Fresh Strawberries

One of the delights of summer is the fresh fruit available like strawberries and my favourite ... raspberries ... Alas the latter are always quite expensive ...
This week at City Crafter the challenge theme is 
"Strawberry Farm"
picked for us by our lovely Kirsty

Kirsty is asking that we make a card or project that includes a strawberry

My project this week was really quick ... 


... A little basket of fresh strawberries ... A little treat to show my appreciation to my husband who has worked hard planting up the pots for the garden


The little basket was cut on my Cameo and I added a border edge and made a tiny banner from some gingham paper and twine


The tag was made using an image from the Graphics Fairy 
 This is the basket prior to adding the 
fruit - I just tucked in a little doily


A simple sweet little gift ...

This week at City Crafter we are fortunate to have the talented Linda Breedlove guesting for us ... Linda will be with us for another 2 weeks ... and I just know you will love her creations ... hop over to her blog and take a look ... She is seriously talented!
Our winner this week will also have a GD spot with us so come along and join us!

Thanks so much for stopping by ... Have a lovely day and stay safe

Oh LOVE this!! That basket design looks wonderful and the basket is as gorgeous unfilled as it is filled with these yummy looking strawberries. Love that pretty little gingham banner too. Great little project!!

Barbara said...

Oh, yummy! Very cute basket and your husband must have felt very much appreciated!

Wow, Ros... I didn't know you could make a basket using a cameo... I love this! The banner is adorable on it, and the border piece adds just a bit of texture... perfect! This could be used for all sorts of gifts... hummm... candy would be great in there. LOVE this project, my friend.
I think we have our server problem fixed, but we've had really bad storms for several days and keep losing power. Hopefully I can get caught up with everyone tonight!
Have a happy Tuesday!
