Lemon Sunshine

Hey y'all!  How's your day going?  I'm looking forward to Ryan's second swim lesson this afternoon.  His first lesson went well I thought, he smiled the whole time and didn't even mind getting dunked.  That kid loves the water.

Anywha, I've got a very sunny card to share today!


This reminds me of Ron's spell to turn his rat yellow in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

"Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow,
Turn this stupid fat rat yellow!"
*excessive wand waving*

It didn't work, but maybe this card will work to put some sunshine in someone's day when I mail it out.  I sent out cards to my friend Tiana's daughters last week and they were both so excited to get mail.  Heck, I get excited to get mail (which might explain my Amazon addiction...).

My lemon sunshine card is a triple challenge effort.  First up is the color combination from Cupcake Inspiration:


Heyyy I only used the three colors called for!  Yay me.  I used Pineapple Punch for the yellow, I am enjoying all the new colors.  I need to work on building up my cardstock stash for the new shades though, I only have like three sheets of Pineapple Punch at the moment.

Next up (alphabetically) is Global Design Project's sketch:

And finally, this is my first time playing along at Just Us Girls:


I figured the color combination and this word prompt were made to go together and that's how I got my lemon wedges.  I put Wink of Stella on them too, which you can actually see in the picture if you click to embiggen.  It's a miracle!  That never shows up in pictures ;)

Hope you have a sunshiney day, y'all.  Cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Lemon Zest, Sunshine Sayings, Magical Mermaid (splatter, why is that my favorite stamp from this set?!)
Ink:  Pineapple Punch, Whisper White
Paper:  Pineapple Punch, Thick Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories:  White EP, white baker's twine, Dimensionals, Wink of Stella, circle punch

I DO like yellow. It doesn't LOOK got on me, but I do like it. I just had to throw away one of my only yellow shirts because it got washed with something darker and absorbed that color . . . shoot. It was the one with ladybugs on it. But yellow is such a sun-shiny color and it makes you feel good.

I like your card, too. Very nice.

Smiling allll over my face in seeing your luscious lemon slices paired with the eye-catching black/yellow/splattered background. Citrus-sensational! Thank you for sharing this 'first time' gem in the Just Us Girls gallery! Hope you'll join us again and again!

Funny that you remembered that spell from Harry Potter! I'll have to pay attention next time we watch it. Such a great CAS card and I love that you used our color theme! Your comment reminded me that I need to send out some happy mail myself. Here's to spreading a little sunshine! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Cupcake Inspirations this week! Wendy DT
