We are a long way from strawberry season here but it is nice to think about! Somewhere under all that snow those little berry plants are sleeping away. So in the meantime I will make a few sweet berry cards to be ready for spring birthdays!
Jen Brum's sketch is full of possibilities! Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

My cousin's birthday is next week so I decided to "send her flowers" for the occasion. But then I received some more of those snarky swaps in the mail and I am now leaning toward the snark side!
Enjoy these sentiments - I did! (And if I weren't such a lazy bones I would photograph the cards for you to enjoy as well!)
I'm starting meetings at my house for people who have OCD......I don't have it. I'm just hoping they'll take a look around and start cleaning.
This card was made by hand....If you throw it away those same hands will make a doll in your image and stick pins in its butt!
My exercise routine consists of doing diddly squats......Hope you are having a more active day! Happy Birthday!
I am very good at doing diddly squats! That might be the birthday card to send instead!
This specialty designer paper has a beautiful shine on the pattern!
I combined the sketch and the photo for Fusion this week! Hope you join us!

The Design Team at CAS(E) This Sketch led by Chrissy Larsen has provided some amazing inspiration these past few years. The sketches were always innovative and inspiring leading to oh so creative designs. And some sketches were down right head scratching and made you dig deep for a creative interpretation. I have looked forward to the DT designs every Thursday. They will be ending their wonderful run soon and will be missed!

Whether it is hot chocolate or chocolate cookies or chocolate doughnuts I am all in! If chocolate keeps you going during this crazy time I say go for it!
I joined in a "snarky" swap this month and I am just starting to receive some of the cards and they are making me laugh out loud. This is the card I mailed to 12 snarky friends.
And here is the inside.....

Cold days and hot cocoa are definitely part of my world these days! I am sitting by the fire as I type having a cup right now! My Christmas tree is still up and twinkling. I have always put my house "back together" on New Year's Day but I just couldn't this year. I need another week or two of its sparkly charm. With all of the craziness happening in the world today a full grown tree still in my living room decorated with lights, beads and ornaments doesn't seem crazy at all!
My favorite way to play at Fusion is to combine the sketch and the photo. Hope you join us!

Feel free to replace the word coffee with whatever gets you through the day! Crafting, Diet Coke and napping work well for me these days - followed by tea, supper and watching BritBox. Anyone else a fan of British TV? The Big Guy is not a fan.....says he can't possibly follow programs that are not in English.....sigh....I am presently in the midst of Lark Rise to Candleford without leaving the comfort of my den! And the Big Guy? Well he is in the living room enjoying his new subscription to Peacock and watching ski racing from Austria............
And part of my New Year's crafting resolutions is that I will create two cards for each challenge I do - I need to replenish my stash!
I love Jen Mitchell's slim line design! I made two mini slim cards that measure 6 by 3 1/2 Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!
