Here's something interesting . . . Native American  Indians called strawberries "heart-seed berries" and pounded them into their traditional corn-meal bread. Discovering the great taste of the Native American's bread, colonists decided to create their own version, which became an American favorite that we all know and love .. Strawberry Shortcake.

Don't know about you, but I just love strawberries. Seeing strawberries growing equates to Summer for me.

Sparkle N Sprinkle's artist Beccy Muir, has created Sweet Strawberries Stamp Set 484. I know, it's only February, but in anticipation of Summer, I created some cards to share with you.

As I said, I love strawberries, and if they're dipped in chocolate - well - that's even better.

What better way to tell your sweetheart you love them with a cute card and some real chocolate dipped strawberries.

Thank someone with a handmade thank you card using the small strawberry stamp, beautifully colored and decorated by you.

And one final card to share with you. Using the large strawberry stamp, this could be an any occasion card - just add a sentiment.
