Wish you were here

Good Morning. I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

I love challenges because they can take you out of your comfort zone. I was trying to figure out what to play with yesterday and started going through some challenges to get inspiration. A couple of them where Purple themes. I love purple so I though I would go with that. It turns out coloring and mataching with just purple is hard. I also wouldn't pick this DP without specifically looking for some with mostly purple.

I love this image but need to find a good sassy saying for it. I also couldn't think of anything to print out. The best saying I could find was too large for the card so I went with Wish you were here. I also wish my copics matched a little better but overall I like the way this card came out.

I found the following challenges

Friday Sketches - I always like their sketches.

Sew Many - Purple and White with a touch of black. My touch of black is the buttons and top of boots.

Secret Crafter -Inspiration - the inspiration I got was the color - Purple and White

KL Stampling - Use Nesties or punches. This was easy. I love my nesties that I used for the ovals and the side rectanges. I used an EK success punch for the corners.

Charisma - Fruity Colors - My sister and I were talking about food yesterday, specifically grapes which I kept thinking about while making this card.

Hand full of Stamps
- Swirls - I was going to punch some swirls for this card but decided I wanted my swirls to be a little different so I used the pearls to make the swirl.

Allsorts - Hearts and flowers. I bought these prima roses yesterday at my LSS with the last of my gift certificates from XMAS. I had not intended to put a heart on the card but I wanted to fill the blank space in the saying and the small heart fit perfectly.

Daring Cardmakers - What's the point - okay...I love the theme of this challenge and sometimes I get in this wierd corney mood. My points are her hair and the fact that I love how her feet "point" into each other. Sorry if this is too corney but it's the mood I'm in while writing this.

Thank your for stopping by and thank you to everyone who leaves comments. I really love reading them.

CS: SU Pale Plum, Perfect Plum
DP: ??
STAMPS: Sugar Nellie
