When Life Give You Lemons.....

.....Find Vodka and Party!

Hi, guys! I've had this stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie for a very long time! I found her stamped but not coloured in a folder, and since I'd just got the Avery Elle Berry Good stamp set with its fabulous sentiment, I just had to put the two together! I apologise for the faded picture, the colours are a bit more vibrant irl.

The papers are from the 'Nook and Pantry' 6 x 6 paper pad by Basic Grey. You can see that I'm trying to use up stash, these papers, like the image, are several years old! The baker's twine is from stash, and the shiny stickers are by Paperchase.

I've been making a few more cards than usual recently, a lot of my friends or their children have summer birthdays. The housework has been suffering, however: tomorrow I have a huge pile of ironing to do! And I must clean out the fridge, I found some celery there that was a week past its sell-by date. Luckily it was still good enough to go into a Minestrone!

(Is anyone else humming 'Life is a Minestrone' by 10cc? No? Just me? My pals and I used to dance to it at the Friday Disco in the Durham Catholic Chaplaincy, back in the 70s. Those were the days! Flares, embroidery, smocks, Shisha sequins.... Ah, memories!)

I used a Sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 so i am entering their current challenge. I hope the gap between the two printed papers behind the image shows up!!!

Thanks very much for looking, and I hope you all have a fab weekend!

love Mags B x

Oh Mags what a cute image and I just adore your sentiment, I think mine would have to be gin and not the vodka. Pretty colours as well. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your card with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
