Hi Christine. Well the colouring on this is superb! Goodness knows what you threw in the bin.. I love the glossy strawberry too!
Been a bit muggy here today too.. Think it's going to rain overnight .. So no gardening for me.. Who knows, I may actually get a card made!

No Christine - it definitely isn't just you who ends up with a bin full of discarded attempts at perfection!!! Love your card - this one IS perfection! Those Strawberries look good enough to eat, and your colouring and layout are fab.
Hope the weather is better than expected over the weekend - have a good one, Hugs, Sylvia xxx
