South for the Winter - NC SU Demos Blog Hop

It's time for another NC Stampin' Up! Demos Blog Hop. This month the theme is South for the Winter - something that makes us think of warmer times as we're starting to get tired of winter. Of course, when this theme was picked, I'll be no one expected it to 70 degrees.

When I think of warm weather, I think of lemonade. And lemonade makes me think of my mom and sister because it's a staple on our mother daughter weekends. And that makes me happy!

So, I created a card using Lemon Zest. It's fitting, because this sentiment is something my mom instilled in my sister and me. Maybe not in these exact words, but certainly the intent.

Stamps: Lemon Zest
Ink: Crushed Curry, Garden Green
Cardstock: Garden Green, Whisper White
Punch: Lemon Builder Punch

Here's how I finished off the inside:

We'll be making this card in my upcoming Birthday Stamp-a-Stack next Saturday and the following Monday. If you're local to the Raleigh/Garner area and would like to come, let me know. Details are on the Classes/Events page.

Your card is super sweet (and sour?) Love these lemons and I love this set! You're making me want to break it out now and play.
