Let's pick Sweet Strawberries!







I am sure you can all relate to wanting to craft...but being too tired to craft, but giving it a whirl anyway...Either it works out wonderfully...or it can be a comedy of errors.  In this case the project came together sweetly...but gosh...taking pics on a windy day is no fun. I was trying to keep the background paper in place without "losing my strawberries" LOL.  In fact one of my poor strawberries flew up in the air and blew away-it was that windy.  Good grief ---I never did find it. Luckily my daughter stopped by for a quick visit and helped me hold things down...sorry I had to crop out her designer nails from the pictures, but they were pretty!

Today I am showing off this Sweet Strawberry Thinlet Die Set designed by Lori Whitlock from Inspiration Emporium (she also designed the bushel basket I cut with my Silhouette.) So this project actually turned into a Lori Whitlock lovefest. 

This would make such a nice  quick and easy gift to give...it really was very fast!









I thought it was easier to put the brad in all the petals but one and then just tuck in the last petal after sticking the candy treat inside. Worked just dandy!

You always blow me away! Honestly didn't mean for that to be punny, but realized what I'd said after I said it. I'm sorry you lost one of your strawberries. It was horribly windy here for a few days, too. Anyway, this is amazingly cute! You always get it just right. Really, you have the BEST projects! Yes, I can relate to wanting to craft but being too tired. Sheesh, I'm tired of being tired, but I hope that will change soon.

Oh my goodness, you are too funny! But no matter the circumstance, they photographed gorgeously. I've made these type strawberries before, and they really are a great little gift.
