City Crafter - In a Jam


I chose this week's theme at City Crafter Challenge Blog  so I hope you like it and join in. The theme is - 'In a Jam - feature a fruit or a jam jar (mason jar) or both'.

For my DT card I used a Stampin-up jam jar stamp, a digi of a straw that I made into a cutting file, and a Lettering Delights citrus fruit SVG cutting file.

I've recently discovered that one of my favourite alcoholic drinks - Limoncello- can be made at home using vodka, lemons and patience. It's a twist on the saying 'when life hands you lemons,make lemonade' and I thought it'd be fun to send to someone who is unwell or has had a difficult time (and obviously doesn't have a drink problem , of course!).

I hope you will visit us at City Crafter , see the creations from our DT and guest Katarzyna, and enter the challenge.

Marina, your comment about your favorite drink Limoncello totally made me smile....considering my recent change in work situation I could definitely use a stiff drink once in a while ;)
Thank you so much for your sweet birthday card. It arrived spot on time :)

I'm not familiar with that cocktail but from your description of it it sounds like something I'd probably love too... Your card looks yummy and stylish and fun, and I love lots of yellow on cards, it's a color that always cheers me up seeing it,

Marina, I love the card and sentiment! The lemon slice looks like it could jump off the page and into my glass of water. Thanks so much for playing along with Retro Rubber this week! Hope to see you join us often.
