This week at Tuesday Throwdown our challenge is Tag It. Use a tag on your creation and stop by to join us. Our sponsor this week is Robins Fetish Digital Stamps and More and the strawberry image was perfect timing. My boss gave me some strawberries to do something with because they weren't sweet. So I sugared them up and made some Stawberry Sauce.

I used the image on my card and a shrunk up version on the recipe card. Should have made a smaller one for my tag but had a different plan with a larger tag to start with. My images were water colored and I stitched around the edge of the card. A fun little project that is simple and cheery.
I drew the image onto my fabric with a color fast pen and colored it to match the card. Probably would have looked better had I should have stitched the edge of the fabric in red. But you know there is always something you could change. LOL
If you are interested here is a close up of the recipe. Very simple but the sauce makes a great topping for ice cream, cheesecake or cake.
Supplies: SU paper, scrap fabric, Scalloped rectangle nestie Label #10 and Scalloped lace square nestie and misc ribbon.
