Happy Hump Day Everyone!!  I hope you are all having a great week!!  Today it is time for another fun Whiff of Joy Challenge!!!  This week's challenge is a fun one: "Strawberries and cream"!!!

When I think of Strawberries and cream, I think of red or pink, and a very vanilla color....so this is what I came up with...I decided to make a cheer up or thinking of you gift set for a friend.





I used the adorable Henry Hugging Heart from Whiff of Joy which I colored with copics.  The designer paper is Prima English Rose.  I added some Making Memories pink gingham ribbon (tied with the bow easy) and some lace.  The mouse is layered on a Spellbinders Lacey circles.  The sentiment in the pocket is cut out with a spellbinders heart.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs Mini Tags 3

This gift box is my own design and does not follow a template...

For more inspiration for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Anne Chelsea,  Gio, Jane, KathrinKylie, Louise, Manuela.  Michele To join our challenge, please link your creation here.
