When Life Gives You Lemons

I told you the other day that colored pencil on Kraft is one of my favorites right now! I love the look and it’s so easy to do. And the colored pencil pigment just goes on so nicely to the  more open cardstock surface. I’m not really a yellow person but I’ve been drawn to it more and more lately. And don’t lemons just remind you of summer?
