When life gives you lemons.......

Oh I just adore this image!! I really have been waiting for her to turn to rubber since I seen her at Elisabeth's gallery!! I have played along with the sketch from Friday Sketchers but as it is 11:30pm I am sure I am late!! LOL I had it made and forgot all about it!! I had painting on the brain!!I decided to add a tag behind the circle since I did not have a place for my sentiment ~ which I thought was perfect for this card! On the tag it reads "When life gives you lemons" ~ a sentiment from SNSS ~ and on the inside it reads "Make lemonade". Could that be more perfect for this image!!!
Anyways I have used more MME paper ~ which is about all I use these days! I purged my papers and have only a basket that I kept! I have decided that I don't want to be a collector of papercrafts anymore ~ I want to actually use it and if I don't think I will I am getting rid of it. Can you tell I have moved rooms and don't want to move it!! LOL
I also used twinkling h2o's along with distress inks. I have added liquid glass to the pitcher and glass to make it more realistic!

Well thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous week-end. I am headed to the Amusement Park today with my hubby and the girls! It is his last day of vacation so we saved it for today. Then hopefully I will get back to some blog hopping! Take care....
