Green is the color of my true loves eyes

Green is the prime color of the world,
and that from which its loveliness arises
- Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Good morning!
WOW! Can you believe we are half way through the year already?

In less than 5 months, my husband and I celebrate 30 years of marital compromise. (And if you are wondering, yes - his eyes are green)

After that the Holidays come marching in and shortly after that I will leave for Japan to help my daughter pack up her apartment for her return to the United States after living abroad for 4 years.
Dates that seemed so far away are now almost upon us.

Of those dates ... this saddest is this one as it is my last challenge as a Designer for the CAS Challenge at The Outlawz. Personal challenges and the need to spread my wings has driven me to this decision. But I leave much richer in friendships and growth.

The Outlawz was the first place I ever had the nerve to enter a challenge and then Colleen asked me to join the Design Team. Firsts all around and remembered with a full heart. Although no longer a part of the Design Team, I will always be a part of The Outlawz as it is a part of me.

The Sponsor this month is Fresh Brewed Designs and the challenge is to create a CAS card or project that uses the color green.

Here is my 5 x 7 card. I used the #96 BEEE-utifulBee from Fresh Brewed Designs. paper piecing her dress, shoes and purse.

Such a fun image!
