you add color to my life.




purple

I don't use it much in my designs but I love my Martha chunky wool yarn so I was happy to incorporate the lavender color into my card:

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  paper:  studio calico  stamps:  paper smooches hot concoctions/blossoming buds/I heart art  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  paper smooches notebook basic die, Martha wool yarn


I'm playing along with the gals over at



Gotta love the Picture Perfect challenge...


Awesome inspiration...


I managed to use 3 Paper Smooches Stamp Sets:

Hot Concoctions
Blossoming Buds
I Heart Art

I've had the Notebook Basic Die for a smidge so I happily used that in today's card.

I wanted to share the 2nd bouquet of blooms that the kids gave me over the weekend that has become my profile pic (for now):


Aren't those pink peonies just beautiful?  They took their grandmother to the Farmer's Market on Saturday and picked these up for me {and that cute nautical notebook from the T$ spot!).

Thanks for stoppin' by!!!
