If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade....!

Last week I found this great blog Cute Card Thursday. This week's theme is:

Challenge 54 - Citrus Colours
We want to see your fabulous bright creations this week using the colours hot pink, lime, lemon and orange! (You are allowed to use some or all of the colours!)
Supplies Used: miscellaneous paper, prima flowers and
walmart flowers, Life Is... stamp from CTMH.
I started off using the scraps from my other cards made earlier this week, but realized that I had no mojo left in me for them. As I was cleaning up my paper, I stumbled across this great floral patterned paper that completely inspired me. Everytime I look at it, it reminds me of lemonade- hence the name for todays post. So, now off to the store to buy some lemonade- I have to stop this association of food with my cards! I will never get anything done and I will eat us out of house and home! Now, here is what happened this week from making cupcake cards....

I have been crazy this week and part of the craziness was trying my hand at some of these great blog challenges that I have discovered. The down side of making these cards, well, I have become obsessed with wanting cake- more specifically CUPCAKES! Yummmy, yummy delicatable crumbly moist cupcakes, with lots of vanilla icing....mmmmmm. Back to the story..... So, with making these cute cupcake cards, I made some real ones. Now the other side of the story is that one of my girls volunteered me to make some treat for her class today, as we are having a belated baby shower for her teacher. Since I couldn't find any "pink" baby toppers for the cupcakes at Wally's, I improvised and bought Sour Bunnies! Aren't they the cutest thing? Kids just love the sours! So, I my mind, "killed 2 birds with one stone." Now, will they all make it to school?????? Time will tell. If you see me coming and I have crumbs in my hair- well, you will know the rest of the story. ( I am just chock full of these quotes today!)
Have a terrific Friday!
