Good afternoon to you all out there in blogland!  Today is the start of another challenge at One Stitch at a Time - our theme this fortnight is anything goes with purple - such a tricky one for me ;o)  I did add a little bit of aqua with my purple though - naughty moi!  My last card for OSAAT was purple as well - my hand had just hovered over the purple pens and card - what can I say - I have no shame!!!

Of course my geraniums in the garden are red - or variations of red - but I have chosen a hybrid one that is purple (and is growing freely on Planet Susie)!  Anything slightly off kilter is usually found on my Planet, as my friends already know!

Apologies for this somewhat short post but I am on antibiotics at the moment for an infection and the bloomin' things are causing heartburn which is most uncomfortable - sorry didn't mean to whinge!
