When life gives you lemons....

Gosh, it is SOOOOO hot! Too hot to craft, really, but I managed to grab a few minutes  this morning to make a quick card.

I love this sentiment, a parody of the usual "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." It's part of a sheet of wonderfully snarky sentiments from Rubber Dance stamps. The background is stamped randomly with a lemon and leaf stamps from the Hero Arts "Stamp your own salad" stamp set.
The long, narrow sentiment just seemed to call out to be made into a DL card, and the nature of it suggested it really needed to be mounted at a slightly tipsy angle.

I am sharing this with
Just Us Girls - Citrus


  1. Great card, Jane, with the perfect sentiment. Well done on managing to get some crafting down in this heat! xx

  2. Ah this is so summery, great card, Hazelx

  3. Amen to that! LOL I love lemons in any way, shape or form, and I like this great lemony card as well! Ok, now please pass the tequila - I'm ready for that drink :)

  4. Great sentiment and love the stamped background
