Purple Hearts...It's not what you think!!

Hmmn!  It wasn't until I typed the title of this post until I realised what I had created - Purple Hearts!  That will be funny if someone types in Purple Hearts into the Google search!!

I have been playing with my lovely Sweet Poppy stencils again.  This time I used purple glitter, which in case you haven't realised - purple is one of my favourite colours.

I just love this ribbon which I have had a while, but I am what some called "tight! with it and only use it for schpecial projects. It does count as VOS though. The green backing card was bought a loooong time ago.  Some punched Martha Stewart butterflies and it was done.  
All made up into an easel card to pop in my box for when I have one of those "oops" moments.  In fact I have a few birthdays coming up this month including my Boss so I may just use it very soon!

I have used a couple of Snippets being the card the sentiment is on and the punched ribbon underneath so I shall be popping this into the Playground.

The theme over at the Craft Room Challenge is Trees and Leaves - woohoo!  My first time at this challenge site.

Thanks for popping over.

Clever girl Sam - love the stencil and you always make it look so good. Mind you, a certain fuchsia wall hanger here would be very hard to beat too!

Hugs, Di xx

You are naughty!
This is beautiful and shows that a pretty stencil needs little else to create a stunning card.

This is very pretty. I love that stencil on the easel card...Hope to try one of those soon.
Being a bit of a cheapo and trying to use up the cards I have in!
I still have my lovelies I got in Tadley too!!!

That is a gorgeous white bloom just behind your card!

Just came in from washing the outside windows on the ground floor level. Think i will have to hang out the upstairs bedroom windows to do those!!! I am thinking of taking off the screens and using a squeegy...what a cheater I am! lol

Should be doing the insides now but we are out of my favourite window cleaner "Invisible Glass". Neva streaks! Oh well, good excuse to catxh up on visiting and commmenting.

Me again...what was the name of the program you use when you craft with other people around the world? Going to look and see if it is on this new computer...maybe we can virtual craft soon!
