Can’t believe it’s Saturday already, my son and his wife leave back to New York tomorrow, haven’t spent a whole lot of time with them, he wanted to visit friends and other family too, just makes me sad he’s leaving in the morning.

But On the good side a new challenge blog opened yesterday Stampin’ for the weekend and this weeks challenge is to use Purple and Yellow, and first I thought this is easy, but I threw 2 cards away because I didn't like the paper I used. so finally this is what I came up with.


The Beads in on the charm are purple, kinda of looks brown here but their purple and yellow flower

Thanks for looking at my blog, this was a fun challenge
