Family like an Orange


Here's my 16th postcard for The Craft Barn's Quotes and Lyrics Challenge where the words this fortnight are FAMILY and/or THING.   Quite a lot to choose from but again I went with the first quote that made me smile and popped an image into my head. 


I've sprayed my postcard with Citrus Orange, Citrus Lime and Golden Oak Inks in a Bottle and just mopped up a little extra green too.  The orange I made using a large solid Journalling Circle (from Oak House Studio) inked with orange and clear embossed. Don't you just love that orange peel effect from the embossing powder!  To finish I've added a few more circles and the quote from Letty Cottin Pogrebin - no, I've never heard of her either but it's a good quote.

Thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave a comment - they are always very much appreciated.
