Hi everyone and welcome to Jane's Journal if you are a first time visitor. Today I am starting another Guest Designer post and for July it will be for the relatively new but delightful challenge blog, Loves Rubberstamps. Laura is the owner of the website shop and the challenge blog and she is across the pond in the good old US of A. I was delighted when Laura contacted me and I nearly missed the email as my over zealous spam catcher on my email had deposited her email rudely in my spam folder. I am so glad that I happened to be checking for a missing link and found her lovely email there. Thanks you for having me ladies. This is my first GD spot with an American based card challenge.
So without further delay here is my first GD card for this week's challenge where the theme is anything goes.
here You will understand me being inspired by strawberries when you read the end of my post.
Here is a view of the inside step, on the left, where I have used a Memory Box flower die and a Marianne watering can (I used the wheelbarrow in the right step, see below). You will also spot my first use of my Lili of the Valley tags ;0)
Don't they look great.
Here is the inside of the right step.
I added buttons and bows from my stash and the papers are an Etsy download.
And here is a final view from the side.
Do pop over to the challenge here. It is an Anything Goes theme this week so everyone can join in. There is the chance to win a voucher for spending on some of Laura's goodies in her shop. I have my eye on a few new stamps. There is also a link to the shop on my side bar. You can also a peep at a recent photo of me, not something I often do here ;0)

As all my long term blogging buddies know I am very partial to strawberries (and mermaids) as summer images. It is also a very special week this week as it is final week of Wimbledon and this is where I was yesterday....
Yup, I was at Court Number 1 sipping Pimms and eating strawberries whilst I watched the tennis action. As I had to schedule this post for 5am so that it links in with the USA I did not have time to download my photos but I will be back to share them with you on Thursday.
Thanks as always for visiting me and for taking the time to leave your kind comments, it really means a lot. May I also extend a very warm welcome to my new followers too....anyone for tennis? ;0)
Bye for now,
