Makes you think of Wimbleton, really, rather than the Olympics! (Go Layton!) However, if I want strawberries now I have to get imported ones or frozen ones, so I go without but I can get the lollies called Strawberry and Cream, and they are almost as delicious if not as good for you!
This fortnight at the Lollipop Ladies

My contribution to this challenge is below:
The photo was taken at night under lamplight so the colours are strange! It is SU Blushing Bride and some spare cream paper from the stash. A white commercial blank and some embossing folders The cupcake and sentiment comes from Verve. The strawberries are metal ones, from Leisure Arts Collection, sprayed with Copic pens (using the airbrush system). Some paper piecing for the icing on the cake and some bling also coloured with Copics.
A close up of the little strawberries. I will tell you a funny story! I got these several years ago and found them recently. I thought I would have a go at spraying them and did so - they looked great! Then I realised that I had sprayed them IN THEIR PACKAGING!! How dumb is that! Of course, I had to spray them again once I had wrangled them out of the packaging!
The card was inspired by this - my eldest granddaughter's birthday gift to me - made by her own sweet hand! Had to show you!
