When Life Hands You Lemons...

May is Christy's month to host the Paper Dolls challenge and when I first read it I through, well that leaves me out...I don't have many digital images let alone know how to use them and when I was cleaning my craft room some time back I pitched all of the pattens and templates for paper piecing.  With Cricuts, dies and so many other ways to cut images I thought why would I ever need these again...that is until I read Christy's challenge.  Then I remembered that there was one website that had some wonderful digital images you can buy and print on your printers at home and her images are just so festive and whimsical.  I made a set of cards a while back using her adorable little "bees".  The name of the site is Pink Petticoat, and Liz is just amazing, she even has some fabulous free stuff too and that is what I used to make my card for this challenge and here is the link.
I was so impressed at how beautiful the images print but what really blew me out of the water was the full color sheets of card stock. I used PTI's White card stock and you would never know that this paper was printed at home, just fabulous! So here is my card and thanks for taking a peek!

Thank you so much Christy for your file-to-file challenge, you really made me think outside the box on this one and it was so much fun to do.


  1. I just LOVE it! Maybe I'll have to try a digi paper too now... Love the cut out the words & the little sneak of pink. :)

  2. Love your lemony card, really gets me in the mood for homemade lemonade and sun tea. I also love those adorable finger puppets!!

  3. Fun card Kim! That really is great paper. Hard to believe it's digital.

  4. Very cute, Kim! Makes me want to open a lemonade stand. It's perfect for summer.
