Dear Lemon Lime Twist,
I owe you a big fat apology. . .
While I initially wanted to gouge my own eyes out with dull lawn darts upon seeing your blinding bright neon-ness in the new catalog, I now realize how insensitive that was of me. I am not proud of the fact that I wanted to file you somewhere between Mello Yello and Mt. Dew. I mean decide already! Are you yellow or are you green? You have to be aware of the fact that you are the color of a toxic biohazard label. Surely, that can't be easy.
It is true that I unfairly judged you without even opening your shiny cellophane wrapper. Yup, I did that. I even gave you away to my BSF (Best Stamping Friend) Laurie, without a second thought. She was Lemon Lime green (hahaha) with envy.
But, then I got knocked off my (Soft Suede) high horse and bought the new Lemon Zest stamp set. Talk about life literally giving you lemons. . . I had a few options here, 1) Make lemonade, 2) Chuck them right back or, 3) Keep them - they're free lemons (er. . $34.00 plus tax, shipping and handling).
So, keep them and buy Lemon-Lime Twist ink, marker, refill AND cardstock all over again is exactly what I did. As it turns out, me paying twice for what I gave away too prematurely was my punishment.
The Moral of Today's Story:
Try new things. If you step outside of your comfort zone, you just might find some lemon-lime magic!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
