Self-Imposed Intervention

Welcome To My Unity Friends With Flair Post!
My card today ALMOST had October Afternoon Thrift Shop or Fly a Kite, BUT I forced myself to take a break from it as I was getting highly addicted! I kept staring at it, picking it up, touching it, but finally I told myself "STEP AWAY FROM THE OCTOBER AFTERNOON PAPER!" and grudgingly I listened!

I guess it wasn't so hard since I had a fresh new 6x6 pad of Cosmo Cricket Delovely to play with, so that softened the blow a bit!

I used my April Unity Kit of the Month and paper pieced the strawberry, then covered it with Alene's Paper Glaze. The little brown strip is from Bella Blvd and I used my Fiskar's Apron Lace punch for the decorative edge. I also used the pink gingham fabric tape from Love My Tapes (another new addiction-eep!) I had fun with this one and it was good to (temporarily) break my addiction with October Afternoon. Make sure to check out the list of everyone on the hop over at the Unity blog!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
