Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #24

I've been such a bad challenger the past couple of weeks and have missed two weeks of the SCSC challenges as well as a few others that I religiously take part in. I go away for a few days and totally lose the Hopefully I'm getting back into the swing of it again now.

Anyway this week the challenge over on SCSC is to make a card or any other project using your favourite colour. Well my favourite colours are pinks & purples/lilacs, not neccessarily in cardmaking as I do like to experiment with colours but overall these are my favourites. I've gone for the purple and lilacs for my card.

The background dp is from scraps stash, I'm not 100% sure but I think it's from Dovecraft. The purple card is also from my scraps and embossed it using my bug. Flowers are from my crafting stash and I've added a drop of beads and used a fancy button in the centre of the flower to hold it all together. Ribbon from my stash, with a tied knot and pearl brad. The 'Cherish' round is from Funky Fairys, cut using circle scalloped nesties, then mounted onto paper from PM, also cut with the nesties. To finish added some card candy to bottom left corner.

Well it's a gorgeous Spring day here today, was quite a heavy frost this morning, but thats all gone now. We have one of Steve's girls coming today for a weeks holiday. Some of you may remember a couple of months ago that she was really quite poorly and came and stayed with us for a few days. Well for weeks afterwards she still kept getting these migraine type headaches, losing feeling in her arms and legs and constantly tired. Well after numerous tests over a month, she was told she has a form of anemia, it's got some fancy name but I can't remember that, I didn't even realise there were different types. She is now being treated and within a day of starting the meds, she felt better then she had done in years and so much more energy. Her employers have been brilliant, as she hadn't done a full weeks work since Christmas, and they still paid her her full wage, so she offered to cancel her weeks leave, but they had said it wasn't neccessary. What great employers!!

Right waffled on enough, got a bed to make up and a bit of H******k to do.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend and especially all the mum's tomorrow, hope you have a wonderful day xxx

Lovely card Joanne, I love these colours too. I know what you mean about getting out of your routine, we have been doing a lot of painting lately, both inside and out, and it throws you off doing the important stuff like making cards!!!!
