Strawberry Summer


For me, strawberries are the ultimate summer fruit.  Even though we can buy them virtually all year round now, they still taste better eaten in summer (hopefully with sunshine), with cream.  Or in champagne :-)

I was lucky enough to go to Wimbledon a couple of years ago, and I told my husband in no uncertain terms that I would be having my Pimms and I would be having my strawberries, regardless of cost!  I got both (of course) and was pleased that the prices were reasonable (so was he!  Pleased, I mean.  Although he is also reasonable.  Usually.)

This week's challenge at One Layer Wednesday hosted by Cheryl is summer, and the challenge at CASology is fruit.  Summer + fruit = strawberries.



The strawberry stamp is PSX.  I tried colouring the stamp directly but it just didn't look right. It looks stronger and much more dramatic stamped in black and coloured in.  Enjoy stamp is Hero Arts.
