It's Summertime with Sentimental Sundays

It's summertime and the living is easy..... I love that song. It brings back some fond memories.

The challenge this week on the Sentimental Sundays blog is "Summertime". And to me, one of the hallmarks of summer is a pitcher of fresh squeezed lemonade.

I made this card both for the challenge and for a friend who is going through a bit of a rough patch. The pitcher is covered with a couple of coats of UTEE. The lemon is coated with just one coat in IRL looks a little dimply like a real lemon.

If you like this pitcher of lemonade and the lemon, you can get them from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of this digital stamp set go to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). ALSF is committed to finding a cure for all children with cancer. Click HERE to purchase.

The sentiment comes from the Doodle Pantry's Lemon Ants digital stamp set. This set is currently free!

Please join us in the Sentimental Sunday's "Summertime" challenge. Ann will have a new word art freebie posted this week.

Thank you for looking! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
