Shabby Sunday #2

Shabby Sunday #2

Hello everyone!

Well… another week has passed without much crafting going on… but I managed to get up to my shed tonight to create something for shabby sunday.

I know I said last week that I would make some shabby embelishments, but a change of plan was in order, given the lack of time I had, and made a card instead 🙂

I also challenged myself to use the colour purple, now although I love the colour, I do struggle to make stuff with it.. so here is my wee shabby purple card
