Shades of Purple!

Hello Crafty Friends and Visitors, gosh Monday once again, where does the time go?????
I hope you are well and raring to go with another week.

I had a very strange strange comment left on my last post, some of you may have noticed it, I've deleted it now, but  I would just like to say to Gentleman who left it, please don't leave another of this sort, this lady is not for turning!!

However, thanks to everyone else who left very kind comments, I love reading them and always appreciative of the time you take to do this.

It's a miserable day today with drizzling rain, very dull, just perfect for getting a spot of crafting done, so here is today's offering,
Our friend Dougie asked me to make this for a friend, it has to have the friend's name, a cat, happy birthday on it and be quite girlie.
House Mouse image coloured with Promarkers
First Editions Dreamcatcher Paper
Core'dination Lilac and Green  Card
The Ribbon Girl Purple Seam Binding
Hobby Craft Lace
Flowersoft sentiment
WO pin and Flowers
Tattered Lace Alphabet
MB leaves
Dazzler and gems from my box
Liquid pearls

I had fun doing this card as I've not made such a fussy one for ages, I hope Cecillia likes it.

As much as I would like to have the night in, I've got Choral practise later one so I'll have to go out into the cold and rain.  I always enjoy the evening once I'm there, it's just the thought of having to go out.

So I get myself off now and forage for our meal tonight, take care everyone
I would like to enter my card into;

Kate what fabulous card filled with all sorts of nice embellishments. I see that you had no trouble at all incorporating all of the items on your friends wish list and did it beautifully. I'm sure she will be thrilled with this one. We are very glad that you joined us here at House Mouse & Friends this week with this darling card and do hope to see you again soon. I'm sorry you have to go out in that bad weather. I have that feeling all the time of not wanted to go out in bad weather ( especially the cold) but, as you said, I always have a great time once I'm there.. So have fun tonight and I'm wishing you a great week ahead.

Hi Kate
Sorry I'm all behind again. Loved the baubles and love this one too. A nice level of fussy. That is my wonderful late Mums name but spelt differently.
I'm very intrigued now as to what comment some chap left you. I hope he wasn't offering to enhance something for you lol !
Take care.
