If life gives you lemons ....

..... make lemonade!
It's time for a new challenge over at Perfectly CAS, here is my inspiration based on this month's theme.

I've had this set for awhile waiting for the right moment to use it. With all that's going on at the moment, I thought hit hit the nail on the head, of course you could add G and T instead! The set is from Penny Black, called Homemade and features these cute mice.

Rather than use Copic markers, I decided to colour these small, cute mice with Zig watercolour markers ,before stamping the sentiment and embossing with clear EP. I kept the design and sentiment in the bottom left corner to keep the design CAS. If you are unsure of the definition of CAS, here it is.

Simply put, keep 2/3rds of your design free of anything!
