My love for the purples.....

The weekend is here yehhhhh.... this gives me some time to get into that craft room and do some creating! Last friday I was so excited when my shipment of flowers came in...I had been waiting for so long. I still need to learn the art of flower arrangements but I am having so much fun practicing. For my card, I used one of my Hanglar Stanglar images.... I wanted to keep the colours nice and soft so I used my lyras on her.

Be sure to pop by for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge tomorrow. I am so excited to be their guest designer for this month. How cool is that. They are changing their challenges to every week instead of every two..so lots of fun!
