Happy Monday everyone and I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. 

I indulged in a little craftiness last night, I deserved it after all the gardening I did!! 

My regular visitors will have noticed that I rarely use purple, it's not that I don't like the colour, I just find that my purple creations never quite pass muster. However, I bought little Cobweb and, as if by magic 
( or my lovely DT mate Annette waving her magic wand in Devon!!) I'm cured...a purple card that I am happy with!!!

I coloured her with SN pencils again to match the Nitwits papers, the ribbon and button came from  Annette actually (see, she has been trying to convert cure me for a while!! ). I used LOTV #2 sketch again. 

I was inspired by these fabulous challenges

Allsorts #259 - Purple Passion
The Ribbon Girl - May Colour Challenge Purples/Lilac
Penny Black & More - Anything Goes
LOTV - Fairies (Second entry)

Must dash...see you soon!! xx

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Sarah! Your purple creation is fabulous! I know what you mean about some colors not doing exactly what we'd like in a creation - or perhaps some colors photograph better than others, too. But this little darling is gorgeous! Sweet and fun! hugs, de

Annette said...

hahaha, hmmm, did I mention that I love Purple!!! I'm glad you've found your cure because this one's a beauty. I love her. I'm unfortunately still waiting for my LOTV fairy order. I do hope it's not got lost as it's over a week now. :0(
