Purple Rain

Hasn't the weather turned cold...and wet ...and miserable?

It certainly has with us, so no outdoor projects will be undertaken today.  It's also an exam day for Colin again so I'm not wanting to be too noisy about the house...

So what does that leave me able to do?  Why make cards obviously!



So today's offering uses one of the gorgeous new Lili fairies - Fluttering, available here.  Just love these new releases, so had to use one on todays card.

I followed the SSW2 sketch, used Doodlebug papers, coloured by Promarker then finished the card with Pippa butterflies, glossy accents, ribbons and a sprinkle of Glamour dust.

Challenges;
PB@Allsorts - Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes
Ribbon Girls - Lilac & Purple (Daisy charm from my Ribbon Girl Prize)
Papertake - Oh so cute
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - Use Die Cuts - Pippa Butterfly
Allsorts - Purple Passion
Cutie Pies - Cute, bring on the bling - glamour dust, glossy accents & a charm
LOTV - Fairies
SSW2 - Super sketch


Finally, I'd just like to thank The Ribbon Girl for giving me a £10 prize in their yellow challenge a month or so back, below are my goodies I selected for my prize,


and with the LOTV voucher I got the sentiment tags I've been wanting for ages.

Thanks to both companies, Jx
