Basket Full of Strawberries

Hello and Happy Tuesday.

This Friday, Bean will finish her 2-week swim class. She has had a wonderful time...whether she can really swim, well, that's another story. But she is no longer afraid of the water, so that's a good thing!

This is a little gift for her swim teacher. Each strawberry holds 4 Hershey Kisses, and the basket/strawberries are an SVG from MyGrafico. It was a lot easier to put together than I thought it would be.

I thought I'd dress up the basket a little with even more Strawberries from Designed2Delight. I colored these with Copics and couldn't decide on whether to put them on front or use them as a tag. I hope I made the right decision....but now where do I put a little "thanks for being so sweet" sentiment?" I'll work this out before Friday when Bean presents this to her teacher.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

This will be entered in the following challenges:

What a cute idea... your coloring is so AWESOME. I am sure Bean's teacher is going to love this.. I will be waiting to see where you put the "you are so sweet"... would it fit under the strawberries? Not much space... so so cute. Glad Bean isn't afraid of the water anymore... and that she had a good time.. hugs from ukiah
