Peaceful Petals in Purple - take two!

What an exciting week it's been! Sale-a-bration has begun, the fabulous new seasonal catalogue has launched and I've been up to my eyes in gorgeous new stash!  I made this quick card yesterday for CASology's Purple challenge but, you know, I wasn't that happy with it. So I've had another go today - come and see:

This one was made when my youngest son came home from school. He wanted to give me an account of his day so he made us a cup of tea each and I got out the fussy cutting!

Isn't this bloom from Peaceful Petals a beauty?!  I've added the tiny pearls for a little extra detail too.

This is the 'thank you' sentiment from the set - very handy! I'll start by saying thank you for your indulgence while I get my purple moment sorted out!

Here's what you'll need to make this project
Stamps: Peaceful Petals
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder classic inks plus Pear Pizzazz marker
Card stock: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant
Other: Basic Pearls, Envelope Board (for corner rounding), paper snips, stamp-a-majig

You can order from my online shop any time, day or night,
but if you have any queries, or prefer to speak to me, I'm always happy to help.
You can contact me by email or phone on 01280 820593.

So it's Friday and I have no idea how that happened! Does anyone else feel as if someone's pressed the fast forward button?! It reminds of when I used to do exercise videos back in the day. You had to rewind them to try and work out what on earth the aerobic queens were up to and it always looked as if the ladies were learning how to fly!

Have a fantastic weekend and I'll see you very soon,
