Berry Season

 We live in a county where berries are big business.  Last year 63.4 million pounds of raspberries were harvested.  90 million pounds of blueberries are expected this year.  Strawberries are taking a back seat to the first two berries mentioned but there were over 4 million pounds picked a few years back.
 Our blueberry plants are loaded this year so I won't go anywhere to pick.  We have everbearing strawberries so they come on all summer.  Next year we are planting some raspberries so we don't have to go pick the berries and pay an ever increasing amount per pound.  Needless to say - it is jam season!
 I love these digital sets by Diane's Daydream Designs - all the fun papers, colored images, cute sayings.  This is the last full size card that I will be making with these sets for awhile.  Next I will be making tags to go on jars of jam that I will be giving as gifts this Christmas.  The tag on this card comes ready for a sentiment.  The big brad is a digital.  It looks so real!  With all the berries to pick and process, you might have to wait until December for the tags because that is probably when I will get around to making them!
Thank you BERRY much for taking a look and for any SWEET comments you might leave for me.
