The Card Concept - Forever and Always


Happy Saturday! It's been a long week hasn't it? Time to kick back and relax! Honestly the weekends are the only time things get done at my house. There's always a project going on! But not this week. Everyone has plans except me. So you know what I'll be doing. If I don't get detoured I'm hoping to straighten up my crafty space. It's been getting a work out this week, and it looks like a tornado came through. LOL!!     I'm going to have to lock the dog out - she's still in the habit of laying on my table by the window - all  90 pounds of her.  
Believe me now?

Oh my! Did you see the latest challenge at The Card Concept? Well if you like purple - and oh do I LOVE purple - you will want to check this one out! The challenge this time is to create a project - Monochromatic Purple! I say count me in!! I wanted to pick up on the inspiration photos in the picture - looks like a wedding theme going on - so I added some crochet lace trim, pearls, and some bling swirls. I think this time my style is easier to identify. This one is flat out Classy and Elegant right? 
I'm looking forward to seeing what you make for this one! Happy crafting!
