More Purple


I'm playing along with Becca's Hop to Stop, which is highlighting awareness about domestic violence.

Becca's managed to gather some fabulous hop prizes, so don't forget to pop on over and play along.


I  made these two cards from flower pressings that had been sitting in my stash for four years.  I thought they had a delicate elegance to them until I looked back at the original post where I'd used the other half of the sheet, and they look dowdy by comparison!  But nature is still beautiful, even when it's fading.

In this photo you can see the mirror effect from the pressing.  The sentiments are from STAMPlorations Noteworthy and Strong Women.
