Joanna Sheen GDT :)

Morning everyone! 

Please excuse any bad quality photos I take for the next little while, we just got new lights in the kitchen and I'm trying to get used to them! You see, we had these ugly strip lights in the kitchen before, very unsightly, but fantastic for taking pics of my cards :P Now we have fancy little rows of spotlights, but they're just not half as good for taking photos haha, I can't complain though, new lights were long overdue, our kitchen doesn't look quite so like a warehouse any more :D

It's my niece's christening today as well, and having had five christening card orders I can tell you now, finding enough relevant images on time was pretty difficult! So they'll be going up on here soon too - along with a picture of the epic cake I made for the tea and biscuits after the church service :)

Anyway, enough rambling. I'm GDT over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog today! Very exciting altogether :D Thank you for having me!

The theme is CITRUS COLOURS, so the first thing that came to my mind was lemonade, so I used this adorable lil guy :D

Ribbon - from my stash
Umbrella - "borrowed" from my parents' drinks cupboard :P 
Sentiment - printed off on the computer 
Corner - Whimsy Corner Die Set
Border- Martha Stewart Border Punch
Medium - Promarkers
Everything else - heaps of Glossy Accents and Stickles

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Old, new borrowed or blue (Old: ribbon, new: image, borrowed: The umbrella!, blue: the sky and the ice cube :D)

Thanks for looking :)
