Just A Note...CR84FN29 64

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, May 21, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , ,

Hi there! I'll be driving home today with my hubby from the weekend trip to California. Thanks so much to all who played along with last week's bold and bright color combo and thanks to all who take the time to leave such kind comments :) So many pretty entries! This week we are playing with pretty shades of Plum. The beautiful color graphic was created using photos courtesy of Martha Stewart.com
I love any shade of purple so my hubby surprised me with some gorgeous Tulips on Mother's Day :)
 Love the various shades:
 So delicate and beautiful:
 My sweet sister Tina has been taking care of my little 4 legged furry friends, Gretchen and Griffin while we have been away so I made her this Thank You card. I started with some pretty My Mind's Eye patterned paper that is retired but still can be found at the local craft store :)
I cut a few of the PTI postage die cuts followed with stamping the images. I wanted to tuck a little note inside the mini envelope so I first stamped the Just a Note sentiment, embossed then trimmed to size. Added a pretty lavender Prima flower, some foliage and a sweet tag.
Thanks for visiting today :) Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some jaw dropping inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs:
