Feelin' Purple

It's Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidaaaaaaaaay!  Whoop whoop!

Morning all, and Friday at last, hurrah, the weekend starts in nine hours, and can't get here soon enough.  This horrid shingles virus hasn't gone completely yet and I am absolutely shattered by the end of each working day, so you can imagine how tired I am by the end of the week.  A lot of sleep is on the menu for Saturday and Sunday!

Anyhoo, I am bobbing by with my second outing for October for Lili Of The Valley Design Collective.  You might have noticed a lot of purple featuring in my cards of late, and this one is no different.  I blame that Mr Holtz and his new Wilted Violet Distress Ink, it is just so yummy.

Of all the Odd Dog characters from LOTV, I think this one, Mug Of Tea, is my favourite
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers (more purple) from LOTV/Nitwits Promises pad (patterned and solids)
Papermania enamel dots (purple, lol), MFT double stitched rectangle die, and the twiddly bits poking out from under the sentiment are two cuts of a Whimsy corner die back-to-back

So, that's me for today.  Keep an eye on this space for some exciting Lili news coming soon.  Also, if you weren't already aware, Lili have recently moved (same site, different address) and will shortly be opening a COFFEE SHOP!  Oh how I wish I could pop upto Leeds and back in a couple of hours, lol.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Fab card as always hun hope all that sleep will leave you feeling a bit better , they say its the best medicine so hope it does the trick for you. I think Mr Holtz will get blamed for lots of crafty things but somehow don't think he'd mind too much.

It's unfortunate that the after effects of shingles can linger for several months Squirrel, I hope yours are soon a thing of the past...hugs
Wonderful card, superb colouring, and a delightful image :o)

Really wish you were feeling better honey. It's just not fair that you're still suffering. Wish I could wave a magic wand for you. Talking of magical, I love your pup. This was one of my faves from the release, and you've also used one of my favourite paper pads too. Lovin' the purple sweetie.

Kat W said...

You can never have too much purple (or pink!) so bring it on! These papers are sooooo yummy anyway and definitely some of my all time faves :-) Fabulous colouring too...hmmmm, I think I need to ink up this stamp!

I hope you got some good sleeps in over the weekend and are feeling fully recharged :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
