Do Lemons Make YOU Smile?

Who's ready for Spring?  Raise your hand!
If this week's challenge over at
doesn't get you in the mood, then all hope is lost.


Nothing says Spring like 'lemon yellows'
and that's exactly the inspiration behind this week's challenge.
Sarah is our UK designer and she is
the 'hostess with the mostess'!

Hopefully you have enjoyed the vine border stamp from Memory Box
because here it is again!  I LoVe it!  I used a variety of VersaMark
pads for my inks and did a little zig-zag sewing.

The DP's are all from my BOO fact, I can't
even remember who made them.  There's no hallmark on
any of them, but they are from the same collections.
The paper flowers are brand new from Prima
and the sentiment is a $1 clear stamp from StudioG.

Make sure you head on over to The Cafe
and check out The Cafe News.
There's lots going on and LOTS coming up!
You will NOT want to be left out of the fun!

One more thing....
I managed two posts today, so please keep
scrolling for more
and pleeeeease let me know you were here
by leaving a comment.
I feel lonely when I know 'someone' came by
but didn't say hi   :  (

Of course, lemons DO make me smile
:  )

I love lemons! Especially cake (just bought some), and pancakes (might make some), and home-made lemonade (might dig out recipe) but they do also look lovely as colours on your card!

Cute card! I"m not a huge fan of yellow for some reason, so it was good for me to step out of my box with this one. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Have a wonderful week!
