come to check it out - Of course it doesn't hurt that we live near Zions National Park! hahahaha


  7. Oh Kelly, you have me longing for November when we get our first straw berries - but we have winter to get through first... What a beautiful card! Love the gingham paper

  8. Oh, what a sweet and lovely card ! I love strawberries ! Enny

  12. Adorable sweet bunny Kelly..love your patterend papers and colours and lovely design..I'm with you too..I can whip out detailed hand coloured cards, just like that, or I can ponder, change my mind, straighten it, bend it, add flowers, take them off..then go lie down and think about it..lol..
