Spring Has Sprung

Good morning! Well, Spring has indeed sprung! Well, it's sprung over at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog, at least. It's bright and beautiful here in mid Missouri, but it's a cold 33 degrees, and it's even supposed to snow this afternoon. :-( One sure sign of Spring for me is when the stores start putting plants out, and yes, I've seen plants, AND strawberry plants at that! Oh how I love those strawberries, so that's where my card took me for today's challenge. Our gracious sponsor at The Crafty Pad Designs gave the Kaboodle Doodles team some wonderful images to work with, and I loved coloring these strawberries!
Of course, I colored them with my Copic markers, and the paper actually comes from a Stampin' Up! Halloween pack.  The green stripes looked so pretty with the strawberries, so Halloween or not, I used it.  I'm doing my best to use up all those scraps I have.  I kept this pretty simple and only used some old olive grosgrain ribbon for embellishment.  The sentiment comes from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set from The Greeting Farm.

I hope you can play along with the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge this week.  Once lucky winner will receive two free digital stamps from The Crafty Pad Designs Store, just for playing along!  Thanks for stopping by!!  Have a blessed day and happy stamping!
