After the kids' lemonade stand this weekend, I wanted to make a card for one of our neighbors who supported the kids and I enjoyed catching up with too.
The kids made enough money, with a little matching funds from Mommy & Daddy to donate $95.00 to www.imms.org in support of taking care of the marine life affected by the Gulf oil spill.
This little House Mouse stamp that I picked up when I was up in Toronto, teaching at Bizzy B's, seemed appropos to use for the card.
A little Copic coloring is always fun too of course. I colored my lemonade with Y00/Y21/Y32. I colored the glass with N0 and BG0000, since the illustrator was kind enough to draw the glass with 'thickness' and dimension. I colored the mouse with E31/E34/E55 and R00/R20, and pushed a little overlay of W2 over the top to grey up the mouse a bit.
I cut out the frame from the Webster's Pages papers and layered them with some solid cardstock in pastel colors.
Silver self adhesive decorative stud corners embellish the two opposite corners.
Finally a newspaper punched flower is spritzed with Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist and stemmed with a bit of olive rick rack. I topped the flower with a pin button from American Crafts, and adhered the sentiment, printed on a clear label.

The weather is considerably cooler today, at only 80 degrees. I'm going to do a quick check of the radar map (since we had lots of lightening storms yesterday afternoon) before taking the kids to the pool.
Have a great day!
