got lemons?

Earlier this year we bought a lemon tree.  We just picked one that looked “good” and healthy.  It said it was a Ponderosa Lemon – which meant nothing to us, but over the months we’ve been watching the tree bloom, then start to grow fruit.  And grow.  And grow.

The lemons are now the size of  large avocados and are nowhere near ripe.  We looked up Ponderosa lemons on the internet and found out they are the GIANTS of the lemon family.  So, we’re not sipping fresh lemonade just yet,  but we are looking forward to it this fall.

And if you have any good lemon recipes send them my way – I have a feeling I will be needing them!

This card is for today’s “ways to use it” challenge, which called for using yellow!

I stamped the image in Memento London Fog and colored with copic markers.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.  All images are from Flourishes.

Copics used:  Y15, Y13, Y11, Y0000 for the lemons and YG00, YG13 and YG17 for the leaves.

I sponged the main panel with Memento Dandelion ink.   The white background was pressed out with the Holiday – Thanksgiving plate from Letterpress.  Both white panels are letterpress paper.  The green and yellow papers are (i think) from SU.  A Papertrey die was used for the scallop border on the right side.

The  pretty white and yellow gingham ribbon is from Michaels.
