Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    I love your card, and Terri’s, too, they look gorgeous.
    Got to listen to the two Hobbit songs you chose, I didn’t realize Neil Finn (great musician!) had a song in it.

    Hi! I want to put your link party on my public google calendar. It will include the time it starts as far as I can tell (9 AM CST), your web address, and your rules as written (copied and pasted). If you could let me know if this is okay and correct, I would appreciate it. Also, if you have a specific time this ends I would appreciate knowing that, too.
