Purple Hello card

Hi there friends ! I hope you are all doing ok? I am back with my very first card for 'Less is More' in the new year. This time 'LIM' have switched to a two weekly format (very sensible) I think. Also it's another colour challenge and 'Purples'.

I do love the colour purple ;) ........almost as much as I love pink.....and blue. Those are my 'go to' colours as you all probably guessed by now lol!  Ok so here is my card, I used various shades of purple then used my die cuts and a stencil for the background. A touch of my usual sparkle and a few sequins and job done !

Thanks for your visit and of course ......enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)


LIM, CAS, Purple, MFT

My Favorite Things stencil English Brick Wall
Die-namics dies Big Hello

I also made this yummy Cheesy Lentil pie to be shared with our son and his family.....our son particularly does love a nice pie! It was so tasty too....sorry if you are now feeling hungry as you read this!

Pastry base, lentils, onions, carrots, peas, cheese inside and topped with thinly sliced new potatoes and more cheese. I served it with lots of green cabbage, sweetcorn and sugar snap peas ;)
