Sending Lemony Smiles

It’s the last day of May and I realized I have not expressed my love of the May Stamp of the Month, Classic Summer Bash, nearly enough!

I invested in a Misti stamping tool and have been looking up techniques on Pinterest and found a great video on how to create a wreath template and my brain went to work.  I had seen that Atlantic Hearts Sketch #266 was featuring a wreath so combining the two,  then I stumbled upon the Heart to Heart When Life Hands You Lemons challenge and it all came together for me to participate in a couple of challenge and accomplish my goal of sharing one more card with this sweet stamp set.

Make sure that you don’t waste anytime getting the May Stamp of the Month – it goes away at midnight tonight!  You can click on the picture below and go straight to my shopping page where you can add the stamp set to your cart.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’ve enjoyed my card…my new motto is “when life hands you lemons – grab the Tequilla and Salt”


Update:  My card was selected to the Top 3 at Atlantic Hearts…beyond thrilled!!!


When Life Gives You Lemons

Lemonade is probably one of my all time favorite summer drinks…it used to be iced tea and then I married into a Texan family that is all about Sweet Tea, but it just doesn’t seem to have the same thirst quenching power of Lemonade.

I fell in love with the Iced Cold Summer My Acrylix stamp set in the Seasonal Expressions 2 idea book so it was soon on my wish list and amazingly now part of my collection 🙂  Funny how that happens!

This stamp set paired perfectly with the Taste of Summer papers for National Scrapbook Month from Close to My Heart.  Do you have yours?  Follow the link and get them ordered before the end of May and pick up the matching stamp set and you’ll be all set for your summer time photo ops!

I never seem to have enough thank you notes on hand so I finished off the inside with the Artfully Sent Cricut Compatible stamp set frames and sentiment.  The Canary and Smoothie work so well together…just like Pink Lemonade!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope I’ve inspired you to create when life gives you lemons!  What’s your favorite summertime drink?
