As my other half is away this week I get more time to play in my craft room.  I'm still half way through a major re-organisation EDIT and hoping to keep it a bit more tidy in 2012! (some hope :-) giben up now and hidden it all in a cupboard.

So this week at Less is More we are on week #49, Predominantly Purple
 I love purple so had a good old hunt through my scraps box.  I found this lovely handmade paper and used my new Triple Treat flower stamp embossed with WOW grape, sentiment and punches from my mega Stampin' Up Christmas order. the sentiment is actually straight but looks odd as I tried to straighten the photo. I always have photo problems as my craft room window is below the roof overhang over the terrace so I don't get much direct light.

  9. Hi Donna, I must say this is my favourite purple one! That background paper is gorgeous and I'm suffering from punch envy - you have the ones that I would love to own from SU! Sorry to hear you are rough with FM too at the moment - I definitely suffer more this time of year as I also have SAD! Right old bag of useless bones and muscles I am at the moment! Keep warm under your duvet - I'm on the sofa with the quilted throw and Eddy, my JR terrier, snuggled against me, looking at the blogs of other peeps as I can't make anything today me fingers are too swollen! Gentle hugs Karen x

  10. Love your super card Donna
    Thanks for sharing it with us at LCI and good luck with the challenge
    Hugs Laurie
