Sweet Strawberries - Sami Stamps Release

Happy Friday!
Woohoo!!  The weekend is finally here!  We may just get to go pick some blueberries this weekend.  Not sure yet, but I can hope.  There's nothing better than fresh picked blueberries, and I know it's something that Matthew loves since he used to work on his grandpas blueberry farm - the best one in Michigan!

But this post isn't about blueberries...it's about strawberries!  The next best fruit to have straight from the field, something I used to pick at my own home :)

Sami Stamps has a summer sweet release today that you don't want to miss!  We also start our new challenge for the month with the theme of Anything Goes!
For my first card, I used the adorable image Strawberry Nap.
Of course, I colored the sweet kitty like my baby girl, Cloud.  She's been feeling a little under the weather lately...something's wrong with her tail so we've been going easy around her, and giving her extra special care.  Still makes me feel helpless that I can't do more to make her feel better...so I incorporate her into my cards :)

I've colored everything up with my ShinHan and Copic markers and layered the image onto some light summery papers.  I kind of wish that the polka dot panel under my image was a little bit wider...but I didn't plan properly and it was already cut..so I went with it anyhow.
I stamped the sentiment onto a fun Spellbinders banner that my perfect husband bought me for my birthday, they are seriously the perfect banners for everything!  I've used them on almost every one of my cards this week..lol!  A few rhinestones and some ribbon flags finish of this sweet card.

I'd like to enter this Kitty card into the following challenges:
    Chocolate, Coffee & Cards #70-Polka Dots
    Creative Fingers #44-Anything Goes/Cute
    Let's Craft and Create #95-Ribbon or Twine

This next card features the Two Strawberries image and came together in the blink of an eye!
 I cut out the checkerboard background with my Silhouette and fell in love with it!  Probably one of my favorite backgrounds at the moment and will probably be using it a lot!

The rest of the card is pretty simple because I didn't want to take too much away from the fun background with the big juicy strawberries in the middle.  Just a simple die cut banner (again from my birthday gift :) ) and some gold thread wound behind the strawberries to give some extra sparkle.

Pretty simple, but I absolutely adore this card!!

I'd like to enter this Strawberry card into the following challenges:
    The Crazy Challenge #176-Die Cuts and/or Punches
    Ladybug Crafts-Clean and Simple
    Less is More #182-Anything Goes
    Simon Says Stamp-Anything Goes
