A Quick Card.....


Every time I do a card that has anything purple on it, I'm inspired by a blog friend Selma Stevenson.  She loves purple and a lot of her cards incorporate this color.  I love purple, but seldom use it and I don't know why.  I needed a quick card and had just received a new Marianne designs embossing and cutting folder and so I began the process.  What color do I use behind the cut out part and what kind of flowers....well I came up with purple and then some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers tinted with Ranger Distress Ink and a few leaves from there too and the card is ready to go.  My new embossing folder came from Joan's Creations.  This is an Anja design and so elegant I think.  Years ago I used to purchase embossing stencils designed by Anja.  Now I can get the best of both worlds!  This could also be a Valentine card if you used pink or red behind this.....hmmm....maybe I will be showing you a red one soon!

So what are you doing today?  I have some house work to do today. I'd rather be playing, but sometimes you just have to do a little dusting.  Well I hope your day is a good one and that you are productive and maybe find a little time to create.  As always, remember to "Breathe"!

This is gorgeous Glenda. You have used one of my favorite embossing folders and of course I do love purple. Oh no, I feel the urge to go create something purple! Enjoy your weekend. I'll be posting the tutorial on how to create the rose buds today and maybe you will have time to try them.

This is just stunning. I find at this time of year, I can't get enough of anything floral. Maybe because my days have been comprised of keeping the wood stove going downstairs so that the pipes don't freeze! Looking forward to spring--but you're keeping me going for now with the florals!
Just had another catch up from the last week or so. I loved your memories of wash day!!
Happy Sunday. Hope today's restful!!
