Purple is back!

Hello everyone :)  Yep the purple is back!  Oh how I have missed my favourite colour .... but I must admit it has been challenging and fun using different colours.

I am now at 34 followers and I would just like to say THANKYOU!  I feel so special and am delighted that you like my creations enough to be a follower.  Your comments and advice are much appreciated and I am thrilled that you leave so many!

I wasn't going to make a card tonight ... I was busy colouring today for the next challenge at Crafting For All Seasons where I am on the Design Team (how lucky am I!).
Talking about Crafting For All Seasons have you been over and checked out the latest Bingo Challenge?  Its a fun one and I would love to see your creations over there.

Anyway as I was saying wasn't going to do a card tonight but I won't be able to make anything at home tomorrow night as I'm going to my first ever Class at the local craft store!  I'm really excited, it's my first class ever and we are going to make a Box Photo Frame with flowers on a vine.  I am going to use the cute photo of my gorgeous girl wearing my slippers (see previous post) and can't wait to see the result.

So back to my card ...... Ta dah ... here it is :)

I really really really love this card.  Yes I used the same image on last nights card and adored it!  She is a little pixie/fairy from Make It Crafty called Cici.  I generally colour two images if I'm happy with my colouring so that I have another one in the same colours.

So what do you think?

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-
Willow Sketchie - 25 August challenge - Sketch
Flutter By Wednesday #168
Make It Colourful - Ground Your Subject

Thankyou for stopping by.  I hope you get some time today to colour, stamp, scrapbook, create or do what you love.
