You're sweeter than strawberries!!

Hello everybody,
I hope you are staying warm,
and Aussies, I hope you are staying cool.
I have a card to share with you.

Information on the joy-fold card is
toward the bottom of this post,
I've used this darling hAnglar image
coloured with distress inks,
along with some fun new-to-me
DCWV Farmers Market papers,
my new toy, the sewing machine, haha,
I had a breakthrough today ladies,
next time I use it, I think the results
will be a little less wiggly,
gotta ease off the throddle, hahahaha,
a Penny Black sentiment,
the Martha Stewart doily punch
and lace ribbon and cherry blossoms.

This is a definite change of pace,
bright bold colours and patterns,
I think I am trying to warm up mentally
because I can't physically or something!!

I have a few challenges that I'll enter this in:
ABC Challenges is up to L,
L is for layering, you know it!!
Cute Card Thursday
is hosting a NEW challenge,
and I went with new-to-me stash
for my "new" requirements,
Dutch Dare Card Challenges
was my inspiration,
they are hosting a Joy fold card challenge,
and have a tutorial included in the posting,
thank you ladies, I enjoyed this lots and lots!!
I had a lot of fun looking at all of the
DT works at these challenges, fab stuff,
I think a lot of us are whipping out
bright and bold papers and embellies, lol.

I hope you all have a wonderful week,
get some crafting done,
visit lots of fellow bloggers,
waffle waffle waffle, with ME, lol!!
Take Care,

I love, love, LOVE it! I think this one is destined for my mail box, lol. I soooo want that strawberry paper, and the blossoms are perfect, and the stamp and colouring are amazing! I really love everything about this card, it has a very summer feel to it. I have never seen a joy fold card before, this will definitly have to go on my 'things to try' list, Did I mention i love it :)
