Linda's Lemon Tree

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The current situation definitely makes sense of the phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," but in this case, when Linda Williams' new Lemon Tree Groovi plate arrived in my mail box, I instead immediately made this peaceful scene, using only some of the elements on the plate...

I'm yet to do anything with the other elements, but I asure you they are equally beautiful, and I'll show you ASAP.

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity clear parchment and Toffee Apple designer paper
Groovi Plates: Linda's Lemon Tree
Tools and embellishments: Clarity's A5 plate mate and brads, Pergamano #1 embossing tool, and Perga Color pens

#13 at NBUS - I'm utterly delighted that Darnell's Never Before Used Schtuff challenge now has a home of its own and has accordingly become monthly!
#114 AG at A Bit More Time To Craft

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.


  1. I didn't get this set, Em, but it is really so very pretty. Wish I could be enjoying a lovely picnic like that right now!

  2. I love how intricate everything is. From the lemons on the tree, to the detail in the umbrella! amazing card!

  3. This is just as lovely as can be, Em! I think your parchment art will become collectors items someday! Thank you for sharing at NBUS! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Hi Em this is a stunning card. I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  5. So peaceful, Em. I would thoroughly enjoy a picnic under that tree :-) Love your card, as always, my friend. Thank you so much for the sweet comments you have left on my blog. I’m slowly trying to catch up and thoroughly enjoyed browsing through your lovely projects. Stay safe and healthy!

  8. Such a lovely card! Your work always amazes me.
    I just posted on my blog (Yes! After about two months!) I posted some birthday cards that I received, but I forgot to post yours. I'm going to try and post it tomorrow. It was too lovely NOT to post!


I love to read your comments. Thanks for taking time to leave them!
