PND Lemonade Avery Friend Card

Created this Friend card with a Lemonade theme & lots of detail. Used a Paper Nest Dolls (PND) stamp, Lemonade Avery, I had won some time ago but not used before. Colored the stamp & then fussy cut it out with my Tim Holtz scissors.

I'm practicing more at coloring stamps. The hardest part of this card was punching the Fiskars corner punch. I have a few of the Fiskars corner punches and I found that I get 3 corners punch correctly and then mess up the last corner. I found that I can punch all the corners correctly if I punch it with the punch upside down so you can see where the paper is lining up with the metal.

I like lemonade and Summer time is lemonade time but for now here in Central TX the temps are in the 30s - 40s. Luckily we have not had any snow. There was some ice this morn. Forecast for this weekend is temps in 60s. Yeah!
