Dare to Get Dirty.  If you're a Splitcoast Stamper Fan Club member then you're probably working your dirty little fingers off.  If you're not a member spoil yourself and join up then you can play along with the rest of us. 

I have a berry special friend.  We give each other strawberry themed presents.  We've been doing this since 1980 or so.  It's lots of fun to see a box appear in the post and there's that thrill of opening a present and wondering what will be inside.  One year we sent each other the same thing, pretty funny since we shop in completely different places.  She lives in California and I was living in New Jersey.   But it's not surprising that we're on the same wavelength, isn't that what friends are all about.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "PI Bery Sweet"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and Memento "Lady Bug"
paper - Stampin' Up "Pear Pizzazz" and "Blushing Bride" card stock; My Mind's Eye"Mary, Mary 'Sweetie Pie' Strawberry Paper", "Mary, Mary 'Happy birthday' Celebration paper" and "Mary, Mary 'Beautiful' Gorgeous paper" dps; Me and My Big Ideas "Color Basics - Red" dp
Miscellaneous - copics, pearls; Stampin' Up corner punch; ribbon; strawberry charm; My Favorite Things "Mini Tab Quartet" and "Simply Scallop" die-namics; pink burlap twine; sewing machine
