Pretty in Purple.

Hi there,
It's the Summer holidays for the kids and i've been busier than ever - I've had to cover at work which was busy in itself but on top of that, I got that horrible cold that is making its' rounds.  There is only two of us in the office so I had to put on a brave face and just get on with it.  My eldest son has started a summer job which is a brilliant start to "the real world" and the reality of working -  My youngest son is just hanging out with friends and my daughter is shipped out to Nan's - for part time play days.  Just need to clone myself several times and bingo problem solved.

I've had this card made a few days now and have only just got around to showing it. 

I have really taken with Saturated canary designs.  I've teamed this up with a sizzix sizzlet word - I think a phase of purple is appearing with some of the cards I've made recently.
I've tried getting the blue hue around the image using polychromos and sandsor - but not getting the hang of it too well - urrmmmmhhh! - I use my chalks usually - note to self will have to play more.
