A Spoonful of Sugar for your Lemonade???

I know it is corny but I have two cards to show today!! The first one is for A Spoonful of Sugar!! They had a lovely sketch to use for this week!! AND you can use ANY image that you want from now on!! So I decided to use this cute Tilda. I had to make my Aunt a b-day card and her favorite color is red!! This is like the only paper I have of that color so it was not hard to pick!! (LOL) I went with paper piecing because I don't have that color blue ! (UGH I really hate that!!) AND please excuse the glitter pen I went alittle nuts with it!! (o.k, o.k alot nuts ~ LOL)!



The second card is for me!! (LOL) I loved this image from the Sweet 'n Sassy Summer Fun set with the matching sentiments from the Summer Sentiments set. (Say that 5 times fast!)
This was a new release from last month. I also paper pieced the lemonade and lemon in the pitcher and then went over it with liquid glass. I say that it is for me because last year my brother and family moved up closer to me after living so far away for 11 years!! NOW yesterday my SIL tells me they are going back for 6 months!! That is rotten every holiday will be over by the time they get back!!! (WAH) So I have to make Lemonade!!!The sketch for this card was inspired by 2 sketches 4 you!

Anyway I hope everyone has a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!! Off to buy school shoes for the girls!!

Just wonderful cards Kathy. I love the way you have used your paper in your images, I will have to remember that next time. Sorry about your family not being with you for a while, you will be willing the time away I bet.
