July CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Tonight I am joining some of my friends from the StampTV Center Stage team for a sketch challenge.  
You should have arrived at my blog from Linda Payne's awesome blog, if not you can go back to StampTV and start from the beginning.

 I created my card using the yummy Sweet Strawberries set from Theresa Momber.  The adorable print papers are from the GKD Berries and Vines paper pack.  The solid cardstocks are from the GKD Pure Luxury line.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (July 17), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

I won't keep you as there is more amazing creations for you to see, so head on over to Miesje Flach's wonderful blog for another bit of eye candy.
