Creating warm happiness

It is Thursday, just one more day and the weekend is here!  I love my weekends, except my son has practice tomorrow from 7-9 pm and then we have to be back at the field Saturday morning at 9 am.  Did I mention it takes around 40 minutes to get him to the ball fields?  Looks like my down days will be reduced to Sunday's.  Sorry for whining, the season is just beginning and we don't have our groove yet, all will be well in a few weeks.
Onto my card today.  I am so ready for warm weather, Florida is having an extra cold winter.  I'm talking 30's in the morning.  So I am bringing myself some warm happiness and thoughts of spring and summer.   I reached for the Berry Good Life stamp set from Unity.  I don't know what says warm weather more than a basket of strawberries.  There is a place in my hometown (in California), where there is a strawberry patch right next to the grape vineyards.  They are the best strawberries I have ever had.  Anyhow, I stamped and colored in my image with Copic markers, then cut an embossed the card stock using a Spellbinders die.  The pattern paper is from the Dear Lizzy line by American Crafts.


I typically do not show the insides of my cards, but since its extra cute, here is a picture.
The yellow pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket
