Papertake Weekly ,,, Lemon Zingy

PANCAKE DAY ,,, Woo hooo !! I love pancakes and traditionally I make them and pour over freshly squeezed lemon juice or orange juice and sprinkle sugar over too ,, yummy :-)
so in keeping with the day Dawny thought up this fab theme ,,,


We are sponsored by the lovely Peggy Loves Vintage, unfortunately I had already made my card before I thought to check and didn't have time to make another one, so sincere apologies xx

This House Mouse Citrus Bath stamp was one of the 1st ones I ever bought,,,, my fave tipple is G&T and this image is perfect for me !!! :-) I have used this stamp so many times isnt it CUTE !! I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edge with an orange chalk ink. The lemon paper is Kaiser Craft and the gingham is from Funky Fairys. The 'Cheers' is a Melissa Frances rub on and I added some gingham ribbon, some Star Dust Stickles and a few Robin's Nest Dew Drops to finish :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some fab cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge to see them :-)

Challenges :
Make It Colourful ,,, Colour + Shine
Charisma Cardz ,,,,, 4 legged Friends (3rd entry)
Colour Create ,,, 3 fruit colours from a photo ( orange, banana, apple ), I didn't see a lemon so a banana will have to do :-)
