When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Crafty Boots - Food, glorious Food!

Good morning one and all!

Well today sees the next challenge launch over at Crafty Boots so I suggest you go and have a look at the fabulous DT projects and hopefully you'll be inspired to join in!

When I saw the theme was Food, I just knew I wanted to get my Strawberry Kisses stamps out.

Here's the card

I printed out the card companion from the Strawberry Kisses cd rom, then stamped the wonderful image of Pup with his strawberry sundae on to super smooth card. I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir pens, and then used the Spray & Shine to add the shiny finish to the glass (I created a mask to spray through). I added Glossy accents and other glaze to the strawberries etc.  I also stamped the Yum sentiment and coloured it to match. Then I had great fun arranging the tumbling strawberries and, of course, I added buttons from my ever growing collection!

I really enjoyed making this card, and for those of you who visited me during WOYWW a couple of weeks ago, you may remember I had hidden an image from you all that was going to create a DT project, well this is it!

Take care & enjoy your day.
