Lemonade Summer

     Another short and sweet post but hopefully by this evening, I'll have some breathing space.  I have to try to get lots done because by next weekend, I'll be gone again.  Today, I used an image from Lacy Sunshine to celebrate summer one more time.  Makes me think about those 'best days' of childhood summers with lemonade stands and friends who helped drink most of it before any could ever be sold for a nickel !  :-D


I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Weds. 2.



      Papers are from a scrapbook stack by DCWV and the image is colored with ProMarkers.  The rest is pretty obvious.

Oh my gosh. First off I have to say, thanks for the laugh when I saw the new banner. So stinkin' cute and I love your bi-line as well.

Now on to your card! Boy are you bringing back memories. Only for me it was 25 cents a cup and not 5. ;) Oh great and now I want a glass of lemonade.

Thanks for joining us this fortnight over at Pattie's Creations Challenges. I know there is a second card of yours that I will be checking out, so I'll see you momentarily...
