Happy April Fool's! FCCB Cricut Crawl


Hopefully you have found yourself here after crawling along the FCCB April Fool's Cricut Crawl!  If you haven't checked out the DT's fantastically fun April Fool's projects, you should head on over there to start it!  So, my little card isn't a "joke", but it is an unexpected response from the usual addage of "when life gives you lemons".  And this is totally my philosophy as of right now in my life.  I know soda is horrible for you health wise, but to me it is my sanity on this crazy cancer rollercoaster my little family is on.  I LOVE Diet Coke with Lime, or as it is known in my house DCL.  When I was looking through my new cartridge Just Because Cards I was inspired to create this card from the "Lemons into Lemonade" phrase/cut and cut the glass image out of vellum paper.  I used the lemon cut from Simply Charmed for my lemons and limes.  The colorful diamond paper is from Echo Park's This and That Graceful 6x6 pack.  The green and white is from DCWV Nana's Kitchen mat stack.  The yellow and white polka dot paper on the lemons is from a Wal-Mart paper pack.  I inked around the edges of my sentiments, lemons, and base card with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink and popped up the lemons and sentiment on the front with some dimensionals.  I hope you are having fun on the crawl, and keep at it, there are still some fabulous projects ahead!

  7. Unexpected inside. I have to have my Diet coke too. Recently had some dental work and could not have carbonated beverages. After a few days I just had to have one so I let it set out and get flat so I could drink it. Desaperate right? kim Ogden
