Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy card using Lemon Zest by Stampin’ Up! This Lemon Zest card looks like a picnic to me!  Using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder and the lemons really says summertime!  And you know what they say…When Life Gives You Lemons!

As I am writing this post I am having one of those Lemon periods!  My husband fell and had to have stitches on his forehead then that same night our Air Conditioner went out and living in Southern Arizona it got pretty hot!  Perfect for having some Lemonade!  I mean it is what it is, right?  So this card made me smile and I sure hope it brightens your day too!
