When life gives you limes...

Make Pie!

Sweet Tooth
paper by Flair Designs has truly inspired me with all the wonderful dessert images. I challenged myself to use one piece of this paper and come up with as many cards as I could. So far, I've come up with four and have another two cards in the works. It was a fun challenge, which had the side benefit of making me feel thrifty. However, that'll backfire since I've had more inspiration for even more cards. In fact, I'm thinking about making a set or two!

I used the Lime Slice small from justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet and colored the limes with a variety of Copic Markers. I added a bit of sparkle to the limes on the pie and pie slices with Spica Glitter markers. Sadly, I don't think you can see the subtle effect in this scan. Oh well.

Lime Pie is sometimes called Lime Tart, which made me think of the great Australian kit club, which just had their big July reveal. I don't know which of the kits I like best since they all look great. I definitely want one of them though. Decisions, decisions.

You can see and order these great kits directly from justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet. Click here to take a look! They'll ship from the US which will save you both time and money! Better hurry though since there are limited quantities.

Anyway, thanks for visiting today!


  1. Love this! I love lime! Lime kool-aide! Key lime pie- also yummy!

  2. Yum, this card makes me hungry. When's dinner?

  3. I love your lime pie card! You did a wonderful job coloring with the Copics.

  4. LOL! You are so clever to combine lime slice to lime tart! :)
