Purple & Silver Wedding:




Oh my!  How can Thanksgiving be over??!!  Now it is pretty much mid-October - where is the time going??  And the sun?  It's not even up yet!  Hopefully the snow will stay away at least until we have the yard cleaned up for winter.  I still have flowers in bloom in the front yard - Autumn has been beautiful here!!

Today I have another simple card to share with you all.  Sometimes I find simple, more easier cards a bit more gentler on my brains as our new puppy (Pixie) is still keeping me up several timers per night.  Last night at 2 AM,  she peed on a dry-clean-only bedspread.  She's definitely spunky :)

I certainly can't be mad at her:


As you can see, I am babbling, which usually means I am tired and not thinking straight.  I should definitely start drinking my extra strong coffee now :)
I was a little worried sewing on this card - I usually do zig zag stitch which hides the fact that I can't sew straight :)
Card Ingredients:
Colorbook papers;   Bazzill and Recollections cardstock;  Circle, Scalloped Oval, and Oval Nesties;  Martha Stewart Bouquet Paper Flowers and Leaves;  Schmooch Vanilla Spritz;  Recollections pearls.

I made this wedding card for the following challenges:  For Fun Challenges and  Kaboodle Doodles - use leaves;  Colour Create Challenge - lilac, grey and white;  Glitter Geeks - Flower Power;  Heart Song Inspirations and Just Add Ink- use die cuts;    Corrosive Challenge - purple plus one other color    Sketckbook Saturday - use Chupa's sketch (I have used it twice I thought it was so pretty!): 


With that said, I need to finish my coffee before it gets cold and get ready for work.

Stay crafty,
Deanne :)

This is a beautiful card. Very classy. For someone who says she can't sew straight you sure did a great stitching job. Thanks for joining us at Glitter Geeks.
