The colour Purple .....

Happy Thursday .......

How are you today?  If your week is anything like mine you'll be ready for the weekend! It's a bit full on in the old craft room at the moment .... just how I like it though!

It's time to launch this months STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge.
As always it's Anything Goes .... anything Clean and Simple that is.  And don't forget, there's the optional colour twist ..... for November's challenge its ...... PURPLE

I love purple, especially at this time of year.  All those gorgeous, warm berry shades.  And how cool does this little guy (or gal) look in purple .....

I've used the STAMPlorations Birds of Paradise stamps for my challenge inspiration piece ...... I love these quirky little birds!

CAS design ...... I've stamped the bird onto a piece of white cardstock and then used Distress inks to add the colour.

A little bit of acetate smooshing using the same purple Distress, adds a little more interest to the background

And one of the sentiments from the same set of stamps finishes off the front .....

I couldn't resist adding another little birdie to the inside .......

You don't have to use the colour twist to enter the challenge but .... if you do, there is a prize up for grabs!
Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to find full details of the challenge and you'll also find more gorgeous purple inspiration from the rest of the Design Team ..... Happy stamping folks!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing evening.  I've been in town with Lauren (not relaxing at all ..... and expensive!!) 
I had a few things to do down there this morning,  Lauren was at the hairdressers having her hair cut so ..... we met up, had coffee, which turned into lunch which was nice, then a quick look around the shops before collecting the little man from school.
Now it's .... wait for hubby to get home from work,  a quick trip to our local wine store to collect our goodies from the last wine tasting, and then feet up in front of the TV.  No doubt one of the bottles we bring home will be opened ....... well, it would be rude not too!  Cheers!

Cheerio until next time ......
