Purple Thank You

It's a Clean and Simple theme at Top Tip Tuesday this fortnight, and I've opted for my safe fall-back layout!

I'm sorry if you've seen it before (a few times), but for a C&S novice like me, it's what I feel most comfortable with.  And with this layout I don't start any OCD-induced twitching from the lack of embellishments.

I've premièred one of my new rubber acquisitions. When I saw some samples from the Purple Onion Designs blog, it didn't take long for me to give in and place an order with Michelle who runs the store.

Quite a few stamps managed to accidentally fall into my basket, and they arrived within a couple of weeks from across the pond.  They're slightly smaller than I'd expected, but they are gorgeous and stamp perfectly.  So in order that the image didn't look tiny on my usual 6" card bases, I've made a marginally smaller 5" base card for this one.  Luckily I've found a matching envelope for it.

As always, another gorgeous card :) That little owl is so adorable. I know what you mean about an easier layout for CAS newbies...hehe...Although I still find some images just wont suit even being laid out like this! Your colouring is gorgeous as always and love the twine across the top, really finishes it off. Hugs xx
