Happy Friday! Hope it is sunny and warm (but not too hot) where you are! I am slowly getting back into the swing of things after our time away!
The Quebec strawberries are ripe and plentiful at the moment so that meant that it was time to make my strawberry jam! I spent the afternoon hulling the strawberries that I bought from the farmer’s market and turning them into sweet yummy jam. Jam making is something I never did growing up. My Mum never made jam but a few years ago I decided to try it out and became instantly hooked on the whole process!
My first card today is for the Friday Sketchers Challenge which I am hosting this week by our generous monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp. My sketch is nice and simple and I hope you can find a little time to try it out!
I made my sketch a while ago but when it came time to create a card with it, I knew that I wanted to use this Sweet November mermaid and create an underwater scene. I used some vellum which I ran through my cuttlebug using this swirl embossing folder. I lightly sponged over top of it with some Bashful blue ink.

My second card is for the Wags ‘n Whiskers challenge which is to use stitching on your project. Mine is there…you just have to look hard for it! LOL! See the four little cross-stitches……that’s it ……although one is almost hidden by the elephant’s foot.
I LOVE, LOVE these new images by Emma Metcalf. They are sweet and lend themselves to some nice CAS cards. Here is mine:
