Purple Fun...

Happy Monday everyone!  I am so glad I got a chance to craft this weekend.  My niece's birthday is coming up this Saturday and so I wanted to make some cards for her.  One is for my mother (her grandma) and the other one is from us.  So this first one I decided to make a gatefold card.  Something simple.  I used my nesties to create the front design, colored with my copics and used the cute flirty Anya.  Her favorite color is purple...I added a pretty purple flower and some bling too.  Here's what it looks like...
this is what it looks like once it's opened...
On to my next card.  Here I created a shaker easel card.  She was so fascinated by my shaker checkbook covers that I made for Taelyn's teachers, that I thought why not make her a shaker card.  I used everything purple...DP, beads and colored her with my purple copics...V20 & V25.  I hope she enjoys it.
Well that's all I have for now.  Hope you have a wonderful week!  I hope to create more and be able to post more often.  Thanks for the support and for stopping by!  Till next time:  Remember take it day by day and stop to enjoy the scenery!

Be Blessed,

Love the new look - looks really summery....Mines is due for an up do was it easy for you to just switch over?
BTW both cards are simply gorgeous... I've still need to attempt those shaker cards yet.. I do have the beads but haven't got to doing one yet... And those gate fold cards are one of the fun and quick card to make too... love both images...
Enjoy your rest of the new week~


How neat that your niece likes PURPLE too! Love the way you coordinate your purples so well...that's a real hard color to match many different shades of purple! Super cute birthday are certainly a pro when it comes to making shakr cards! I'm sure your niece will be thrilled when she sees she received one of her own!


So pretty and cute! Haven't made a trifold or shaker card in awhile. Glad to see you using your craft supplies again. Have a great week!
