Making lemonade......


Oh boy, when life hands you a new twist........I want to keep this a cheery place but my son and our family had a big disappointment this week.  We are getting on with life and will probably be in a better place because of this.  So we are trudging forward and I thought that making this card was fitting.  

I've used Feeling Fruity from Whimsy Stamps.  And don't we all know.......when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!  :)

I made a cute little shaker card using various sequins from Pretty Pink Posh......clear, summer sequin mix, and lemon meringue.  The circle was die cut with the Stitched Mats: Circles from Lil' Inker Designs.
