Sage and her crayons

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a lovely crafty weekend...  I certainly did!  We had an unexpected weekend off work, so I got stuck in and did some colouring in front of the TV.

Shelby and I are sharing our mid-week rubber stamp inspiration over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today and I decided to use Sage for my card.

The papers are from Crate Paper and Cosmo Cricket and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The thickers are from American Crafts (I think) and the sentiment is a sticker from SRM.  I added Stickles to the heart on Sage's shirt  and Glossy Accents over the top of the Stickles and on her glasses.  I also Stickled the thickers.

I'm not all that happy with how this card turned out and I think it is because of the colours I have used.  I really love purple, but it somehow never looks right on a card when I use it.  I'm not very fond of green at all, so I don't really know why I used green.  

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time: Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge: Let's hear it for the girls
Great Impressions: Anything Goes

We have a new challenge running at Little Miss Muffet Stamps this fortnight with a fabulous prize!  The theme is Anything Goes and become a follower and add the news badge to your blog and the prize is three rubber stamps and the Hatty Birthday sentiment!

And if you have the news badge, you will know that we have a new release coming up this Thursday!

That's it from me this morning!   Have a great day!

Hi Arabella, now I think you and I are going to have a bit of a falling out - you don't like green??? Green (and pink and blue and red ;-)) is my favourite colour! What's more I can't see anything wrong with your green.

Your purple is fab too - wish I could get purple right. It and lilac are just no go areas for me - never look right.

And so my conclusion is - another brilliant card!


PS - Glad you had a good colouring weekend

PPS - Sorry I missed the quiz, but have to 'fess up to being terrible at things like that! So I wouldn't have got anywhere anyway!!

Awww, I think it's cute! Funny thing is, my fav color is purple, and I can't tell you one thing that I have made with purple on it within the last year! (so wierd) I just don't think anyone is really making awesome purple paper right now??!!
