Pretty in purple...

one of my favourite colours, and ages since I have used it.

Every week at my card class I like to try and introduce the girls to new tools or skills. Last week it was spirella, this week it is the use of border punches and ProMarkers. Some of the girls are now making cards at home but it is more difficult for them to buy materials here in Spain. Thank fully more of the internet stores are now dropping their exhorbitant European postage charges....I have to admit to getting cross when I order a die and they want to charge me 18 pounds!!!! I now use Joanne Sheen and Craft Barn who are brilliant. My only difficulty is getting good quality and paper...usually I have to bring it over with me in my suitcase. As I usually only travel with hand luggage it means I have to leave clothes behind!!!

Card Supplies:

Image and Greeting - Kan Ban.
Flowers - Woodware Punch Christmas Flowers.
ProMarkers for colouring. (Including the new glitter pens....lovely effect.)
Martha Stewart punch for border and corners.
Bling, Card and paper from stash.

Challenges entered :
Anything Goes # 58: Anything Goes.
Catch the Bug : Birthday.
Challenge up your life # 60 : Bingo- Purple, Lace (Lace Scroll punch used) Flowers.
For Fun Challenges : Anything Goes.
