Purple Friends

Squirrel, Annette and Jayne have a little challenge on Squirrel's blog here: to make something with the theme of friendship and to include purple.

I have had this card made for quite a while but left it in my "wip" tray as I thought it needed something else .. .. but knowing that Squirrel is a fan of the CAS style, I thought to myself - 'twill do!

The image of the little girl and her teddy best friend is from an old clear Kanban set I've had ages.  I coloured with Copics and added touches of sparkle to her dress, then added the stamped hearts, coloured them purple and glazed over the top.  Here's the card:

A CAS style for me with just a piece of purple patterned paper from my stash with the faux embossed stitching lightly inked with purple then backed with purple card, and a lighter shade of purple used to die cut the mat for behind my image.  The two Marianne Design dies are LR0112 for the mat and CR1248 to cut out my image.

It's been a busy weekend with visitors, so I am taking it easy and slowly getting back into craft and the computer - been away from it since Friday so not sure if there are any challenge themes I could enter with this card, will have to browse .. .. ..

Ah - Crafty Catz want you to use an old stamp so that's one!

And thank you to Sarah for letting me know that the Cutie Pies are looking for cute and girly, and also to expand their DT - much as I would like to apply, I am aware that things could change rapidly here at a moments notice with Mum, and I still can't print out digi images onto my favourite 300gsm card I like to colour on, so it's not fair on the rest of the team.  But, I'm open to guesting on a blog challenge if anyone wants me!
