Whilst chatting to the lady holding the samples she asked us if we enjoyed horse racing. Now I had to confess I have never been and she offered us guest tickets to Ladies Day at Goodwood races.
Glorious Goodwood is a big event here in the UK and Ladies Day took place last Thursday. Luckily I don't work Thursday but my Hb took a day's leave and off we went, dressed in our glad rags,
It happened to be the hottest day of the year as well, the sun shone from dawn to dusk. We had tickets to the Gordon's enclosure and there are no guesses as to the tipple sold there.
So my card for today...it has to be something which epitomises everything to do with the English Countryside....yes strawberries.
I made this one for a commission and it is sold but if you want something similar there is another in my Etsy shop here
I used my Magnolia Ink Tilda strawberry yummy stamp which I coloured with my Promarkers and highlighted with Prismacolor pencils.
Here she is in close up, you can see I added Glossy Accents to her strawberries to make them look more delicious.I made another of my Card Candi flowers and added a couple of Lili of the valley tags. Have you spotted my bird cage charm..they are great fun. I added some MS punched butterflies and there is a Cheery Lynn tropical florish in white providing a stem for my flower. A few gems finish off my card.
