a purple hello...

Hi everyone!!  Happy Friday... pretty excited for the Super Bowl this weekend since the Seattle Seahawks are playing in the big game... GO HAWKS!    Anywhoo... have a pretty plain and simple card that I made for a couple of challenges:  CASology and CAS(E) this Sketch


I started out with a different idea for this card, but gave it up when I realized it just wasn't going to work.  I really tried to make it work, but nope!   As indicated above the card is very simple and on the plain side... did try to perk things up a bit with some bling, though.  I used a Hero Arts background stamp on the purple cardstock, die cut the "hello" with a My Favorite Things die and the "friends" sentiment came from a PTI set.   I should have die cut the white cardstock piece and inlaid the "hello", but didn't think about that until I was done... oh well! 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & purple; Stamps:  Hero Arts & PTI; Ink:  Seedless Preserves & Dusty Concord Distress inks; Dies:  My Favorite Things; Rhinestones:  KI

Great take on the sketch, Rosie! Love that shade of purple, too. Is that the Seahawks' color? Enjoy the game!

Hiya there! GO HAWKS! Yeah, tomorrow is big time around here!
Not so much in our household, though everywhere else! We even had Blue Monday at work, took an hour to do our "pool" and eat Go Hawks cake.

Thanks for playing among friends, love seeing you here, though I pop in your blog time to time - so good seeing you here!

Hugz Kimberly!
