Two's Company

Hello friends. I hope that you had a good weekend. It was Hubby's weekend off so we walked a lot, did a bit of repair work on Surprise's stable and ate out on Sunday which was a treat. It was nice to spend some quality time together outside of our hectic routines which seems to be commonplace these days!!

Anyway, I have a little card to share with you. It took me a week to complete but I was determined to play along with some challenges, particularly one inspired by
A Gem Of A Challenge,  which is currently spots and/or stripes.



The sweet image is one of Lili of the valley's digital images called Two's Company. I found the papers in my stash, they are double sided card stock that, I believe, were by  Creative Expressions many years ago. Lilac and purple shades are not ones that I regularly use but I became reacquainted with said colours when Bowie  chewed  got hold of my Promarkers colour chart and I had to download and re-colour another...thanks Bowie!! I think I shall be using them more often now!!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope the coming week will be a good one xx

Some other challenges
