Ching-Chou Kuik's Purple Comfort........in lavender,lace & pearls...

Good evening peeps how ya all doin'? I did mean to photo & post this at lunch-time but its been 1 of those days where I've not had time for anything.....are there really 24 hours in a day cus I think I'm being jipped ya know!!! Anyway I have a hubby who has chicken pox according to our nice doc today....just lovely & I have children who need fed so I'm gonna TRY & keep this short.
Stokie Shell if you are reading sweetie I havn't forgot to ring you sweetie I will ring you later as long as my 14 year old son keeps off the phone to his girlfriend long enough lol.
Anyway onto my card PFP have a challenge set by my lovely boss Emma & the theme is Lavender, Lace & Pearls. The lace & pearls are easy peasy however I'm not really a lavender-lilacy-purply kinda gal.....BUT I really enjoyed doing this card & I have even used 1 of my new stamps hubby got me about a month ago.. woo-hoo. Here is my card..........
Here is 'Purple Comfort' by the super talented ching-chou kuik.....I absolutely love this artist!!!! Isn't she soooo pretty & I love the puddy-tats. She is of course coloured with Promarkers.

It is of course an easel card.......I bet you thought I forgotten about the lace & pearls....way-not-likely, they are the important parts lol. I am really pleased with how this card has turned out & I'm gonna seek out some more lilac paper as this was my only 2 sheets lol & I think I will be making more lilac creations. OH NO I've got to shop for paper.....but a gals gotta do wat she gotta do.....he he hee. I'm sure I will survive an hour or 2/3 on the net shopping lol.

I got my 'Amour' stamp which I hadn't got around to using til now, I pressed it onto Versamark Watermark stamp pad & randomly stamped onto lilac card. I sprinkled on embossing powder & applied my heat gun & voila this is the result....I LOVE it!!!


This is the remainder of the card, I also stamped it onto off white card & used black embossing powder & then cut out the tag using my Magnolia Doo Hickey die & inked the edges with 'Milled Lavender' distress ink. I had some lace in my stash tied it into a bow then attached a string of pearls which I got from my jewellery craft stash. Oh notice the stitching my darling hubby brought me a sewing machine this morning so I just HAD to use it lol. It was on a sale actually for 69.99 down from 139.99....bargain & you can buy it from here

This is to try show the sparkle.

List of materials used.......
Paper is Websters Pages ' Lullaby Lane & Life's Portrait', 30 mm Lilac Mulberry Curly Rose, 20mm Lilac Rose, Lilac Cherry Blossom & Pearl Bead Spray are all available at Crafty Emma's Store she also has the new 35mm Gardenia's in her shop now which are gorgeous!!!!!
Everything else is from my stash.

Well thats about it I hope you like my card. I also want to thank peeps for leaving me comments regarding a printer. I have decided to stick with my Epsom even though for some reason I have to run a clean on it way too often, the quality is still good & the ink is sooo cheap off the net.....so why replace it??? Thankyou every1 for the advice I really appreciate it.
Well off to link up now maybe I will be back later but no promises lol.
Thanks for stopping by & sending you all hugs for leaving the lovely comments you leave, you are all the best!!!!

Loads huggles Vicky xxx
