When life gives you lemons ...make lemonade!

Are you ready for the weekend?

Are you ready for school to start?

For me that's a mixed blessing,
as my grandsons will be in school all day,
as will their three foster brothers!!

BUT it will surely be quieter around here!!
LOL  ;)

I made this card using Mo Manning's
digital image "Lemons."

bag of lemons, the pitcher and spoon!!

Cheryl has this to say about Silly Sally:
" How could you not love her!
Sally is a little bit of a tomboy and a whole lot of sass!
She loves to do everything!
She's a definite nature lover and adores her little teddy bear.
Sally is a little mischievous at times too, but that's ok.
We all have an ornery side.
She's my kind of gal
. . .and I know you're just going to fall in love with her."
