You are My Favorite! -- for SheepSki Designs

August 1st.  This summer is going so fast!  August 1st also means it's the start of a new challenge at SheepSki Designs Challenge Blog.  The theme of this month's challenge is:  "My Favorite Things".

When I think of my favorite things, many things come to mind, but I might just have been hungry when figuring out my make for the challenge, because here's what I came up with:

I love strawberries!  I especially love when it's strawberry season here in Wisconsin and I can get them fresh out of the patch.  They are one of my favorite things!

This image is Strawberry Season (image #33), and I absolutely love it!  It was also a great image to practice those berry skills on.  I haven't worked on my "shine" for awhile, and I wanted them to look good enough to eat -- mouth watering!

I colored Strawberry Season with Copic markers.  I used a die from Spellbinders Paper Arts to cut it out.  The strawberry designer paper is a long retired piece from Close To My Heart, as is the paper on the tag.  It is now almost gone.  I need a new source of strawberry paper!  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The sentiment is computer generated.

I hope you can join us this month at SheepSki Designs for our "My Favorite Things" challenge.  Andrea has some gorgeous images to color up.  Check them out in the SheepSki Designs Etsy store
