Orange you glad I said yes! and didn't say banana?
Happy 26th anniversary to my fun-loving husband!
Hi, my friends! Glad you stopped by today - it's Inspired By time again, and this week, we have some juicy, fruity fun for you! You'll notice some fun colors for those fruits in our inspiration - anything goes with color this week if you ask me!
I'm going with a more traditional tone for the oranges, and think pink lemons would be pretty cool! I guess they do grow pink-fleshed lemons, but I sure haven't seen any. They'd sure be cool for pink lemonade! But I digress... here's my card:
I dug into my stash pretty deep today... this is an older set Summer Citrus from Wplus9 that still seems really fresh to me -
and happens to be in stock, and on sale, as are the dies!
HOWEVER - this sentiment is from
Concord & 9th, and was borrowed from my friend Bobby - perhaps
she'll share the name of it?
Suffice it to say it was a puzzle we had fun figuring out!
So will it be a puzzle for you to find inspiration? Or will you be
immediately inspired to play along? The latter, we hope! My teamies
have oodles of inspiration over at the IB blog - let's go!
Well, give your hubby a squeeze from me, and happy anniversary! Maybe I should hop on over to W+9 and get these stamps and dies since I NEVER seem to have any when I need them! I love orange...in any shade...and these just make me SMILE!
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! How wonderful. Hope you can do something fun to celebrate. Sending hugs your way. Your card is squeezably delicious! Love the oranges. And you can turn around and give your husband a nice squeeze, too. Thanks for sharing!
Love this sentiment, Michele! I'll have to check back and see if Bobby remembers where it came from. Your pink lemons are delightful and of course would make pink lemonade!
Happy Birthday, Michele's hubbie (yes, I do know his name but won't mention it here). Whatcha having for dinner? A big cake or pie, I bet.
Pink lemonade from pink lemons?...well, if they can make pink grapefruit why not lemons, too? Anyhoo, the card is so pretty and fresh...I'm really liking this color combo. It's yummy!
Happy anniversary to you both. What a great interpretation of the sketch (as usual). Those oranges look so juicy xx
Happy Anniversary Michele & Tom! Wishing you many many more! Your card is fabulous and you dug deep, but what a fun set! I hope I can find time to play along!
Happy Anniversary to you and your main squeeze!! Such a fun card! beautifully done!
Hi Michele ~ Happy Anniversary to you and Tom! I'm loving this 'sweet' card and yes, I'm so glad you didn't say banana :) I love your color palette and how you flipped the speech bubble for your sentiment! Really cute card!
I hope you and Tom have a great evening celebrating!!!
Happy Anniversary to you and your main squeeze! What a fun set this is and I like the speech bubble at the bottom of your design. Fabulous card, Michele!
Happy Anniversary to you both! Your card is both fun loving and freshly squeezed. So cute!!
Leaving the leaves uncolored gives this such a modern feel. Happy Anniversary!
The sentiment is from a set called "Hugs" at Concord & 9th. I think I bought it just for the sentiment although it has some fruit slices, a bear and more sentiments that I don't think I've used. It works so well with your oranges and lemons, Michele. I hope I find time to make a card for the challenge.
Happy Anniversary to you both! What a fun card to celebrate it.
Love the retro feel of this Michele, what a wonderful bright way to start my day!
Cute, CUTE card and I'm sure Tom LOVED it!! Especially the sentiment!! And glad you figured it out that Bobby had the stamp set, but wish it had been me...LOVE it!! And Happy Anniversary again!! 26 years is a loooong time! (Chris and I will hit 33 this year.) Hugs. :0)
Happy (belated) anniversary to you and Tom!! I hope you had a special day together. :-)
Love the speech bubble and the dimension of the orange of this bright and fun card!
Adorable card, and that sentiment is just a hoot! Your other half will enjoy this one!
Feeling the squeeze from here Michele. What a fun, colourful and fabulous card x. Happy belated Anniversary to you both x.
Happy Anniversary!! Your stamping is stunning... Fabulous card and fabulous design, oh and yes why not flesh toned lemons
such a sweet, delight mf.
