Thank You Berry Much! Sweet Strawberry Card! And an Update!!

WoW! I have missed crafting so much! Some of you may know that I am an avid runner and have recently taken on a volunteer assistant cross country coach position at the local middle school. The commitment is 4 nights a week and 1 early morning. So during this season I am spreading my time thin! But I wouldn't have it any other way! I know that all my blogging friends understand the tough balance between real life and blogging life. I also hope everyone knows how much I miss visiting and seeing what is going on, but I am confident I will soon find a routine that works for me so I can fit it all in! I hope to visit soon! Thanks for understanding! ~Carri

It has taken me just over 1 week to make this card!

Strawberry is from Indie Art Cricut Cartridge
All papers are from K and Co Mat Pad
Distressed edges, Tim Holtz Walnut Stain
Liquid Pearls
Gem Brads
Ribbon from Joanns
