Monochrome Purple

Happy new week everyone! It's a week of from school for the kids so a much needed break for them this week but I feel drained already and it has only been a few hours. LoL Philip has gotten a cold again and it's so typical when they have some time off and you can do things with them. Oh well, it will pass.

So on to this card post of mine. It's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Card Makers and this period we have the theme of Monochrome purple which is not my colour at all. But it might be yours! So this was a challenge for me and I had planed to sit it out but the suddenly remembered an old paper pad from Panduro with turquoise and purple designer papers. Lots of purple left and to be honest quite a lot of the turquoise as well. Why is that? Just buying and hording all the lovely (and not so lovely) designer papers? I did a BIG clean out during the spring and took to Willy's school but it doesn't show now that's for sure. I need to do something about my crafting room and that soon.

Ok, I think I got a little lost in my post here, back to the card. Well, actually I ended up making three Christmas cards in purple and white. Cheating a little with some silver as well. I used lots of things that has just been laying around like the gemstones from a Magnolia Ink Magazine, the silver ribbon that there is only a tiny piece left of, the designer papers that I am not too fond of and still hang on too.

A little bunch of cards to send to people that I know won't save their cards. Don't have to put that much of time to their cards, do I? But I do actually like how the cards turned out, it's just that they are purple! LoL I love the wonderful snowflakes printed on the dps they are stunning and one of the reasons I bought the pad and they did came in turquoise as well. Since I have quite a few left of these too, you just might get to see another version of these fast makes of cards. ;)

And the Ornament dies I bought last year and never got around to use even if they are really lovely. The dies saying Merry Christmas is from ROX stamps here in Sweden and they are stunning and such great quality, and just what I needed. There is so little made in Swedish with dies that every time someone makes a new one it's like, well Christmas. :)
