Limeade Kit

When we came home from the hospital after Claire's surgery a lot of friends from our church and neighborhood were so kind to bring us dinners. Well, one family came over with a pitcher of homemade limeade. I had never had limeade before and I just loved it...it was so refreshing! I told them how much I loved it and they brought over 9 more limes along with the recipe. I pretty much crave limeade every day now (perhaps we'll plant a lime tree in our backyard!)


I love the color of limes. So that was my inspiration for this next kit. I am also including in the kit a 4x6 card of the recipe. Enjoy!

Claire update: Her surgery went well and she has been seizure-free for 12 days now!!! We are home and doing well. I keep my personal blog pretty updated about what's happening if you ever feel like checking in. Thanks to all for your prayers and words of encouragement. We have definitely felt unseen strength.

Thanks for the beautiful kit! My dad would always make limeade at our Sunday dinners. I hope and pray that things will continue to get better with Claire and your sweet family. May you have the spirit of Peace with you as you continue on your journey.

What a pretty kit!

Once I get on my laptop I'll download it and make a few layouts with it! The colors are amazing!

I'm glad that the church has been so helpful and supportive. At times I've wondered if I could ever handle life without them during the trying times.

I hope that Claire gets better and I keep her in my thoughts and prayers!

Thank you for another beautiful kit. I love your work. My husband and I have been following Claire's progress, since he had brain surgery the week before she did. I can't imagine going through it as a parent. So glad her seizures have stopped, that's wonderful news.

miraclesoflife said...

Thank you so much for the kit. I have never had fresh limeade either. I have made fresh lemonade. It is so good! I can't wait to try the limeade!

I have been following Claire's progess and praying for her health and your peace during this time. God is so Good. Have a great week! Thanks for the kits!

Just wanted to let you know I'm praying for your little one and your family. How wonderful to see she is doing well. It's so good to see you back and with a lime freebie no less (which is fabulous)! I, too, love limes (color, flavor, whatever) and will definitely be trying this recipe. Thank you so much and you will continually be in our prayers!

So glad to see you posting again! TYVM for the lovely new kit. I prefer limeade to lemonade...try some with a bit of 7Up & some "juice" from a maraschino cherry jar - YUMMO!
So happy to read about Claire's success - PTL! Will keep y'all in my prayers.

Shawn said...

So glad to hear that Claire is doing well. I can't believe you were able to put together such an awesome kit with all that's going on right now.

I hadn't realized you were in AZ too. I live in Peoria, and I've had several trips to Phx Childrens Hospital when my nephew was born with a serious condition. He's in high school now but I'll always remember how great they were there.

I can also relate to the computer calling me, lol!

Lisa said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your kits. I check your website once a week for new designs. Thank you for all your hard work. I can't wait to try the limeade. I am a sucker for it myself.

sdrgw6 said...

I,m so glad to see you designing again. Not for the free kit, but because it's a good sign that precious Claire is doing so much better. I downloaded the new kit yesterday, and my 12 yr. old loved it. She loves limes and lemon just sliced. We will be learning digital scrapbooking together, and I know we'll enjoy your kit.

Thank you & GOD BLESS

Thank you so much for being so generous with your talent. I love your work and have been busy downloading! I was really inspired by the lovely colours of these papers. I am not a scrapper, digi or otherwise! but love making cards so I printed out some to make this card. I hope you like it!

Thanks for the beautiful kit. I used it to create the header for my blog. You can see it here: http://twistedcitrus.blogspot.com/ the background I got from somewhere else and they obviously used the same kit.

Again thanks for creating this kit.

Hey Summer. Love your stuff! How did you do the green fuzzy around the edge of the recipe card? I've been playing around on photoshop and can't figure it out. Can you fill me in on your secret!? Thanks!
