Guest Blogger: Judi Sparks - Making Lemonade!

Hi, everyone! I am pretty sure I said in yesterday's post that I'd be back today, but I found this one in my inbox, and I can't stand NOT to share it with you! :D So, tomorrow it is. :D Have a WONDERFUL day - and be sure and let Judi know you're here, and that you love her! :D

I know we have all heard the expression that goes like this - "
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Well, that is what happened with this card. I had seen a card in the new catalog that really caught my eye. I am a very simple stamper, not too much "fru fru." This card features the stamp set Funky Four and I loved the way Stampin' Up! had done it. I wanted to CASE (copy and steal everything) it. I did not have the same sentiment but I knew I had one that I could use. So, I carefully used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line things up. I think that part turned out great. Then, as fate would have it I stamped the sentiment last and look what happened!

I stamped it upside down! What to do? Well, as I have said often enough to my kids and others that I teach..."if you mess it up, you have to dress it up." That is what I did. I took my mess up and did a few cuts and layers and voila! A fixed up card.

The lesson in this for you is simple, make the best of what you have each and every day. Use your blessings to touch someone today.
