4th of July Lemonade Stand

Did ya know that Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps hosts a sketch challenge every week? Did ya? Did ya? Well, yes indeed! Hop on over to The Sweet Spot, where a new sketch challenge is posted every Saturday. Why not play along this week? It's a great sketch!

This week's sketch has a spin of using red, white and blue. That's a very good idea since I checked the calendar and... yipes... 4th of July is coming up fast!

I couldn't resist using one of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps digi images. This one is called Lemonade Stand. Isn't it cute??? One of the fun things about digi images is that you can resize them to fit the space, which is exactly what I did for my card. I also added "Happy 4th of July" to the top of the stand. You can leave it blank or add your own text... whatever strikes your fancy!

I colored the sweet image with my Copics, and added a touch of sparkle to the lemonade with my yellow atYou Spica pen. Nothing like a cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. Yum!

It's a short post today because I still need to finish prepping for Stamp Club. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. I absolutely love hearing from you!

This is a very cute image - and so appropriate as you were off making lemonade in one of your recent posts - LOL.
Love the vibrant colours and it's a great sketch - I guess we'll be seeing a lot of red,white and blue on US blogs over the next week or so!!
In case I forget - have a GREAT 4th of July!

Hmmm...I think you were just making lemonade! What an adorable image! I think I will try some of the digi's - I haven't yet, but I'm going to be daring - if Lisa can do it Patti can too! Your card makes me smile! Great job on your coloring! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lisa, this is so cute. Lemonade stands are rare here, but I'd stop at this one!

I guess the red and white is CS, but is the other panel paper or a stamp? Like how the ribbon ties it all together.

Have to check out this blog too....

Awesomely Cute Lisa!! I don't think I knew that SnS had a sketch challenge!! Or did I? I'm sure I must've seen it on Lorie's blog at some point but in any case, I had forgotten then, so thanks for that reminder!! I'll try to play along :) Have a super day!

Well, Lisa... yes I'm the worlds "worst" blogging friend!! I'm still catching up on comments from last week and missed your sweet card you posted Monday!! :(

Your DP's are SO CUTE, great coloring on the image (As always!) and that YUMMY ribbon. You always have such cute ribbons and know how to make them perfectly... Your special touch!! :) Hope your Stamp Club night went well... fun visiting with the girls and enjoying some creative card making! This afternoon Sue and I wrapped up the invites for the township event and off in the mail they go!! Will get the final details done in a couple weeks! Now I can kick back and enjoy some stamping time.. plus the hubby is gone tonight!! Hummmm what should I do with my time... LOL! :)

As always, very cute Lisa! Such a fitting cards for this time of year. As a matter of fact, I could go for a glass of lemonade right's "unbearably" hot and humid here in VA =) Have a wonderful weekend! Love and Smiles to You!!
