Let's Celebrate Purple!

I've been thinking for a long time that Stampin' Up! was lacking in DSP with purple in it... I like purple. Well, this special on our Designer Series Papers this month (Buy three get one FREE) got me looking more closely to see what other papers I need... and I found this: Tea Party. I hadn't noticed it before- maybe too pastel for me as a whole, but each sheet individually is just lovely and of course they coordinate perfectly! I just needed to open my mind a bit and I am glad I did! Almost Amethyst has long been one of my favorite of the 48 colors so of course I had to use those patterns first!

This sketch is from yesterday's Mojo Monday challenge which I didn't have time to get around to.

Did you notice the texture on the card base? That is using the Texturz Plates and the Big Shot. I like how this pattern coordinates with the paper somewhat.

Well, thanks for hanging with me even though I've been gone a while. This time of year is tough to stay indoors stamping when the sunshine and yardwork are calling! In case you're wondering, the gymnastics recital went very well- I was such a proud mom and very impressed! I thought my daughter would have serious stage fright and maybe even refuse to perform, but she seemed relaxed and to enjoy herself. And my son's baseball team has finally been able to play their first and second games and won both. He is pitching some this year which makes mom a nervous wreck- but he seems to handle it well. I guess they are both growing up *sigh*.

Have a lovely, sunshine-filled day!

PS- You may have noticed my "Shop Now" logo is missing from my sidebar. That is because I regretfully had to cancel my SU website. No worries, that doesn't mean you can't order through me, it just means that I will do the work for you. To place an order please contact me via email (which I'll put over there now instead). Thanks for your understanding!
