Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 12 April 2015


Good morning to you all, I know you will be surprised to see another challenge from us the Team over at  CD SUNDAY

This challenge is a Special one for us and it is a tribute to our former Design Team Member - 
WENDY - who you will know as Crafting Purple Crazy. 

Wendy stepped down from the DT last year as she was suffering with ill health and sadly she lost her fight earlier this year. 

She was a lovely caring lady and a valued DT member and she had a love for all types of crafting and in particular anything using the Colour PURPLE

I knew Wendy from Facebook before she applied to be part of our Design Team and I was hoping that we could have met last year when we were travelling through France. Sadly this never happened.

We are running this challenge for 4 weeks to give the people in Blogland the chance to share their creations with us and we have fabulous prizes for one lucky entrant who will be chosen by all the Design Team.
 Pop over to the challenge blog to read more about this.

This is my Tribute to Wendy


8 x 8" White Scalloped Card for the base.
My backing paper and main image is from one of Wendy's Favourite CD's
HOUSE MOUSE from Joanna Sheen
I used a beautiful shade of lilac/purple ribbon down the left hand side and added a few pearls for embellishments.
The main image of these cute little Mice has been matted onto a piece of Pearlised Purple Card before adding it to the main card.
My other embellishments are Marianne Dies cut using the same Pearlised Card and finally I chose to add a small handmade bow using the same ribbon with the addition of a larger Pearl Gem.

I do hope you will join in with us for this special challenge and I look forward to visiting you and leaving comments. Please remember to use something from a CD and use the colour PURPLE in your design.

This challenge will run for 4 weeks from today so you have plenty of time to join in with your own tribute to Wendy.
