Happy Wednesday? How’s your holiday prep going? I’m mostly on track except that I should be sending my Christmas cards out and haven’t even started addressing the envelopes yet. I worked so hard earlier this year with my Christmas Card Catch Up project, so I have the cards made and ready…now I just need to MAIL THEM!
But for now…it’s time for another installment of my Purple Passion column over at MFP Speedy TV.
So…have you heard the news?!?! Pantone has announced the color of the year for 2014…and it’s PURPLE!!! I’m doing a happy dance!!! The shade is officially called Radiant Orchid..but hey, it’s purple!
Yesterday a friend asked me to make a congratulations card with a blackbird in a Santa hat. I didn’t ask what in the heck he was thinking…I just said yes! Anyway, here is the result, and of course I had to work some of my favorite color in there!
I cut a speech bubble out with my Silhouette Cameo and then stamped it with one of the sentiments from the Mark’s Finest Paper’s Be A Showoff stamp set. Then I cut out the bird on the branch and a little Santa hat. I used white flocking on the hat to make it look like fur, and then popped everything up on some DCWV Christmas paper. All of that was stacked on some gorgeous lilac cardstock…there’s my purple!! I made a black envelope just for something different!
