****More new cards on page 2!****

After a few hours of scanner trouble (and a few days of procrastination), here they are!

Each of these cards fits inside one of my Altoids citrus sours tins so basically I have an awesome little lemon-lime shrine!

What time is it?!

Lots of bubbles. I made a yearbook page like this for first deadline and nearly got kicked out because I guess it wasn't low enough for our schools standards.

Shaving cream cards cannot be avoided. Ever!

Simple. Elegant.

Kinda fancy for permanent marker and Post-It notes.

A couple limes playing checkers.

A lemon tree.

All the proper necessities for a lemonade stand (minus the dixie cups, darnit! maybe they'll be added later)

A house painted like lemons!

More simple yet elegant nonsense.

Lastly, some homemade stamps on some cardstock. I use the foam sheet leftovers from my $1 Craftster challenge (checker board) for stamps by cutting them to shape and hot gluing them to the bottom of those tiny domes that you get toys in those machines at the grocery store. I also cut a ton of tiny lemons and limes from the foam sheets.

I plan to add more stuff like stuff about lemon drops, lemon bars, key lime pies, all that nonsense.
Comments please!

These are very funny.  The pics are a little difficult to see clearly - but the concept is fantastic!  Love em.

Bump. I finally got my scanner to work and posted new scans of the stuff from the tin. Enjoy!

That is awsome! It amused me (in a good way I swear!) I love shrines and little cards to go in them. I am planning on making one for my fiance. I think he will love it.

Anyone who speaks German should know I would like this from my username.  "Zitrone" means "lemon" in German.  Your little shrine is so cute.  Lemons and limes unite!!!!

Far out! I think lime in spanish is like limon but I think it has a funny dash over one of the letters that I don't know how to make!
