How goes it in Blogland today?  I'm ready for it to stop raining here...I'm a little tired of being ankle deep in mud.  Girl dog is a lot tired of not going on her daily walk; every time I open the back door and it's raining outside, she gives me this look like, "Well, make it stop!"  Ha!  I wish.

Enough weather whining.  You're here for the card.

Today we're all about the limes because of this color challenge at Cupcake Inspirations:

I translated that into Cucumber Crush, Whisper White, and Tempting Turquoise.  Yes, my limes are actually cucumber-colored.  Except Cucumber Crush doesn't look like the color of a cucumber to me, and I don't like cucumbers but I do like limes.

I'm overthinking this.

Check out the sketch from Stampin' Celebration:

I love the sketch but I wasn't really sure what to put for the star element in the upper left corner, so I went with a wee butterfly but I'm not sure it makes sense.

Anyway, that's it for me today as I need to get out and run some errands.  Hubs gave me the go-ahead to buy some new paper storage for all my 12x12 patterned paper, which is great because what I have already is falling apart.  I see an afternoon of organization in my future.  Cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Apple of My Eye, Perfect Pairings, Papillon Potpourri
Ink:  Cucumber Crush, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  Hexagon & Bitty Butterfly punches, rhinestones, Dimensional

p.s.  It has not escaped my notice that I've used the stamp set "Apple of My Eye" twice now and never made a card with an apple on it.  Ha.
