Berry sweet... Just need cream!

Good Morning we are ½ way on our Box Clever challenge
and we want to see what boxes you can make?

I thought you might like these tutorials
that I found while browsing

Strawberry box

and I have made another box too! I love that spring is here and the garden is starting to liven up with busy birds and plants...

Being a daft person I thought I would try something I saw last year online, 
bicycle wheels are great in the garden! tehhehheheee, my Husband has put it onto a pole and bolted it so we can move it up as the peonies grow taller...

and while watching all the coming and going by birds I managed to snap this photo...

So then to my clever box

and all I need is cream?
well maybe so strawberries and cream sweets to put inside.
To make the pattern on the red card I have used DR7 Spectrum noir pen, the strawberry green is 1" and 1½" punch and all tied up with some twine.

Here are some Challenge I am playing along with...

My Craft Spot - Ribbon & Twine
Ooh La La Creations - Red
Wild Orchid -  Sunshine inspiration - Sunshine helps the strawberries get ripe and taste lush! 
One Stop Craft -Anything Goes
Pumpkin spice - Candy or anything sweet
Crafts 4 Eternity - Sweet Tooth
Creative Corner - A Song - Strawberry Fields Forever
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge something at least 6mts old = My flower punches I have had those for about 7 years, and the card is about a year old I don't use a whole lot of plain card these days but was glad to find some in my stash! Inspired by a Song Strawberry Fields Forever

Have a great day hugs me xx
