Purple/pink and black

I love crafting with purple and am very fond of pink as well, particularly vibrant pink, so this was another excuse to use one of those doilies that I got this morning (at this rate they'll all be gone soon - lol!). This is for Stampotique 49: purple/pink and black. I used Janet Klein's butterfly stamp, colouring with a selection of copics: V04, V09, V15, V17, BV04, BV31 and RV 10. This is good for the V family challenge this week for iCopic lover 73. Flowers with pearls and the black paisley shapes from the 99p store. The card blank is a stardream pearlised light purple.

Bright pink for Easter

I had an appointment for a dental check-up this morning (all was fine, thankfully) and on the way back home I needed to get some cheap envies from Poundland for everyday use (bills and things - not worth using the good stuff for those - lol). Anyway, I happened to have a quick browse in Poundland and came across a pack of 30 doileys - 10 large blue ones (don't think they'll ever get used), 10 white and floral about 7" across (might be useful one day) and 10 bright pink ones about 5.5" across. I decided to use some of these straight away, so here is my first card with the doiley mounted on to a pink and white striped card. This was actually half of a card blank that was the same back and front, so I cut it to be able to make two cards by mounting on a white blank.The other bits and pieces were all bought on a previous visit to Poundland.

Suzie's 365 day 73: shapes in nature

I'm afraid it's a bit of cheat for Suzie's day 73: shapes in nature - this was taken a year or so ago, but I still think it's worth showing. If I have any light bulb moment of inspiration later I might add something new. Meantime, here it is:
