Pink Lemonade


I love pink lemonade.  It's a sweet summer treat that tastes so good.  Tuesday it's supposed to be -25 degrees Celcius, with winchills in the -30's.  Super cold.  So I need to create my own sunshine.  

Thanks for all of your sweet words about my husband, you are such an encouragement.   I spent the afternoon and early evening with him, helped him shave that scruffy beard so he feels more human, and generally just had some time together.  When he stays ahead of the pain, he's doing much better.  Still not 100% with the fever that comes back now and again but, I can see he's getting stronger which I'm so grateful for.  I'm hopeful he'll be home later this week.  Though I haven't heard anything definitive yet.  I'd like the stability of having him home that's for sure.  No more being on the road back and forth all day.  

This is from Flourishes pretty set - On the Porch, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  Coloring is with Copic Markers, with some pretty accents in crochet velvet and seambinding from the Color Made Easy Collection, and some Candi.
