Good Luck

My husband asked me to make a card for a colleague at work who is leaving, she loves purple so that was my starting point.

As you can see, I decided to use yet another one of my Woodware Huge stamps, I used some papers from the LOTV Mary Fran collection to paper piece the letters and for the background. The border is a Fiskars punch and the flowers and card candy are from my stash.

This is my eldest son being 'helpful' when I was trying to take the photographs this morning - he was supposed to be eating his breakfast!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 261 - Paper Piecing
Moving Along with the Times Challenge - No Image
A Creative Romance Challenge 25 - Girly Creations
Card Mania Challenge 48 - Flowers
Digi Sketch Challenge - Sketch and/or Theme: Use a Stamp
Use Your Stuff Challenge 138 - Patterned Paper (stash:  papers/ flowers/card candy)

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

LOL - looks just like my two in the mornings. They would have to pull a face too ;oD. At least he helped out though. Extra brownie points for that I think. Your card is lovely and I'm sure hubby was pleased with it and the lady in question will be very touched to have a card made specially for her in her most favourite colour. Lx
