When life gives you lemons....

This week's challenge at CASology is "Juicy" which was a great excuse to use one of my "When life gives you lemons..." sentiment stamps. I have two, one the traditional version and the other the tequila version - I decided to go traditional today.

The lemon slice is simply made by cutting circles in three different shades of yellow and then cutting the smallest one into eighths.

I did actually stamp the sentiment directly on to the card but the angle didn't look quite right, so I covered it with a stamped and layered one which I think looks better anyway as it keeps the yellow theme running right across the body of the card.

And now I'd like to share with you a photo of some gorgeous stash that I won from Lau Home and Party who ran a competition on their Facebook page which I was lucky enough to win

Just look at all that washi tape! Some of it is even sparkly! Fabulous tags, twine and stickers too, as well as fabric tape, bags and decorative straws. Look out for all these lovely goodies appearing on my makes soon - when I've finished stroking them of course.


  1. Congratulations on your win Jane. Lots of lovely bakers twine and washi for you to use. Well Done!

    I love your card. A great CAS make. I love that sentiment and the design is fantastic. Love it! Barbxx
