Let's Make Lemonade!!

Hi friends & Happy Tuesday!! Sorry no postie yesterday from me, but I spent the day at my mom's and picked up the kids--it was a good time w/o the kids, lots of hubby time, hee hee! We had some great dinners & some shopping sprees of course, LOL--I got new furniture for my NEW craft room (more details to come--me sooo excited), scrappin' goodies and new bedding for our bedroom :o) And that's sayin' alot cuz' my hubby HATES to shop but he indulged me this weekend & we also didn't have any kids whining that they were bored which helped, giggle!! I also finished up my daughter's bedroom so it is now a beachy-teen hangout--we just have to spray paint her lamp & some shadow boxes this week & it will be done--I'll share pics soon! So a very fun & productive 5 days!! And lemme' tell ya it is HOT here in VA--supposed to be 105 degrees today--wowza! I'm stayin' inside & craftin' all day long--kids will play with friends & stay cool inside! Speakin' of stayin' cool....let's move on to my project for today!


-Susana's Store now has the BRAND NEW Spellbinders in (all new labels that I love & ordered all of, shhh...don't tell, lol), new Pink Cat Studio Stamps in and fabulous beautiful Tear Drop Dew Drops!! So make sure and stop by to check them out!!

So it's Tuesday, which means it's Try It Out Tuesday for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design and today I've challenged the DT to use pink, black & yellow on their projects!! I adore these colors together and I was lucky enough to use this fabulous Basic Grey "Urban Prairie" dp!! My layout was semi-CASED from this card HERE by Laurie of Just Give Me Stamps (who does just beautiful work & I'm always in awe)--I loved the elegance of all the elements!

I used the fabulous Lockhart Stamp Co. stamp "Lemons & Bayleaves" and colored w/ copics to match the dp--the lemons have diamond glaze on top and stickles on the leaves. The buttons, ribbon & sentiment are all from Paper Trey Ink and the black cs was embossed w/ a Cuttlebug Folder. I half circled my main image with Kaiser Pearls in black to finish it off! Just a simple & elegant notecard for someone special!!

Now make sure & stop by Susana's store blog "Follow Your Heart" to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects today!

See ya back here tomorrow!
