MC Dec/13 - Lemons - The Secret to Happiness

As usual - BIG GRIN - I got a new stamp and was itching to use it. It's called "Logs" and is a background stamp from Impression Obsession - but I didn't see logs (well I did but) I saw orange and lemon slices... ROFL.

http://www.yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2013/MCDec13_Lemons_TheSecretToHappiness.htmlLove the way it turned out. I stamped it a couple times, once to make oranges, but I don't have any orange stamps or quotes, so set it aside. Then once just as the stamp, coloring, inking and embossing with variations. That's for another day too...

I also was itching to do a bit of calligraphy and this lemon tree song was going round in my head, so had to look it up just to make sure I had the words right...

Anyway to see more details and descriptions etc, just click on card image and enjoy.

I'm using a quote stamp, which I especially find true, from Quietfire Design.

And it fits for these challenges:
