Purple Christmas and some DT news

Third post from me today. I managed to get 3 cards made today but it was too dark to photograph 2 of them and one of them is my DT card for WW anyway. This is still one of my fave Christmas images, even though I find colouring her dress a challenge. I added some raffia lace and ribbon, flowers from Wild Orchid and Marianne die cut snowflakes. I also used my new X cut embossing ivy punch. I used the lovely sketch at Whiff of Joy and the colour theme of lovely in lilac at Bah Humbug and non traditional Christmas colours at Totally Gorjuss.

You may have noticed that sadly the Pocket Full of Posies challenge has closed but Jan and Sandie who ran PFOP also run Stampin' for the weekend and they have invited me to join the DT there, so from 3rd December I will be joining the challenges as a DT member.
