Purple.....and Candy!

Hi everyone!

Where has this week gone?  I cannot believe that tomorrow is already Friday!  Whew.... my mom always told me that the older I got, the faster the days would go.  I think she was right :)

I delivered water samples to the lab for DH today (3 hours round trip), had lunch with Shirley, and got a few groceries in.  Then, I came home and played with purple paper!  What did you do for fun today?

Today's card is for the Purple Challenge at Impression Obsession's Blog.   I used an Impression-Obsession sentiment, "Peaceful Season Wishes".

 
Sadly, I have a very limited supply of I-O stamps, so you will find me using the same stamps over and over!  Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Ink was used to stamp the sentiment.  The snowflakes are punched with a punch I have had for years, and there is no manufacturer's name on it.  The center of the snowflakes have one of those little sparkly snowballs - sorry, don't know who makes them either!

The weekend is just around the corner - hope that you have something fun planned.  I'm pretty sure that our weekend will include B*A*S*E*B*A*L*L - Go Cardinal's!!!!!  (So sorry Ranger fans, I do love my Redbirds, and you simply have to love our Rally Squirrel!

Now for some CANDY!

A few weeks ago, this issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine came out.  I was lucky enough to have a tag in it.  I subscribe to the magazine already, and S&SA sent me a copy for having something in the magazine. I now have two copies!



I'd love to send a copy to someone that doesn't have one!  Please leave a comment here on this post.  No rules or regulations - just tell me that you would like to win!  On Sunday, October 23rd, "Random dot someone" will draw for a winner!

Have a good weekend - Hugs and blessings...Patti J.

Oh Patti! I love this card! Purple is my favorite color and I love everything about this - that sentiment is so sweet too. Would love to win this magazine - have never even heard of it! First comment does not often win with random, but keeping my fingers crossed anyway :)

I'd love to win your magazine, since I don't get it. Then I could look up your tag! My neighbor would go insane over your card, she is a purple fanatic. The Christmas card that I make for her is ALWAYS purple!

I'd love to win your magazine, since I don't get it. My neighbor would go insane over your card, both she and her hubby are purple fanatics! Every card I ever make for her has to have purple on it someplace.
