Cutie Pie Purple

Hello folks, hope you are raring to go on this Monday morning!!

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my "Conkers" card last week. I apologise for assuming that everyone knows what they are, so for those of you that asked they are the seeds from a Horse Chestnut Tree. The game "Conkers" was traditionally played by children (sadly no longer allowed in most schools). A hole was drilled through the middle where a string was threaded and the idea was to smash your opponent's conker to win the game. It used to make for hours of fun!!

Anyway on to business...I'm here with my Cutie Pie DT card today.

 We are Perfectly Purple this time and from now on our challenges will be monthly so that gives you plenty of time to join in.

Here's my card...



The totally adorable image came from our sponsor Pink Gem Designs.

Those of you that visit often will know that my purple Promarkers are still very inky through little use as I am not a purple person. However my card was made for a certain lovely lady  (Annette) who is rather fond of this particular colour and celebrated her Birthday recently so I had a perfect excuse to try out the purple palette. So, little Chloe was coloured to compliment the Sweater Weather papers,
( one of which coincidentally had a lovely knitted pattern to echo her hat). Everything else came from my stash, flowers included which (like my ribbon stash) don't get enough use. I will try harder...promise!!

A challenge or two to enter...an unusually long list for a change in order to comply with Pile it On!!

Creative Fingers #52 - Anything Goes
Pile it on - 2 or more diecuts (SB Floral oval & standard ovals)
Suzy B's bloomin' Challenge #50 - Anything Goes + stripes
 (hope the knitting counts, if not feel free to delete me!!)
Milk Coffee - Lots of layers
Aud Sentiments #117 - Anything Goes
Dragon's Lair Design Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafting at The Weekend #6 - Anything Goes

Have a good day, see you tomorrow xx

Sarah, I have to say my striplet dies have been a good buy, sorry to keep putting them up in my blog but I do enjoy the elegant simpleness of these dies. To think this time last year I didn't own a die or cutting machine, how things have changed.
