DoubleClick Skittles Challenge #28 - Food

Welcome to a brand new DoubleClick Skittles Challenge!  

Aug. 5 to Aug 18

Today I'm featuring the Willow Skittles on this sweet little strawberry card.   With food being the theme, there are so many routes I could have taken.  I have a love for stamping and coloring, so I chose to color up this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp for the first time.  I've been waiting on the perfect occasion and today is that day.  I opted to use the Willow Skittles; they're pale in color and I thought something neutral would be a perfect blend to compliment the red and green.  The little strawberry on the lower left was fussy cut and popped out with foam squares and the sentiment was heat embossed.

Willow is a test batch and not in full production.  Did you know Carri makes each batch by hand?  Manufactured in the good 'ole USA in her craft space.  How cool is that?  I'm sure she'd be happy to send you some Willow if you email her with your product request, and if she has any available.  Willow has a very faint, pale light green tint, but my lighting is a little bright and doesn't capture the full color.

You can purchase Skittles right here in an amazing assortment of colors:

Shipping is always FREE in the USA and her prices are priced just right.  Plus, you can pay with PAYPAL.  Bonus!  No worries about compromising your credit card information.

You can still purchase the brand new Disney-themed "Believe in Magic" Skittles here:

  8. Like all things strawberry. Especially like how you fussy cut & popped up one of the strawberries. We grow strawberries that we have had for 5+ yrs. Hubby transplanted some of the Strawberries next to the back of the house foundation and they are thriving there. Even had some produce this Summer when they normally stop after Spring.
