A little bit of Violet Vintage!

Good Morning me lovelies, ooerrr make that good afternoon!
Sorry I have been such a naughty Blogger lately, been suffering from a decided lack of Mojo accompanied by a general feeling of Ennui! 
On the bright side No. 1 son has been home on half term and I always enjoys his company!!.....erm...well... most of the time..... he is a 14yr old, 15 next month teenage boy with all the monosyllabic wonder that comes with this glorious age!!! Lol!!! I do think he is better than most though :) He had a trial for a job in a local restaurant on Friday night, and managed to meet and get 2 hugs and a signed photo from Lorraine Kelley!!!
So onto my card, yes I did manage to get one done!!! FAINT!!
The beautiful image is from the ever wonderful Krista Smith, she is called Violet Vintage and can be found here. I have followed the colour challenge over at the Saturated Canary challenge blog the papers and the chipboard sentiment are from the Sierra collection from Anna Griffin, as soon as I saw this sentiment I thought of Krista, anyone who is familiar with her blog  will know exactly what I mean, and if you haven't visited WHY NOT!!! Lol!! It can be found here.
The Challenges I would like to enter this car into are:
Saturated Canary - Colour Challenge
Deep Ocean - anything goes
Allsorts - Autumn colours
one stop craft challenge - anything goes

Well that's all from me, have a great day!!

  1. Just fabulous Jacqui. I love this image and your colouring and paper choices are fantastic. Love that fine flourish too. So glad that you are getting some quality time with your son. hugs x

  2. Great colours in this card, Jacqui and I love the sentiment! Know what you mean about teenagers being monosyllabic: Gregor is 13 in a couple of weeks and conversation is either a grunt or a one-word answer... unless the subject is football or F1! Enjoy your time with your boy! Hugs Tracey xx
