When You Get Lemons for Your Birthday Fusion!

 
Hello Stampers and Friends!
 
Today's Challenge is from 'Fusion' 
We can use the sketch OR the photo for inspiration...
OR you can combine the two!
 
I chose to combine the two!
 
 
 
Here is the Fusion Challenge:
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 
 
 
Clean and Simple! 
 
 
 
Here is the inside of the Card!
 
 
 
(I am getting some mileage out of this stamp! Simple!)
 
 
 
 
Here is the Card with it's stamped and colored envelope!
 
 
 
 
 
I think my favorite part of this card is...how 'warm'
it makes me feel! It feels like Summer!

Here's your 'C' note:
 
You have heard it before...
 
If life hands you lemons, make lemonade!
 
...and then grate the peels and use them to flavor
some great food like:
 
Portuguese Sweet Rice
Lemon Pudding
Lemon Shortbread
Lemon Pound Cake
Lemon Icing
Sweet Tea
 
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Lemonade to you ALL!
