Life and Lemons = Margaritas

Good Morning and a Happy Monday!

I am still having a fabulous time in Chicago, and hoping the rain stays away so we can take in the Cubs game this evening. This is the one thing that Hunter insisted he wanted to do while we are here, so as long as I don't have to sit in the rain we will be catching a ball game tonight.

Today begins a new challenge over on the Critter Sketch challenge blog, This week we have a fabulous sketch for you to play with. Now the challenge is to use the sketch plus we want to see you use a minimum of 2 different ribbons.

This is my off week on the design team, but you know I can not resist a good sketch so I just had to play along.

As some of you may agree when Everyday Life and Lemons meet that it sometimes equals only one thing - Margaritas!!! LOL!! Beverage of my choice on those days when all is tart!

When I saw this sweet image released on Whimsie Doodles, I didn't hesitate to grab it up. It is such a fun image and I see me using it for many different occasions. I think it makes a great Pick Me Up card on those days that you find you're carrying the whole world on your shoulders. LOL! Ever have one of those days?

 I used Basic Grey Nooks and Pantry paper collection,(isn't it just perfect with this image?), a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds and Stardust Stickles to give the lemons a bit of sparkle. Doodle Bug glittery candy dots. Those yummy ribbons are from a Taylor Expression's Key Ingredient Kit.

So I hope you hop on over to visit the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog and see all the fabulous creations the design team has to share with you today. I would love to see your creation with the sketch, just link your card to our challenge blog by Sunday August 8th.

Have a Fabulous Week and crafty day!!
Thanks for visiting my blog!
