Lemonade anyone :-)

Hi everyone.  Happy Friday.  Just to let you know that Emily is much better and that it was just a 24 hour bug - thank goodness :-)

We have an inspirational post for you this week over at Polkadoodles, as we have now gone over to fortnightly challenges to give you longer to enter.  Our theme for the current challenge, week 8, is Sugar and Spice.  So this could mean so many different things and we are loving what you are all coming up with.

Also the prize for this fortnights challenge - would you believe it £50 (approx $80!) of goodies from Polkadoodles; so come on, what excuse do you have go along and enter!

Also, Nikky has another new collection up for pre-order, so new I haven`t had chance to play with it.  It`s fabulous though!!  Just click on the picture :-)

** Work & Play Collection 1

For my little bit of inspiration this week, I went with the Sugar and Spice as maybe meaning something sweet!

I used the lemonade stand from the In the Garden section of the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1CD. Using the Silhouette Design Studio as I was able to size the pre-coloured digi and make a shaped card.

I made two layers of the stand, placing the boy in between the two, the top layer is up on pop dots to add depth.  The boy and girl pre-coloured images, and the sentiment, are from the Sundae of Seasons CD, these were also cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

For the inside, I cut another stand but just the outline in white - stamped and then enough room to write a note too.

I am loving that I can find so many digis on these CD's that are all great for making those different shaped cards!

I haven't been in the mood for colouring lately, so these CD's are fabulous as the pre-coloured digis are there for you to use too!  Here are the two collections I used.
