Quote of the Week

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Good Morning!  Today is my first challenge as a New Design Team Member for A Crafty Little Place.  The challenge today is a sketch.  True to form, mine is a bit altered.  I tend to do that with sketches.  Now, I have to tell you this funny story.  Gwen asked all of the new DT members a series of questions.  One of those was, "What colors do you love and what colors do you despise?"  I really am not a fan of purple.  So what color is included in my first challenge paper....Purple!  I think it's a conspiracy.  Just Kidding!  These girls are the most amazing people.  They are so kind and supportive so I know it was just my luck.  I don't even have any "real" purple Copics to color with.  So I did my best.  It's not my favorite card.  I promise that my next challenge card will be better.

Claudia is having a HUGE sale on EK Success papers until Aug 7th.  They are 75% off!  Amazing!  Head on over to check them out.  Make sure to check out the new things over at DCRU for July and August as well.

Here is this week's challenge sketch.

Here is my sample:

Supplies: Bazzill Purple cards tock, Eye Candy Garden of Love, Eye Candy Perfect Plaid, Basic Grey Brads, May Arts Wrinkle Ribbon, Greeting Farm Stamp, Fiskars Corner Punch, Copics, foam tape, Clear Spica Atyou pen,  Cuttlebug flower die, purple felt

I hope all of you can join in this fun challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations.

Congratulations on your DT position! I don't dislike purple but I find it very difficult to work with. It's my dearest friend's favorite color so I must work with it from time to time. I love this card! You nailed it. That flower is just lovely!
Hugs & Blessings
