Lazy Summer Lemonade

Good morning! With just a few hits until I reach 50,000 I wanted to post a new card today!
Here it is! Sorry about the bad picture. I have been taking them on my front porch and it is raining today so it's quite dark and my bench is wet. The card has better color IRL! This is Loves Me Tilda from the Lazy Summer Days collection. I got mine in my Summer Kit from Magnolia Sweden, but it's not too late to get one! Diana has her (and the rest of the collection) up for preorder right now! Check them out at Magnolia-licious. She has the best prices and if you click her link to join our Yahoo group there are more discounts and surprises!



I used the Spellbinder's Dahlia die cut in my cuttlebug for the background pieces and I'm sure you recognize Basic Grey's Lemonade paper! It was made for these images! What looks like violet in my photos is actually SU's Pomegranate (retired). By the way, this card is my favorite size: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4 inches. Fits regular A2 envelope.
The other day I mentioned Edwin having patches on his jeans to match his shirt. Another thing I love when I color these kids is matching the tennis shoes (sneakers!) to their outfits!
Thanks for visiting today! I really appreciate it! I'll post a few pictures of vacation soon, but something there is no photo of is me eating the 9 lobsters I ate last week-one or two each day! Gosh, I love Maine!
Rain or shine, I wish you a bright, summer day!

NINE??? NINE LOBSTERS???? I am soooooo envious right now!! LOL!!! You're making my mouth water!

Your card is gorgeous, Cheryl! If the color is even better than what it shows, I don't know if I can stand it! WOW! You are using some amazing color combos and this one is stunning! Tilda is too adorable, and you already know what I think of your coloring skills! Maybe one of these days I'll be able to make a card with the new stamps if I ever get any! LOL! Have a great day! hugs, Sharon

Cheryl, fantastic card. Tilda is just too adorable. Can't wait to get mine--it's going to seem like forever. LOL. Love the DP's--have seen them on other cards, but haven't seen them in the stores myself (am trying to stay away and stop myself from buying more DP's--I don't think it'll work). Awesome colouring.

Hugs.
Norma
