Gorjuss in Purple

We've woken up to a lovely bright calm day today. I hope those of you in Scotland and the north of the UK are having better weather today and that yesterday's dreadful weather there didn't do too much damage.

This week at Winter Wonderland it's my turn to host the challenge and I have chosen Let it Snow. We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles and you could win 3 digis of your choice so I hope you'll come and join in the fun. I've made another purple Christmas card, not made many in this colour this year, using one of the Gorjuss girls coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with lots of glitter. The backing paper is Craft Creations, the other is Papermania. I've used the MS snowflake border punch and some purple ribbon. The snowflakes are some of the Kars wooden ones coloured with a Promarker and some made with glitter card and 3 different MS snowflake punches.
Challenges:
Incy Wincy Non traditional colours
Creative Card Crew Tis the Season
Ladybug Crafts Ink Snowflakes and sparkle
For Fun Christmas Sparkle
St Luke's Charity Let it Snow!
The first batch of Christmas cards were posted yesterday. 9 left to make which are mostly hand deliveries. The Christmas decs are coming out of the loft later and hoping to get some pressies wrapped this weekend. Hope your preparations are going well and you all have a good weekend.

Hi Marianne, I'm not very fond of purple but I don't know why, purple crafts keep catching my eye lately , maybe my tastes are changing.. maybe it's just that your card is really beautiful...
