Hello Dear Friends!
Today I was in the mood to just create something in my favorite color combination ... purple & green (or for that matter, purple and ANYTHING!) lol
Here's what I came up with . . .
I've actually pulled out a couple of dies that I bought and never used. Do you ever do that? I see a die I just HAVE to HAVE then once I get it I put it away and forget to use it ... is that considered hoarding? LOL
Anyways, I love how this came together. Of course I'm sure you recognize the background paper as Graphic45 'Secret Garden' and the bird image comes from the Graphic45 'Time to Flourish' 8x8 paper pack. A short while back I spent a day making homemade flowers and this is my last purple one ... guess I'd better get busy making a few more for my stash (in purple that is ... I still have other colors).
Here's a couple of close ups ...
A few challenges to share in today are:
2 Crafty Girls Challenge - Vintage
2 Cute Ink Digital Stamp Challenge - Bird Theme
Artistic Inspiration Challenge #131 - Anything Goes with a Twist of Swirls
Card Mania Challenge - Pearls and Swirls
Crafty Boots Challenge - Ribbon or Lace
Thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by to see what I have to share with you today! I hope you find inspiration in my work ... I know I find so much inspiration from all of you!
Have a fabulous day and please stop back again real soon. Now I'd better get outside in the flower beds ... I think that's the weeds I hear 'taking over!'
As always . . .
