Squeeze the Day!

Happy Day Friends!

It's time to squeeze the day ;)  LOL!!

This weeks challenge over at the Just Us Girls Challenge blog is Citrus.
It just so happens that I have a brand new set of stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry that fits the bill perfectly... Fresh Lemonade and a sentiment from the set - Whispers from the Garden.

To create the card I started by stamping the flower as a base for each cluster. I then stamped the lemons and limes, filled in with the large leaf bunch. I made a little lemon mask and then stamped the small leaf cluster here and there using the mask over the adjoining lemon/limes. 
Easy peasy, lemon squeezey!  (sorry, couldn't resist!)

What do you think?

Makes me thirsty for a Lemon Shake-Up!  I've been experimenting lately...I made a Strawberry Lemon Shake-Up the other day and it was exquisite!  I'm thinkin' it's time to try a Lemon-Blueberry Shake-Up?!?!

I was having so much citrus fun I decided to make another card....

I started off by tracing an oval onto the card.  I stamped along the left side then added a bit of watercolor along the right side.  After it had dried I stamped the sentiment, trimmed & mounted it toa green card base.

Have a sweet day!

  1. Super cute cards. This new stamp set is on my wish list!

    1. Thanks Heidi! You won't be disappointed...I keep thinking of new ideas to use them with.

  2. Great cards, both of them! But the second one is my favorite

    1. Thanks Brenda ~ you know I have never tried that swish-y thing before. I didn't like it while I was making it and almost threw it away but I really liked it afterwards - LOL!!

  3. How cute are those little lemon-and-lime clusters! A duo of delight, indeed. Thrilled to see these gems in the Just Us Girls gallery!

    1. Thanks so much Carol - the timing was perfect :)
