If Life Gives You Lemons...


If life gives you lemons.....send a thank you card!!!!!
We rec'd this box of sunshine from AZ the other day, the other dreary day! What a blessing! Thank you, my sweet SIL Susan & BIL Don!!! We already juiced them and are enjoying some lemonade!!!!
So, here is the thank you card I made!
Fortunately, House Mouse has a stamp for every occasion! :) I used the wonderful sketch from Friday Sketcher. And this card fell into a few more challenge catagories...
