When Life Gives You Lemons.... (Tuesday Trigger/TAWS #32)

Hello crafty peeps, I'm back today with a card for two challenges! I made this "lemony" card for the current Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger "A Scene In Tangerine". Here is the inspiration pic:

and it is also for the TAWS Be Inspired #32 Challenge, here is the pic for that as well.

I am thinking I will give this card to my husband. I have had such a grateful heart this last couple months. I am so blessed in many many ways, and this guy is one of the biggest ones! :) He really does make my life sweet, and I am so glad I met him over 20 years ago. You jut never know where life will take you, and I'm so glad that our paths have been intertwined for almost 23 years! :) Here is a recent photo at my sister's *second* wedding reception here in CO. :)

Here is my card again. I pulled the rick rack, the colors, and the stripes on the background DP from the Trigger. I used the dots and some of the grey/orange vibe from the TAWS inspiration.

The card is a Tangerine Tango base dry embossed with a honeycomb embossing folder (both Stampin' Up!). The stamps are all TAWS except the sentiment which is an older TCP set, that is no longer available. I searched my whole stash for a "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" stamp, but I don't have one?!? crazy talk-I KNOW! ;) Maybe I will "need" this one from Lawn Fawn-too cute!

My lemon and lemonade glass were stamped on a scrap of yellow cardstock and then colored with Copics. 

That's all for me today! I will be back tomorrow with a card for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge! :)

hugs, Noelle
