A Little Lime!

Busy busy busy.  Things are crazy busy around here but we are getting better with our school schedule which makes the day go much smoother.  The boys are loving their lessons and I enjoy the one on one time I get with them during school time.  The littlest is adjusting well.  He's used to me dropping everything at his request and wasn't so sure what to do the first time I said, "In a minute".  I don't think I've ever seen such a pout but he's my baby and my last baby at that.  That means he's used to things going his way.  Despite the craziness, I'm finding spots here and there to make cards and other craftiness and that helps relax me a little.

This weeks Play Date Cafe challenge was right up my alley.  My favorite color since I can even remember has been lime green.  At one time, I had almost every room in the house painted a shade of green but then my husband put his foot down.  No more green walls for me but I still have pillows, vases, plates, curtains....  :)  So here's a look at the inspiration and my card!


Oh wait...that's not the inspiration photo...but it is the right colors and it IS super cute!!!  My little man learned to drive a Powerwheel yesterday!  :)

Cuts:  Arrow (Lori Whitlock)
Paper:  True Black, Simple Chartreuse, White (PTI)
Misc:  Foam Tape (Scotch), Silhouette Cameo
I'm also going to toss this card in the mix over at Moxie Fab for the Card Design Handbook:  Movement Challenge.  Can you get more movement than from an arrow?  :)
