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  ;)

Yes, I have another card to share with you today!

I made this card using Mo Manning's
digital image "Lemons."
Look at her struggling with that big
bag of lemons, the pitcher and spoon!!
Oops!  She dropped one. Uh oh!!
