'Plum' Good

It's time for another 'splash' of color over at

I love this photo and I love 'plum'

I cannot believe I traveled all the way to Christmas with this card,
but I ordered some new Gina K Designs stamps and couldn't
wait to play with them.  As soon as I saw the splash, I knew what
I wanted to do.  I used new paper from FarmHouse Paper Company
called 'Fair Skies' {ordered from} and the
shade was perfect.
The little bows are baker's twine from The Twinery and always
make a nice little embellishment.  I used Charcoal and Lilac.

I love CAS for Christmas !

This week, we welcome a brand new sponsor to The Cafe

So make sure you join us in The Cafe this week.

One more thing . . . 

In two weeks time, we will be celebrating our

I can't reveal anything now, but suffice to say, there will be
lots of great giveaways, five days of posts and some
terrific surprises.
