Good morning everyone out there - although we are having 'April showers' (lots of the bloomin' things!) we do seem to be getting the sunshine through too. Went shopping yesterday to McArthurGlen 'Designer' Outlet 'cos the maestro wanted a new jacket for his hols! Needless to say there is also a Cadbury Factory Shop so I had a little peep and a sniff in the doorway - of course I didn't have any! Okay okay only some Buttons - it would have been rude not to!!! In the end - no jacket - however we now have two new purple suitcases, one pair of shoes for the maestro and one superbly gorgeous handbag for moi - and ... the maestro told me to buy it!!! How positive is that???
Well - I'm here to post my next card for the Through the Purple Haze challenge DT. Our theme is to use a number - I wanted to be able to use my card for any birthday so with a little thinking outside me box (coo that hurt!) I used a '2' instead of a 'to' in my sentiment. I can see a number so it's not cheating!!!

The image I used is called Shaylee - isn't she a cutie? I wanted to use pink for my base card but didn't have the 'right' shade so I took a piece of Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card in Fresh Pink and folded it at the 7" mark and the bit left was exactly - yup exactly - the right size for the front of my design. Naturally I had to cut a strip off the top to make it a 7" square blank. I haven't used any punches for quite a while now so I found a Martha Stewart border punch for the edge and some Nellie Snellen punches for the flowers and foliage. Only two actual dies used - am getting withdrawal symptoms already methinks!!
