CASology #80: Purple

It’s time to think in color!  This week’s cue word challenge over at CASology is PURPLE!  I wonder if you like this color?  My mother sure does and she was the inspiration for my card this time around!

Stamps:  Prickley Pear (Spring Scalloped Circles – sentiment)

I used an SU heart trio punch to create a mask for the hearts.  So simple!  I inked the three hearts in three different shades of purple, although, the smallest heart looks like more of a greyish purple to me!  Ah, well.  I found a simple sentiment to accompany the hearts and will send this card off to my mother this week!

Our sponsor this week is none other than the lovely Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps and they’ll be awarding the challenge winner with a variety of unmounted red rubber stamps from their store!  Be sure and visit the design team members’ blogs as well as our guest designer’s blog this week and then link up your own PURPLE creation by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CST)!


Another day of no school today due to the extreme cold!  We had an enjoyable day at home yesterday and today should be more of the same!  DD is turning 6 months old, so I should probably dig the camera out again and see if I can’t get a few photos taken for the occasion!  All four kids humored me yesterday while I took a Valentine’s Day photo of them.  I got some valentine photo cards ordered and now will impatiently wait for them!  Isn’t that how it always goes?!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Melissa, what a great idea to make your own stencil of hearts…such a soft, delicate effect!

    Love that stencil you created and how perfectly the sentiment fits with it!
