Happy Monday, friends! Well, you know what Monday brings, don't you? How about another recipe challenge. The Recipe Challenge blog hosts a different recipe challenge every week, and it is so much fun. Our challenge this week is Pink Lemonade. Now isn't that perfect for the first days of August when it's HOT! I know that many of you are having a REALLY unseasonably hot summer, so why not check out this challenge, play along, and share some of your favorite pink lemonade recipes. That would be COOL in so many ways!!! I used this adorable little House Mouse image from Scrapbook Store At Your Door, along with this gorgeous Pink Zebra paper from Glitz, which is also available from SSAYD. My daughter-in-law went completely ga-ga over this paper! She LOVES zebra print, and she informed me that her birthday card HAS to be made from this paper. :-)
I used my SU inks and an aquapainter to color this cute little mouse, and I added two layers of crystal effects to the glass to make it shiny. I also love my bling, so out comes the glitter for a frosty look to the edge of the glass.
Here's a closer look at the glass with the Crystal Effects. The tab on the side of the recipe was made with the wide oval punch folded in half, and I paper pierced the edge and used a white gel pen for stitching. Once again... more bling with the rinestone. Bling, bling, bling... it's a good thing!!!
Have a wonderful day, my stamping friends! May the Lord bless and keep you today and always!

Love Ya!
