time flies again

wow, I know it's been ages, and when I see the date of my last post, I feel guilty. I can guarantee that I'm not going to get much posted this week, since it's one of the craziest weeks at work ever, but now that I'm pretty much in one location, I'll try my best to contribute more.
One of my ways of trying to help, is finding another use for the ornament punch in the new SU! mini catalog. sure, it's easy to find a use for it during the holidays, but to make it worth purchasing, it has to have some other uses. I've seen some great ideas from other people, using it as a fish, acorn and vase, but when I saw it, I immediately saw strawberry! yeah, I know, we're looking into that weird brain. Anyway, I thought it would make a great strawberry, so I did this card for Patty Bennett's stamparama event just a couple of weeks ago. I also incorporated a few of the SU! exclusive sizzix dies, scallop square and lattice. I added smaller strawberries on the lattice using the small oval (cut in half) and one of the flowers from the boho blossoms punch. the 5 petal punch was used on the big strawberry foliage, as well as a flower from the pretties kit and a summer sun corduroy button. of course I had to top it all off by spritzing it with shimmer paint. It sure adds a lot to a card. thanks for being patient with me!
