When Life Gives you Lemons...and PLEASE vote!

I am in love with this set, Summer Fun set from Sweet 'n Sassy. When I saw this pitcher of lemonade I knew that was the first stamp I HAD to use! It is the epitome of summer. I colored it in with my Copics and added Crystal Effects. I cut the pitcher out and added a small piece of ribbon with a couple of Doodlebug Posies. The paper is Junkitz. The sentiment is from the Summer Sentiments set.

Well, I get to meet my new 5th graders today. I only have them for a couple of hours and then I have staff meetings the rest of the day. I have a fairly large group this year....27 kids! I am just like a kid because I always get nervous the first day!

I am going to see the Chicago White Sox on Saturday! I'm gonna get me some cold beer and a hot dog! (Of course the weatherman is calling for rain.....)

And Lastly, PLEASE vote at the JustRite blog for me! I would really, really, really appreciate your vote! Thanks sooooooo much!!!!

Have a great weekend!

Great card, as usual! I think a pitcher of lemonade will appear in the 'fridge later today.

I can't beleive you already started with your kids. My students don't arrive until Sept. 4th. (I go in on the 2nd for PD). I know what you mean about first day nerves, this is my 15th year teaching and I still get nervous.

I was a sneaky thing and managed three votes for you. Good luck!
