Lemonade Anyone?

** You can find my birthday candy here **

Good morning friends.  Today I've used an older Penny Black stamp for my card.


This image is called Make Lemonade and I couldn't find the stamp on their website so I think maybe it's been discontinued.  I'm not usually a fan of mice but I have to say that I think these two are adorable.  Penny Black always has some of the cutest critter stamps.  I colored this image with copics and colored pencils and then used Creative Inspirations Paints to paint the glass of lemonade.  I used Sunshine and Mello Yellow for the lemonade and then painted a coat of Fairy Dust over the entire glass.  Although you can't really see it in this picture, the paints give the glass a cold, frosty look.  I added some ribbon and a few buttons.  The sentiment is from the AmyR Sweet Sentiments stamp set and you can find that set at All That Scraps.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day!

Hugs, Anita
