Time for food.

       It has been an absolutely gorgeous day here in Florida. I decided to emboss a lot of backgrounds this morning and spend the afternoon on the porch adding color to them. Such a relaxing time listening to the birds and watching the wild turkeys in the pasture. The Sandhill Crane is on her nest again. I hope the baby survives this year. Her nest is right in the middle of the pond. I don't think a fox will venture out to it. We've had more rain this spring so they are a little more protected. Such an enjoyable day and now we will be off to my mothers to see my Sister and her husband who are visiting from Ohio.
        So with one of my backgrounds I put together a card for the challenge at Speedy the Cats Friends. Use food was the theme. I embossed the strawberries from Flourishes with Gold EP and colored them in with distressed inks and a water brush. Then sponged around the image and cut out with a Nestabilities oval. The background was stamped with Versa Mark. Embossed with Gold EP and sponged with distressed inks.

Martha Stewart punch border laced with gold ribbon and edged with gold ink finish it off.
