Hello, sweet friends! What a busy day it's been. I have two cards for you - one is this card for the latest remixed digital images - Juicy Strawberries. I absolutely love strawberries and have them on my cereal every day. So this was a fun card to color up these strawberries, and I fussed over what layout (what else is new for me - haha!). But I used one of the pretty Spellbinders borders and used it on top and bottom, inspired by one of the beautiful cards my DH gave me this Christmas. It has a pretty border like this with beautiful sparkly DP underneath. I used a more "country" DP for this image, and I even used sequins. I always love seeing them on other cards but just don't seem to feel they are right with my cards. What do you think? Well, they are there to stay with the glue I used - haha!
My DH has had three Supartz shots in his knee, and we'll see how he does after the fifth and last one. I know he is hoping to delay knee surgery, but time will tell. But I think he is seeing some improvement. As for me, I take it a day at a time. Some days a good and others - well, I sit and color!! Thanks for your continued prayers for my DH and me.
Well, my sweet friends, thanks for taking a closer look at my card, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. Happy Monday!
Stop by my blog for more details and to see both cards and the new digis. (Hint: One is irresistible to anyone who loves to color, no matter whether it's a card or a coloring book - wink!)

Magnificent Cheryl - I am in envy of your colouring skills. I love the die you used for your image and the glorious designer paper is perfectly matched. A delightful card my friend. Hope all goes well for you and your hubby - I am wincing thinking of those shots - poor man ! Do take care ... hugs, Kia
Cheryl, this is so pretty and refreshing with the strawberries. I really like how you die the die, off the card. Even that check is a little different with the xes. You did a lovely job with the layout and I am Faving it. TFS

This is just lovely! The image is colored so beautifully, and the borders are wonderful! The sequins look wonderful, but I understand - I feel the same way about bows. Love them on everyone else's cards, but think they look plain ridiculous on mine.

I don't have tge time I used to have for gallery gazing, and sometimes I just take a peek when I get home earlier than usual from work...boy did I hit the jackpot today. Two gorgeous Cheryl cards. This is just my taste...I love strawberries, both to eat and to color. Mixed with that terrific layout and die cut, and the awesome green dp, this is a treat for the eyes. Pinned and faved.
