Now that's a strawberry stamp!

Hello everyone! I recently saw a new strawberry stamp set soon to be released from a popular co. , and was tempted to give in and buy it. But I am trying to wean myself away from purchasing more stamps that I don't need so I decided to try and find an alternative. As it happens, I already had a digital stamp from Beccy's Place, and the best part.... it was free! I love this strawberry cluster so much better than the one I was contemplating buying, so why waste the money? I love fruit stamps, berries being one of my favorites, so I'm always on the lookout for pretty ones to add to my collection. I'm not picky when it comes to stamps, digital, clear, rubber - I love 'em all.


I remembered that Raspberry Road Designs had a strawberry themed paper set, and they had an awesome sale for Easter last weekend, so I stocked up on some of my favorite collections. This one is called 'Strawberry Farms' and it is to-die-for. 



I added a white cherry blossom (can't remember where I got it) because it resembled Strawberry blossoms and some pretty flourishes for vines. The sentiment seal is from Catslife Press. I may be sending this one off to my Mom for Mother's Day this year, or I might change the sentiment to a general 'Mom' one because her birthday is right around Mother's Day. Kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. 


Hope you like it, thanks for taking a peek!
