Less is More - Week 214 - Yellow and Green Colour Challenge

The current challenge over at Less is More is a colour challenge - the Spring colours of

I moved more towards Summer with this card:
I used:

- A6 white card blank

- snippets of SU green card stock (Old Olive) for matting and layering

- white card stock, one has the stamped image on which is from SU's Sale-a-bration 'A Happy Thing' stamp set. Stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and then coloured with just four different Pro Markers before being die cut using a Lil'Inkers 'Stitched Rectangle' die

- the sentiment was originally going to be 'When life hands you lemons - make lemonade' - but I quite like this version! Just produced on my laptop using the 'Purisa' font and then printed onto white card 

I'm gonna say it, so get your groans in  right now - 'easy-peasy, lemon squeezy' :)



  1. There's no groaning from me! I'm bringing the tequila!! Fun card with a great sentiment! Let's party :)

  2. Love tht sentiment, love the lemon image and love your last sentence!!!

  3. Amen, sister! Gosh, what could be more better for a yellow and green theme than a lemon??? You nailed this, Di!! Hugs, Darnell

  12. Definitely a better sentiment and I love your fabulous card xx

  13. GROAN..... is that good? Love the sentiment. I'm not sure about spring; I think this card jumps right into summer. It's fab though!

  14. I'm groaning :) Lovely card though, and I do like your version of that sentiment. I also like the shades of green and yellow you've chosen ... perfect! Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  15. Lovely card Di. I do like that you've printed the sentiment in green to match!

  16. Love the quote, Di - after all, who wants lemonade when they can have tequila? Lol! Great card, too. Thanks for your lovely comment, and I have to laugh because Beatrice has the knack of winning everybody over and even non-cat people love her! She's a real little character. She and my hubby simply adore one another. She can be happily settled on my lap, fast asleep, or enjoying a nice cuddle, but if she hears my hubby coming she's off me like a jack in a box and straight to him! A bit galling sometimes lol! Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and good wishes for my upcoming surgery this time next week.


  17. FAB take on the colours Di and you've just had me giggling like crazy over that sentiment. Well done you. Great card and thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
