Time to Make Jam for SSC#155

Hello Everyone!
Welcome Back for a peek at today's Card!
This Card is from an inspiration picture!
The picture has raspberries...but, I just bought
the last of the Strawberries from my local
farm stand...I made some Strawberry Jam!
4 Quarts! When I was up North, I used to make
12 Quarts...then give them to my neighbors at
Christmas...I also made Blueberry Jam too!
Don't really have the kids, grand-kids, or real close
neighbors here yet...so I didn't have to make so much!
Those 4 Quarts will last me and Mr. Hubster till next year!
Over the weekend, there was a Blueberry Festival in town!
Yup! Going to make 4 Quarts of Blueberry Jam!
So with all this Canning in mind...and when I saw this
Challenge...it was a no-brainer!
Here is the Challenge!
I don't know when the Raspberries come in, I may have missed
them or they aren't here yet...I will have to ask around!
So, I went with the Strawberries!
The colors, I named them from top to bottom:
Sahara Sand
So Saffron (didn't use)
Pear Pizzazz
Flirty Flamingo
Real Red
Rose Red
I matched them as best I could with what I have on hand!
Also the other was to choose and use a minimum
of 3 of the colors...I used all but one!
Here is my Card!

I stamped the Strawberries in 3 different colors!
Rose Red-Real Red-Flirty Flamingo
Here is the inside of my Card!

I purposely left it blank...I usually give a card to the grower of
the Strawberries, Blueberries, and (to come) Tomatoes!
I will have to make a Blueberry one!
The Tomato, I have till next month!
I am also taking a try at Peaches this year too!
Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!

I will put the name of the farm(er) on the front of the envelope too!
