Hey y'all! Another stop in for me today! ;)

*To see my AJVD guest post, please scroll down. 

Talk about cutting it close on time...well, I guess there's a day left. But still. lol I've been seeing a lot of people joining in on The Hop to Stop and I thought it was a great cause to bring awareness to! And to be quite honest, it wasn't something I was even aware of until I started seeing it around blogland...with inspiration comes some knowledge. ;)

Okay, so here's my card.

Oooh, just look at all the purple!! While you may not see much of purple(s) on my cards, you now know I do indeed have purple inks! lol (Note to self: don't be afraid to use purple!)

So I kept things real easy and just used a couple different purple inks for my flowers. Then did some die cutting and layered my pieces together. Simple, yeah?!...

Be sure to swing on over to The Hop to Stop aka Becca's blog! Hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!


  1. owwww, I love the black and white with purple. My husband and I were just talking about that this morning! What colors catch your eyes. I said I would pick up anything if it was black and white with just a pop of color! Wonderful job! It is beautiful

  2. It's a beautiful shade of purple Shelly! Love it!

  3. The word hope is so appropriate for the Hop to Stop Domestic violence. Your projects are gorgeous...I will be dropping in again.
    Do drop by my blog when you can
