Lemonade Stand

     If there's one thing that my hubby and I are polar opposites on, it's our opinion of lemons.  I love lemon anything and he can't stand them.  LOL  This little "Lemon Bunch" is part of this weeks new release from A Day For Daisies.  This release also marks the start of a new challenge at the ADFD blog with a theme of "Yellow and polka dots".
I've really been trying to experiment lately with my Copics and shading and I was really REALLY happy with how the shading of the lemons turned out.  Lots of layers, lots of yellow, and lots of polka dots.  LOL  Hope you'll pop into the blog and play along.  There'll be a freebie as always since the challenge requires the use of a ADFD image.  Of course you can always go to the store and have fun shopping.  :-)
     Think hubby and I might have a date tonight.  Has anyone seen the new Bourne movie yet?  Boy am I thirsty.  ;-)
     I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz--monochrome
Crafty Ribbons--feeling fruity
Crafting For All Seasons--bright colors
Anything Goes Challenge--summer days
Everybody-Art-Challenge--summer
Ribbon Carousel--celebrating summer
Creative Mondays--food
Make It Monday--anything goes
The Crafty Pad--summer vacation

     Happy Friday!

  24. This is lip smacking good. I am afraid lemons make my arthritis worse so can not touch anything they have been near. Your card looks gorgeous though. I saw you over at MIM this week.

  34. Hey GF! Love your bright & cheery & quite lemony card! I love lemons too & Frank doesn't! LOL Isn't that funny! LOL
    Anywho.......you did a fantastic job coloring your lemons. I could just reach right out & grab one. You've got me craving one now. LOL When I was pregnant with Kim I ate so many lemons that it took all the enamel off my teeth. Sure was worth it though. LOL
    We just saw The Hunger Games last night on DVD. Haven't been to the movies in forever. Hope your movie date was fun.
    Happy Huggies ~
