Monday At The Cafe-Chocolate Strawberries

Happy Monday to you all.  I hope you all have been blessed with a great day and you're staying cool.  Mine has been pretty good so far and the days not over yet.  It's been super hot here in Texas though,  but we're all hanging in there.  Thank goodness for air conditioning.  When we lived in Oregon, all we had was a window unit and fans and yes, it does get hot in Oregon, or at least it did where we lived.  In July and August the temps could surpass the 100 degree mark but enough about that.  Let me get to today's post.

Today it's time for Monday At The Cafe and I've gone with a set that's been around for awhile, but it's such a great set that I just couldn't resist.  It's Fruit Greetings and it has the best images and sentiments.  I was inspired to use the strawberry because every time I walk into the supermarket these days, I'm confronted with rows of their yummy goodness.

This is a clean and simple design and I love the way it turned out.  I colored the image with my Copic markers and then covered it with Glossy Accents which gave it a very real feel.  I paired it with some chocolate paper because  who doesn't like chocolate and strawberries?  Both the image and sentiment are popped up with dimentionals to give it a little more depth.  Add the dotted ribbon and background (cuttlebug and swiss dot folder) and punched border (fiskars threading water punch) and voila!  A yummy card that sure to please!

I'm so glad to be getting back in the swing of things and to be posting again. It's been way too long.

Look for an awesome giveaway from The Cutting Cafe later on in the week.  Regina has been busy creating new sets and they are wonderful amazing.  I can't wait for you to see them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Becky
