When Life Gives You Lemons!

  Hello Crafter's, Hope you all had a nice weekend. School starts back day after tomorrow. Summer break went by so fast.

 My grandson Walker loves to visit with me late at night. He will message me a lot of times after midnight and ask if I'm still up. Love that they now live next door. Going to miss those late night talks. But we will still have the weekends.

Before I get to busy with the things I need to do today, I wanted to share my latest card that I made.

This card was super easy to make and perfect for a summer card. I have had that little lemon stamp set for several years and had never used it. My goal is use every stamp set that I have. 

I don't think the stamp has a name but was made by Studio G. I have several of those little stamp sets that I haven't used yet. Do any of you have stamps that you haven't used? 

I used Olive Old card stock for the strips. The Inks I used are Summer Sun and Memento Black.

Ran the the strips through the cuttlebug with a dots embossing folder.

Love how fast this card came together. I'm planning on making another one. But instead of lemons, I'm going to make it limes.  

Well I have a lot to do today, You all have a great week and hope you can make it back again.
