The second patriotic card that I have to share is from my friend, Fumiko. 

This stamp set goes back a few years when there were many Americana and country style images sold by stamp companies.

Thanks for sharing Fumiko.

This card is a valentine that my stamping buddy, Susie, sent me. I was looking at it today and thinking that it could also be transformed into a June strawberry card.

Susie, put some green caps on the red hearts, maybe using a flower punch, and create a strawberry card for me! You know how I love strawberries! ☺

The strawberry stands are set up in my neighborhood and ready to go. I can hardly wait.
