Pucker Up!

Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well. Today is the last day of my spring break, & I'm sad at the thought of going back to work...BUT only 43 more school days 'til SUMMER!!! Woohoooooo!!!

Today's card was inspired by Tuesday Trigger: A Citrus Celebration over at the Moxie Fab World.

I immediately loved the bright green & the polka dots, but the word "citrus" is what really inspired my card...
I used some fun polka dotted paper from Jillibean Soup to paper piece these limes, then added the fun sentiment to finish it off. I used FTL133 as my sketch.

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Feelin' Fruity? (My Favorite Things)
Paper: YoYo Yellow, PTI white & kraft, Jillibean Soup pp
Ink: Adirondack Espresso
Accessories: Polka Dot Basics II Impression Plate (PTI), dimensionals

Ooh, very citrusy and cute! Love that 'pucker up'! You always have the best sentiments!

Good luck going back tomorrow, going back last week was rough for me! At about Thursday I asked someone, "How many weeks have we been back since spring back?" I was devastated to hear it was our first week back! ha! We still have 10 more weeks, sigh...

Super cute!! I just saw a quote...somewhere...fb or a blog...I forget, but your card totally made me think of it...When life gives you lemons, make lemonade and then find someone who's life gave them vodka and have a party! :D
