Here is the photo inspiration:
I took my inspiration from the colors,
the fruit and the drink.
Here is my card:
The mason jar stamp from the Peachy Keen
April SOTM reminded me of Lucille's Smokehouse.
They serve all their drinks in mason jars.
Their lemonade is especially yummy.
I stamped the jar using Brilliance Starlite Silver ink
I then colored in the lemonade using
my Stampin Up markers in Yoyo Yellow.
I then coved the entie jar with Glossy Accents.
(as you can see, the color ran a little...oopps!!)
The sentiment came from Just Becasue Cards
Cricut Cartridge cut at 2.5".
My cute little lemons were cut from Simply Charmed

Happy Birthday Sis

Hello and Happpy Wednesday!!
Today I have a card to share
that I made for the
I made this card for my sister's birthday in June.
This card makes me laugh, when I was litlle,
I was afraid of everything.  My sister and brother
used to get caterpillars on the end of a stick
and chase me around the yard.  I used
to run around crying and screaming!!!
So you can guess that the flower that
is screaming that the bee is going to get
her is me and my sister is acting all innocent...LOL!!!

I just love how this turned out!!
I used the adorable Cottage Cutz Funny Flowers
Die and stamp set from Peachy Keeen.
I am getting addicted to these cute little dies!!

The face stamps are included with the dies!!

I got this cute little bee stamp as a freebie with my
order.  I added a little yellow stickles to him.

Both flowers are on Action Wobbles.

The sentiment stamps are from My Creative Time's
Anyday Bingo and Crossword Stamp Set and
Many Greetings Stamp Set.

I have inked everything up using
Tim Holtz Distress in in Shaded Lilac,
Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade
and Scattered Straw.  I have also
added some accents with my
Glitter Gel Pen!!

Sweet Tweets

Hello, and Happy Monday.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
Mine was very busy.  We postponed
celebrating Easter with the kids and grandkids
because my hubby was sick last weekend.
So we had all the kids and grandkids over
yesterday.  We bbq'd and did our easter egg hunt
plus we celebrated my granddsughter's
 and son-in-law's birthdays.  Plus my car has been in
 and out of the shop for  the last two weeks and the bad news
on that is I have to take it back again tomorrow! 
Anyway, I have another card to share with you.

I made this cute little card using another one of the
Peachy Keen Cottage Cutz dies.  It is called
Happy Bird.  The umbrella is from the
Duck Accessories Die Set.
The white layer is cut from the
Spellbinders Fleur Di Lie Rectangles Die.
I added some Nestabling from Want to Scrap.
It is hard to see, but I also added some
clouds to the white background using
a stamp from the Peachy Keen
February 2012 Stamp of the Month Kit.
It is the stamp for the foam from the beer!!

Here is a close up of the sweet little bird.
I added some chalk to add some detail  to the her.

My sentiment is from the Peachy Keen June 2012 SOTM kit.
It is stamped onto a Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Die.
I inked it with Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers.
I added some glitter tulle and a vintage button from
3 Girl Jam with a little twine.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
