Too much purple??

Hello there...told you I'd be back! Can't miss a Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch!

It's been another busy Wednesday...work, a physio session, Brownies and Guides...so I always enjoy coming home and having some craft time! It's World Thinking Day on the 22nd February...a day when all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts think about the other members of the Guiding community around the world. Each year we have a theme and raise money for a charity and the guiding community....it's amazing to think that there are young women all around the world celebrating the same thing. At Brownies this evening we learnt about lots of different coutries in the world and we all brought in food from different countries - in total we represented 26 different countries! At Guides we explored the World Thinking Day theme which is gender equality and empowering women - we talked about what this meant and how small things can lead to big changes...it was a really interesting discussion!

Back to the crafting....and I think I might have used a bit too much purple on this card...I got carried away!


I loved using this sketch...thank you Arlana! Pop over to the SSW blog and see all the wonderful DT cards, they're all so gorgeous! The image is from Stamp Fairy...do you remember I won last week's challenge? This fab little fellow is called Kasi and he was drawn by Gerda...I hope I've done him justice!Isn't he cute?! I love the colour combo...all that purple and a splash of bright green...I think its really cheerful!

Right, I've got to get going, I've got a special card to finish off! Tommorow evening I'm going on a ghost bus tour in London with my sister, we've wanted to go for ages and I'm really looking forward to it!

Thanks for popping by today,

Oh no....there can never be too much purple. It is one of my favorite colors. Your card is very cute. I adore that little kitten. The added green Dp is the perfect contrast. Very cute card Wedgie. On your meeting tonight, did you bring food from all 26 countries..?? We have done that before and it is really a fun thing to do. You can learn alot about other countries that way. What a nice project to do with the girls.
Hugs, Nancy

H Wedgie, you can never have to much purple, your mauve. This is one of my very favourite colours and I love your new photo as well. Really cute card I just love that little kitten.
Very pretty papers. Food from 26 countries I do hope New Zealand was there, if so what did they make?

You can never have enough purple in my opinion! This is a darling card and I love how you've used Kasi. Great take on the SSW sketch. Thanks again for joining us week after week - it's fun to see what you create.
