Allsorts Challenge Week 55 - Strawberries and Cream

Happy Saturday all you crafters and welcome to another challenge at Allsorts where it's my (Brenda) turn to host the challenge again.

Where I live in the Cambridgeshire Fens, the arrival of strawberries in late May is always an eagerly awaited event in the produce calendar, so for my theme this week I want you to draw inspiration from the pictures below.

You don't have to put strawberries on your project, although of course you can if you want and you can use other colours for skin, hair etc., but the main ones should be taken from the pictures and I have given you two to make things a bit easier.
Above a cake I made for crafting research........such sacrifices and of course I had to try a piece to ensure the picture was fit for blog publication and below a simple bowl of strawberries and cream.......and everything is calorie free of course.

This weeks winner will receive a prize from one of our regular sponsors :

and Sally-Ann will be offering our lucky winner a choice if £10 value digital images so you will be absolutely spoilt for choice from all the wonderful images she has available.

As usual we have some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team, details of how their creations were made and products uses can be found on their blogs, juct click on their names to go to them.
Two cards, making choices was never my strong point

What beautifully designed cards. I went to my neglected stamps and found this adorable strawberry and decided it would be a perfect graduation stamp. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for visiting out blog. Feel free to stop and "follow" our stamping adventures.
