Paper Maniac Inspirations ~ Pretty in Purple

Hi all! I hope everyone had an awesome Valentine's Day!! The kids are home today for President's Day so we are headed to the mall to do some shopping. They are calling for more snow in Ohio tonight so we will probably make a quick trip to the grocery store just in case.

This week at Paper Maniac we are focusing on monochromatic cards using either blues, greens or purples. I am in LOVE with the Lilac Avenue paper pad from Kaisercraft, so of course, I chose purple! The image and sentiment are both from the Unity November store kit. I stamped the image first with Fresh Snow and then again with Plum Pudding. I used a Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to line up the image so the Plum Pudding ink would give it a shadow effect.

Make sure and check out all the NEW arrivals rolling into the store. While your there use the coupon code HEART22 to take 22% off the new Graphic 45 8x8 paper pads.

Thanks for stopping by! Check back later for the winner of my Blog Candy!!

Hi Angie,
Your card is lovely!! If you like purple, I have a small purple-themed giveaway on my blog if you'd like to join in :)
I've got some Lilac Avenue that I'll probably add in there too :)

This is gorgeous Angie ... of course my favorite color is purple so how could you go wrong with this beauty!!!
Enjoy the day with the kiddos! It seems to be "my fault" we're getting more snow. For the past month every time I make a hair appt. we get a storm ... yep, I have an appt. for tomorrow morning!! Guess I'll just have to let it grow, LOL!!!
