More new stamps in shades of purple ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was good and you are going to have a great weekend.  I have a shaped card to share with you and here it is …
Roughly DL size
A final look: love this one!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Card Mania Challenge #71 Anniversary
Great Impressions Stamps Challenge August Add A Sentiment
Penny Black Saturday Challenge Hot Summer Colours
Another two more stamps used from my list of new stamps: yay!
That’s Crafty Challenge Purple Passion

I have used more new stamps, a Penny Black stamp set, a lovely LOTV stamp, new WOW EP, very old stash (200mm square mat and lilac card), Wild Orchid Crafts roses and lots of white snippets.  Finding these mats that I purchased quite a few years ago has been a bonus!  I love to fold them in half and I get a lovely card shape that fits into normal DL envelopes: bonus!

I think I won the glove and sentiment stamp set from the Penny Black & More Challenge last year and the postcard stamp was from another win from Lily of the Valley, love this postcard stamp and I forewarn you it will be used a lot lol!

I have candy that is open world wide to new and old Followers.  I would love it if my current Followers were to add their name too, for the post with the link you need to go here.  

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend.  I will be around, hopefully, this weekend to check out all of the lovely creations I have missed and because I still have quite a few projects to post too lol!  I’m still in the midst of a ‘creative’ spurt but I’m being more careful and making sure I don’t overdo it!  In fact I already have my projects created, photographed and typed for Christmas Card Club this weekend: yay!!!  Have an awesome weekend ttfn Karen x
