Happy Monday everyone! This week our inspiration piece features the colors blue and lime – what fun!

So…I LOVE the card I made for this week.  When I went to blog it, I realized I used two pieces of paper that had Lemon Lime Twist in there.  Since I work ahead, I just noticed that.  So…just wanted to let you know that ahead of time…a little bit of retired stuff in there!
