TIOT in purples!

UGH!!!  so no school the rest of the week and not likely we will be gettin’ out of the house.  which could be ok but hubby is getting cranky!  he went to work this morning to get away from the house but will only stay a couple hours because we have around 10″ or so more coming today & tomorrow!!!  we dug out the deck and fire pit this morning so i threw some logs on and invited our neighbor over for pizza & smores and so the kids can all play together.

trev dug out the mailbox and we did get deliveries yesterday so my order of 12×24 paper arrived last night YAY!!!  i will be working on getting those packed up today but with no vehicle (kev went into work) and lots more snow coming it could be thursday before the mail gets out again!

good morning!

This week suzanne challenged us to use pinks, reds & purples on our designs. despite spending HOURS shoveling snow over the last several days i DID get to do a little crafting! i sat down intending to incorporate all three colors but then i ended up being all purple so i just went with it!

The LO of my card is Jen’s Sketch For You To Try…it is her first one since having the baby and there is a HUGE prize up for grabs!!  be sure to run over and check it out!

i found the border along the bottom and the upper flower oval design in the back pages of my Kaisercraft Lilac Ave 6×6 paper pad – how cool is that! i spritzed them and my cuttlebugged background (one of the Asian Bundle Folders) with my Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer to get a gorgeous, even, all-over shimmer. I added a few Kaisercraft Pearls in Lilac to the edge of the border and this wonderful Petaloo mulberry rose in Blush which i purpled up a little with my copic markers. The top oval has a couple cute little Prima Rosebuds.

My main image is Emma by Elisabeth Bell. i stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink & colored her with Copics. i used the white Inkssentials Gel Pen to do the highlights on her and the dots around the edge.

Pezzy might give this card to daddy for Valentine’s Day…

  1. Good luck with all that snow. We start getting it at noon today. We haven’t gotten mail since Friday, so I have to track it down today.

    I’m excited to see tomorrow’s post with all the photos.

    And I do have one question…what is your preference for the paper you use for your stamping & copic coloring?

  2. Beautiful card! The snow pictures are amazing! Good luck with all the snow!
